Problem One: It’s 1:33 a.m, you've been studying all night, and you want a cookie. Solution: Boulder Baked

Boulder Baked offers 24 varieties of cookies, including the Kona: a chocolate espresso, macadamia nut and coconut cookie. But this bakery doesn't just sell cookies; it also has whole pies and simple comfort food, like the giant helping of tomato bisque soup served with a grilled cheese sandwich.

The homemade cooking comes straight from the recipes of the Comstock family, which owns and operates the five-year old business. There are days when you may see the entire family working at Boulder Baked, with the husband-and-wife team of Katie and Jim Comstock working in the kitchen alongside their daughter, Kirsten, while their son, Kevin, a University of Colorado student, sets out to make the deliveries. “Kirsten is kinda the primary of the business, “ explains Katie. “She’s always been the dessert queen.”

Boulder Baked offers snazzy care packages for those hectic test times, and can send upwards of ten mini-care packages daily.

“It’s wholesome to send something extra-special that’s homemade,” says employee Jessica Fonseca, also a CU student.

Boulder Baked is located at 1911 Broadway in Boulder and is open daily from 4 p.m. until 2:30 a.m. Which provides the answer to another dilemma.

Problem Two: Dude, I can’t move from this spot. Solution: Boulder Baked delivers until 2 a.m. -- Elena Brown

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
