Katherine's French Bakery
& Cafe
Where good taste is always in style!


Chef Mario Arrua has over 23 years of experience in the hospitality, food and beverage, and cheffing arenas. Originally hailing from Argentina, Mario comes to Denver by way of Miami, a culinary mecca.  His style is simple and straightforward...but his presentation is always elegant.   His menu reflects a taste for well-prepared and properly seasoned food.  


Chef Katherine Keeley Pappas apprenticed to a master French baker and travelled to Martigues, France where she worked in a Provençal patisserie-boulangerie under the tutelage of Algerian, Spanish and French chefs.  Her clients often say that her pastries, cakes and cookies remind them of the French pastries they have tasted around the world...whether in Paris or Tokyo or Berlin...those beautiful forms of food art that are not overly sweet but full of flavor.

Our youngest staff member...la petite chef:

Nathalie Marie Arrua

She's a 6th grader and fluent in two languages (Spanish and English).

She is super-helpful in both the savory and pastry kichens and is now learning to work the POS (cash register) system and work the counter.
