Excellent breads and pastries with wide diversity. "Entree" lunches with soups too. Take some home or enjoy in the quaint cafe.

Well I think my title sums it up- The chocolate Croissants were very good, and Ham Croissants were also quite tasty- We were there in August and it looked like they had recently moved from a few doors down in the riverwalk, So that maybe why I found the decor a bit sub-par, Don't get me wrong- its not awful- If it was Dillon or Winterpark it would fit right in- But this is the riverwalk in Edwards- More is expected here.

The girl at the counter was attractive, clean and friendly- What I can't let go and the reason for my review is what I witnessed from the noticibly dirty unkempt person I believe was the manager or owner- wearing very dirty & stained t shirt and jeans, and while the customers were careful to use tissue paper while reaching to get pastry out of the display- I watched him go from handling money at the cash register to grabbing rolls and croissants with his BARE HANDS- he did not wash them in-between etc, and not just once by a fluke- but consistently- several different times, going from one task wiping counters etc to food handling with no gloves, no washing.... then I started looking around a bit more at the overall appearance of the shop- dirty would be the word, floors that hadn't been swept, tables that hadn't been wiped etc, which makes me wonder- how is the kitchen and food prep area kept?

I'm sure I've been in plenty restaurants that have subpar sanitation and the food is good- But I noticed this one and couldn't let it go, the best thing I could have done and you should do would be get breakfast to go- and not look around too much.....

We went out of our way to find this bakery after making ann early-morning trip to the farmer's market in Edwards. I guess I was expecting more. The butter croissant was a bit heavy, not flaky or light. The palmier cookie was excellent, however! We also purchased a loaf of pumpkin-raisin bread, which I thought could have used more spice. The young lady at the counter said the baking is not done on-premise...so I'm not sure where they are baking these items. The fresh fruit tarts looked wonderful. I guess we were expecting to see more items...more varied selection...and would have liked more atmosphere to the place. Call us picky!

I adore the Boujour Bakery! The bread is the best, the pies are to die for and the sandwiches are great. The bakery is small and uncomplicated with a wonderful staff. Try the fresh fruit torts, chocolate mousse pies or the daily soups. Good value and service, I would highly recommend.
