Voted the #1 Bakery and Best Sandwiches in the desert by Desert Magazine

There is a new bakery in town and lucky us, it's right by our office! It's in the old LQ Wine shop right next to My Thai and across the parking lot from our office.

A family owned business, La Quinta, is the newest location added in the Coachella Valley. They’ve owned and operated 3 other Aspen Mills locations in the desert for over 20 years. Other locations are in Palm Springs, one inside the Rancho Mirage Library & Clarke’s Nutrition in Palm Desert.  They have gluten free & veggie friendly options. They bake their bread fresh every day and they have over 30 varieties throughout the week to choose from. They pride themselves on no additives, processed sugars, artificial flavors or preservatives. They are one of the few bakeries that operate this way.  They also offer made fresh daily, in-house, potato & tuna salad. Some of the special salads are Mediterranean, Mirage, and Mandarin Chicken.

My team is fans of the Aspen, which is tender oven-roasted, low-salt, turkey breast, cucumbers, red onions, lettuce, mayo, horseradish & guacamole on Cranberry Spice bread. It also happens to be their number one, best seller.

The Tuscany is another team favorite and consists of an eight-inch baguette, topped with Prosciutto, Capacolla, honey-glazed ham, provolone, pepperoncinis, tomatoes, red onions, roasted bell peppers, fresh basil, fresh cilantro, lettuce, and Italian dressing. It's big enough to share.

I personally can vouch for their brownies and muffins!
