Babettes Artisan Bread departed The Source, and Denver, last November, but Steve Scott's artisan breads were not lost forever. Scott and his wife, Catherine, are launching a bigger version of their bakery today (Saturday, February 9) in Longmont, and they've added pizza to the menu. The new shop is called Babettes Pizza & Pane, and it will start serving pizzas from a wood-burning oven at 11 a.m. The bakery will be open at 7 a.m. every day but Monday, and pizza will be served for dinner Tuesday through Friday, and for lunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.
