Best Bites: Trompeau’s Ham and Cheese Croissant


There’s simply no better way to start the morning than with a flaky ham-and-cheese-filled croissant from Trompeau Bakery. Layer after layer of buttery puff pastry are spun around nutty cheese and smoky meat for the ideal savory bite. The crescent-shaped treats—plain, filled, and otherwise—are so delightful, it’s rumored that Brasserie Felix, a French eatery in northwest Denver, serves them at their weekend brunch.

Of course, there’s more to this DU-area boulangerie than just croissants. Stop in for chaussons (turnover-like goodies) and fresh-from-the-oven quiche, or pick up a baguette or bâtarde for later in the day.
