Baguette & Co Review – French Bakery And Coffee House In Kitsilano

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.

We admired the enormous, decadent-looking cream puffs/profiteroles with generous portions of whipped cream sandwich between choux pastries and dusted with confectioners’ sugar.

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.

Ham & Cheese Panini – Made on a French baguette with thick slices of black forest ham and sliced tomatoes, this tasty sandwich was slightly toasted and very satisfying.

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.

Strong Americanos made with fair trade and organic Salt Spring Coffee.

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!
