From bagels to baguettes, cinnamon rolls to croissants, the tantalizing taste of freshly baked goods is never far off in Durango. Without these mouth-watering morning confections, the morning coffee just wouldn’t be the same. Luckily, Durango's baking establishments provide a wealth of breads and pastries to help temper any caffeine addiction. So tip your mug to the early morning crews who brave those ungodly cold hours to deliver the goods, fresh and warm, to the carbo-craving masses.
