Coquette's expands space and menu

Posted By on Thu, May 31, 2012 at 10:54 AM

In this week's Side Dish column, I briefly mention the minor renovation and expansion of Coquette's Bistro & Bakery.

Co-owner Michelle Marx actually provided me much more information on the overhaul than I could fit into print this week.

Firstly, here are the nuts and bolts of it, in Marx's e-mailed words:

Don't think of us as a creperie anymore. We still make our fabulous crepes all day but with the remodel came new menus. Our breakfast/lunch adds burgers and new specialties. Between 4-5 pm we serve solely cocktails and apps from a new all-day bar featuring Charcuterie platter, calamari and more. Then the dinner menu starts at 5 featuring dishes like homemade lasagna, Mussels with mixed bean ragu or honey glazed duck and much more. The bakery is killing it and we can hardly keep our display case in stock. All still 100% GF. Downtown has arrived in Manitou.

Also, note new store hours: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (closed Tuesdays); Friday, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

And note a new daily happy hour from 3:30 to 5 p.m., with $8 plates from the bar/appetizer menu.

Here's a couple teaser photos of new plates:
