There are countless companies that offer mass-produced, shelf-stable bakery items filled with conditioners and stabilizers that can be shipped around the country and that appear in coffee shops and grocery stores nationwide. There are but a few local companies that offer small-batch, made from scratch, hand-made baked goods that contain no artificial flavors or preservatives–food that you can feel good about eating. I d’Eclair! Pastry is proud to provide that service for our friends and neighbors in Fort Collins, Loveland, and the Front Range area. In a world where seemingly everything is becoming large scale and mechanized, we believe people deserve to nourish their bodies and hearts with food that is made by hand with great care, by people who do this for the love of it and not simply for a paycheck.
Many of the city’s landmark restaurants, coziest coffee and tea shops, and premier medical facilities feature our desserts and baked goods. Find our treats at the Moot House, Sonny Lubick Steakhouse, Taste and Savor Wine Bar, Mugs Coffeehouse, Harbinger Coffee, Ku Cha House of Tea, Medical Center of the Rockies, and Harmony Cafe.
We can be booked for private events, too, so please consider inviting us to your wedding, holiday party, or other event! Pastry chef Elizabeth Meyers is also available for private in-home cooking and baking lessons. Why not get a group of friends together and learn how to bake a perfect pie or assemble a healthy and delicious vegetarian meal? Or maybe you need a hand planning and hosting a holiday gathering in your home. We can help! Just give us a call: 970.556.3910, or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission and philosophy
At I d’Eclair! Pastry, we believe food provides more than just nourishment for our bodies – it feeds our mental well-being and fosters our connections to other people and to the land. We want you to feel good about what you’re eating, and we want to play a role in the success of our local food economy. That’s why we feature ingredients from Colorado farms and support other producers and businesses along the Front Range and Western Slope.

I love food. Eating it, growing it, cooking with it, and sharing it with others. I could while away the afternoon thinking about how to make the best use of a basket of red and gold raspberries or reflecting on the attributes of a perfect macaron. Rolling and shaping pastry dough is therapeutic, and my nightstand is more likely to hold the latest issue of Cooks Illustrated than the current bestselling novel. I’m thrilled to be able to share my passion for food and baking with you through I d’Eclair! Pastry.

I guess you could say I’m a man who wears many hats. Unsatisfied with the daily grind of life as a real estate attorney, I decided to pursue my creative and artistic side by building my own landscaping company. While satisfying, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a bakery on wheels – the artistry, craftsmanship, and engineering challenges involved in building the one-of-a-kind I d’Eclair! Pastry mobile cart were thrilling! Now that the cart is a reality, you are likely to find me at our bakery, ensuring everything is running smoothly so our small staff of bakers can continue to provide you with made-from-the-heart treats you will feel good about eating.
