Was downloading the pics off my phone from my recent visit to Colorado Springs, and I came across this little gem that my sister took.

Oh yeah, the croissants, the flaky, buttery naughtiness that totally made our whole day. Pure heaven, I tell ya.

There’s this cute little bistro in the Springs called La Baguette that’s an absolute must-visit if you’re ever in the area. They have the most incredible French onion soup with a thick, melty cap of gruyére gracing the top. When you break through all that cheese, the soup underneath is just as remarkable. It just might be my all-time favorite French onion soup.

While I hear their frites are also to-die for, I’d just be happy with another one of these croissants. When I was in Paris, I had a chocolate croissant every single day, so I hate to order that to compare, naturally. But my sister wisely ordered the cream cheese-stuffed delight on the left, and it was nothing short of perfection. Trust me, the pictures don’t even do it justice.

If all those incredible pastry layers weren’t already delicious enough, the cream cheese cream totally sends it over the top. That, with a nice strong cappuccino, made for what was easily the best breakfast I had while I was there (Starbucks, eat your heart out!).
