What better way to celebrate this first day of spring than with a delicious fresh pastry? We just rounded up the Eleven Best Bakeries in Denver, and while readers wondered why certain spots didn't make the cut — where was Grateful Bread? Taste of Denmark? Gateaux? GoochieCakes? — several of our picks were quickly seconded by readers. Sugar Bakeshop, Detour and Beet Box all won applause, and the entire list inspired Alexis to say simply:
Now I am starving!
Do you have a favorite bakery? For the Best of Denver 2016 Readers' Poll, we divided the Best Bakery category into two categories: Savory and Sweet. Here are the finalists in both, as selected by our readers:
Grateful Bread Company
Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen
Taste of Denmark
Wooden Spoon Cafe & Bakery
Babette's Artisan Bakery
You can vote for the finalists until 11:59 on Wednesday, March 23, on the Best of Denver 2016 Readers' Poll. And remember, the food writers of Westword will offer their own winners in these categories, too.
