Best of New England, NH 2011: Bakery
Le Rendez Vous
121 Main St.
Colebrook, New Hampshire 03576
French native Verlaine Daeron opened this bakery in 2001 in a most unlikely location: Rural, blue-collar Colebrook was no food-lover’s mecca. But this northernmost town embraced her baguettes and boules, croissants and madeleines — so much so that when the U.S. government refused to renew her visa, the town rallied to keep their beloved boulangerie alive. Just sample the goods at Rendez Vous and you’ll understand why.
