Who makes the best King Cake in the Denver area?

It’s a tradition in our family to indulge in a traditional King Cake as we approach Lent.

One of the best we’ve found in the Denver area is from Rheinlander Bakery in Arvada.

Rheinlander is a family business owned by Loren and Luke Naftz. The bakery was previously owned by Ed and Maro Dimmer, second generation owners of the bakery and when they retired they passed it to Loren and Luke. Loren has a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from Johnson and Wales University.

Rheinlander offers 7 variations of the King Cake:  Traditional, Almond, Cinnamon, Cream Cheese, Strawberry Cream Cheese, Blueberry Lemon, and Lemon Poppyseed.
