Two years ago bakery owner, actress and Texan Elizabeth Chambers announced that she'd be bringing her Bird Bakery to Denver, and now the day has finally come. The Denver Tech Center pastry shop debuted on March 16, making it just the third in the country for Bird Bakery, after San Antonio and Dallas. Bird offers far more than sweet treats; you can grab a satisfying breakfast or lunch of sandwiches, quiches, granola, croissants and even pimento cheese popovers. The bakery also makes whole pies and cakes for special occasions. Bird is now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
