Exclusive first look: Lucky's Bakehouse and Creamery opens in Boulder

In the meantime, there's no shortage of sweets -- and all of Bush's creations are scratch-made, including the all-organic ice creams and sorbets. "I wanted to do things that are pretty to look at, and, more important, good to eat, but we don't want to take ourselves too seriously -- we don't want to be snotty -- so we're doing things that people are familiar with and just elevating them and taking them up a notch," she says, while shaking her head in disbelief at the Friday afternoon romp that keeps swinging through the doors.

"I had no idea we were going to open up to this kind of crowd. We've had a constant stream of people that hasn't stopped," says Bush. "We're literally blown away by the response."

When I interviewed Bush on Friday, I also had the opportunity to get up close and personal with her beautiful pastries, the photos of which are on the following pages.

Make sure you get there early. I swung in around 3:30, 4:00 on Saturday and there were not many dessert options left, especially if looking for options for dinner for two (other than cupcakes and ice cream [the drive-in popcorn flavor is nice], several large cakes where on display).


They've been selling some of the desserts in Lucky's Market pre-opening: nice salt caramel brownie, meh sticky buns.


I liked Jen's Blue Point Bakery that used to be on Pearl a number of years ago, just that that place suffered from lack of options: hoping that will not be the case at the Bakehouse.
