If you are a fan of baguettes but don’t necessarily have the time or patience to make them, I have a place for you.
About a year ago, I found the cutest little Parisian cafe after reminiscing on my Paris vacation. I was missing this one cafe I ate near the Louvre.
I stumbled upon the cutest little cafe in Las Vegas called, The Baguette Cafe.

What is a baguette?
According to spoon university, “the word baguette comes from the Italian word “bacchetta” which translates to baton.” If you notice the shape of a baguette, it’s very similar to what a baton looks like.
They have a crispy outer layer with a chewy center.
Baguettes are perfect for jam and butter, sandwiches, or bruschetta. They are very symbolic of French culture.
This place is a hidden gem on the Southwest side of town. It’s located off the 215 on Sunset and Durango.
The Baguette Cafe is a French Bistro that serves fresh bread just like the one I had in Paris.
*I’m doing my happy dance*
The owner, Olivier, welcomes everyone like an old friend and always makes sure his customers are happy.
The smell of fresh bread, as you walk in, is like no other.
Don’t even get me started on their selection of pastries and coffee.
The Pear Tart was delish delosh!!
In other words, order the Pear Tart.
Above all, this Cafe has everything from quiches, croissants, and sandwiches, to vegan and vegetarian options. Most importantly, they have a large selection of cakes.
Support local businesses like the Baguette Cafe. Restaurants like this Cafe can always use our help.
It’s a bonus when the food is really tasty and takes you on a travel journey.
