Rare to make a drive north for anything other than Metro Pizza or Lulu’s Bread & Breakfast it was once again on Saturday morning that the day’s first meal was served by Chris Decker, discussion about Food and travel filling the time between bites of several new or upcoming items.
Now delighting guests for over five years at 6720 Skypointe Drive, a twenty minute drive to Centennial the only reason visits to Lulu’s do not happen with more frequency, it was immediately on entry that the familiar voice of a woman present at every visit since October 2013 chimed “Hey Baby, how you doing?,” a cup of good Coffee quickly poured from the fill-your-own station and Chef Decker soon emerging with two sugar-coated Brioche Donuts – one piped full of tangy Strawberry-Lemonade Custard and the other with Chocolate-studded Cannoli Cream.
Impressed but not surprised by the fried Dough, similarities to the quality seen at Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in terms of texture unavoidable and appropriate, it was not long after both Bombolini were finished that a hefty plate of French Toast ready to be offered on Father’s Day was presented, Decker’s Bread Pudding-style “Fat Elvis” recently spotlighted on national television further upgraded by Chocolate, Graham Crackers and toasted Marshmallows with reference to campground favorite S’mores.
Never foolish enough to turn down Pizza from someone so skilled in the art, all Metro locations visited performing well but real magic occurring when Decker or John Arena are stretching and topping the Dough, it was with one of Lulu’s light and fluffy Danishes packed for later that something Chris is working on for an upcoming competition was served, the Crust slightly thicker than Grandma-style crisp but still offering a good chew well complimented by two styles of Cheese, house Sausage and roasted Peppers plus Potatoes.
N/A: Not really ‘reviewing’ but instead given a chance to offer feedback on a few ideas the only thing to be said is that the Lulu’s/Metro complex is better now than ever before…and perhaps that the Pizza’s mouthfeel is better off without Onions.
TIP: The Fat Elvis goes Camping will be offered this weekend and Doughnuts are already offered, though Chef Decker claims over a hundred types of filling are in the works for a weekly rotation coming soon.
