There are a few good bakeries in Tucson, and this one is definitely the cream of the crop of French bakeries…

La Baguette Parisienne has been in business enough years that it is a sure bet. When you crave for French bread and pastries, go there: you won’t regret the trip to Broadway and Pantano. The bakery is located in the mall on the NW corner, to the immediate left of Sprouts. It hides in the recess of an overhang, look for their sign.

With a 4.8-star rating in Google Maps, there is little doubt that this baker has served the community well. Let me just say that it is not your usual Beyond Bread bakery. I have nothing against Beyond Bread, but I do prefer the French flavor of the croissants and countryside bread served by La Baguette Parisienne.

Of particular note: Their “croissants au beurre” are delish. Their “pains au chocolat” (croissants filled with a bar of soft dark chocolate) too. If you are looking for a less refined bread than the traditional French baguette, go for their countryside bread (“pains de campagne”).

Their staff is efficient and courteous. I shopped there during busy hours, no one lost their cool and clients were looking happy. Prices are in a range comparable to Beyond Bread and other bakers.
