French Toast, Pastries, and High Hopes

Tuesday proved to be a beautiful day of relaxing and exploring towns surrounding Avon. We drove to Edwards in the morning with the intention of tasting Colorado’s best French Toast at The French Press. We got there at 11:03 am, only to be told that the breakfast kitchen closes at 11. No exceptions. So we walked out the door with our tails tucked between our legs.

We walked around Edwards in search of an alternate place to eat and found Bonjour Bakery, a little French place. It was delicious AND affordable ($5.50 for a large soup with bread rolls, $6 for a meat-packed sandwich, and $3-4 for a pastry!)! All-in-all, it was FANTABULOUS! For not-too-sweet, not-too-heavy, not-too-diet-breaking pastries, BONJOUR BAKERY IS AWESOME!!!! In fact, it was so genius that we went back the day after day for more pastries and croissants!

That night, we took a trip to Vail, which is a mere 15-minute drive west of Avon. We went Lionshead Village and Vail Village (I liked the latter better) and went to a contemporary restaurant that is rated as one of the top three restaurants in the area: Sapphire. Personally, I thought that although the food was quite good, nicely presented, and not too pompous (you know, like those fancy restaurants that serve you a tablespoon of edible substance in the middle of an extra large entree plate), the relatively high price tag left my palate disappointed.
