Shortly after I posted this yesterday, Coquette's announced a new promotion at the downtown store that's worth noting, in support of the arts locally.
Here it is, in their words:
Bring in your ticket stub the night you've attended a cultural event in Colorado Springs at the FAC, Pikes Peak Center, a CC event, GOCA or the World Arena and we'll give you 10% off your Desserts or Appetizers. We have a great late-night app's menu or you can choose from a full dinner menu. Pick out goodies from our bakery case or order sweets from the kitchen. Cocktail specials will be created each night. Our late night world is your oyster. Open most nights till 10 PM but open until midnight on Friday + Saturday until midnight.

As the gluten-free community is well aware, Coquette's Bistro & Bakery
opened early last month at its new location downtown
It's former location, as we told you in last week's Side Dish, is turning into Suzy Q's BBQ
And now, as hinted at back in December
by co-owner Michelle Marx, Coquette's is turning the historic tuberculosis huts at 919 Manitou Ave., next door to the main eatery at 915 Manitou Ave., into a mini retail marketplace called Coquette's Bake House
The business (651-3892) will open this Saturday, in time for Mother's Day gifting, then keep Thursday through Saturday hours (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) moving forward for the time being, says Marx.
It will not serve food, but instead will serve as an extension of the retail market in the downtown space, essentially — and keep a foothold in Manitou for its loyal customers there.
Guests will be able to purchase Coquette's lauded cupcakes, plus cakes, breads and take-and-bake frozen items such as lasagnas and pot pies — all, of course, gluten-free.

Pretty cupcakes are but one of Coquette's draws.
