Location: 3990 Broadway, (North) Boulder
When you go to your local grocery store, what are you expecting from their bakery? Maybe some crazy-sugary cookies and cupcakes, or a vanilla cake with whipped cream frosting? No question, the bar is set pretty low. Lucky’s Bakehouse and Creamery in North Boulder surpassed all those expectations and then some.
What we learned: get there early for croissants
The Bakehouse is located adjacent to the main Lucky’s grocery store in North Boulder. Walk in and immediately start eating with your eyes. The display counter has a diverse and colorful array of cupcakes, pies, cookies, bars, full cakes, and ice cream. YUM. It all looked delicious. We were told that the croissants are the specialty- they make 15 of each of 3 types (regular, chocolate, and almond), every morning; they’re usually sold out by 10am! We will definitely have to make a morning return trip ASAP.
What we ate: Carrot cake and blondies
My only complaint about the Bakehouse is that there are too many options! We couldn’t decide what we wanted. After ages of deliberation, we settled on a carrot cake cupcake and a blondie. Both were absolutely delicious. The carrot cake had visible shreds of carrots and was not super sweet, and the cream cheese frosting was perfect. Not that you can ever go wrong with cream cheese frosting. The blondie was also a perfect level of sweetness and topped with lots of toasted walnuts. Bonus points for being gluten free!
Lucky’s Bakehouse is a spot that we will definitely be visiting again. The wide variety of baked goods and even ice cream makes me wish I lived in North Boulder, closer to the shop. They take pride in their small-batch, house-made products and for good reason. They make so many delicious products, with a large portion of them gluten free. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that they also serve ice cream and coffee (Hayley's two favorites). The shop is very cute with tons of light and a garage door that is opened during warmer weather; a great spot to hang out and chat with friends and eat a tasty treat. We highly recommend this shop for all your baked good cravings.
