Coquette's Bistro and Bakery, famous for its completely gluten-free menu, has moved downtown, 321 N. Tejon St., into a much larger space than its previous Manitou Springs location.

The owners have not turned their backs on their faithful west side customers, though, and are opening Coquette's Bake House, 919 Manitou Ave. on Saturday.

The hut-style shop will sell many of their popular gluten-free items like cupcakes and cakes, as well as frozen products like breads, lasagna and pot pies. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
