We absolutely adore Faubourg in Kerrisdale and find ourselves there quite often, either dining in their Bistro for brunch or enjoying a few of their sinfully good pastries. However, we thought it was time to try a French bakery that we had never been to before and that was closer to our Kits home, such as the highly rated Baguette & Co.Located on West Broadway and Blenheim in Kitsilano, Baguette & Co is a delightful French patisserie offering a large selection of decadent baked goods and exquisitely crafted desserts.
Chefs in their massive industrial kitchen create tempting delicacies like almond croissants, special occasion cakes, pistachio danishes, fruit tarts & pies, and sugary brioche just to name a few.
The raspberry pies looked equally as indulgent, so it was difficult deciding what to order, but we finally decided on their Lunch Special ($8.90) – 1 lunch item of your choice (quiche/pizza/savoury croissant), 1 can of pop (or 1 Americano + $0.50), and 1 cold pastry. For our lunch items, we each chose a panini for $1.00 extra.
The Chicken & Brie Panini was also served on a nice and chewy baguette and included dried sweet cranberries and lovely melted brie cheese. Both paninis were served with a small side salad consisting of sliced tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, and drizzled with an olive oil & tangy balsamic vinegar dressing.
We would highly recommend Baguette & Co for authentic French pastries and reasonably priced lunch specials. Check them out the next time you feel like indulging yourself!
