DU-area bakery moves to bigger space

Come April, DU denizens used to getting their French fix at Trompeau Bakery on Evans Avenue are going to have to travel a little further south to satisfy their croissant cravings.

The bakery — currently at 1729 E. Evans Ave. — will be moving to a larger space at 2950 S. Broadway, located on the east side of Broadway south of Bates Avenue, by early May. It will stay in its original space until at least April 23, so that customers can pick up their pastries and goodies before the Easter holiday.

“It’s still just a nice bike ride away from here,” says owner Barbara Trompeau. “It will all be the same, just in a bigger space.”

Trompeau and her husband, Pascal, moved to Denver from Vierzon, France, and opened the DU community staple in January 1997. They have been busy baking breads, quiches, cinnamon rolls, cookies and galettes there ever since.

The new space is three times larger than the bakery’s current digs, and Trompeau says she expects to add a few more employees to accommodate more customers.

There is no word on what will move into the Evans Avenue storefront, although Trompeau says there already has been a lot of interest.
