More than 20 years after it opened for business in Englewood, Trompeau Bakery is making a play to draw downtown Denverites to its signature French delights.

What's happening: Trompeau opened its new Denver location on the 16th Street Mall this week, a move owner Beth Ginsberg tells us was prompted by learning about available space along the corridor.

  • It's located on the first floor of the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown hotel, taking over a former Starbucks location.

Zoom in: Ginsberg said their specialty, 31 sweet and savory croissants, and other items will be prepared at its Englewood bakery, and brought frozen downtown for baking.

  • She recommends the almond croissant.

Between the lines: Trompeau is partnering with locally based Kaladi Coffee Roasters for its drinks, and will serve a custom chocolate almond croissant ice cream created with Bonnie Brae Ice Cream.

Of note: Ginsberg says she's not dismayed by the impact construction is having on foot traffic in the area and hopes the connection to the hotel will help drive business.
