This was a delightful little on-mountain cafeteria. Never having been here before, I was surprised by the food offerings including sliced cakes, wines, and even my childhood comfort food of Vietnamese pho (soup)!

Good food and plenty of tables.Kids always preferred coming here for lunch. Hot soups always the best in the winter.

Great number of choices and such a friendly group of employees - excellent service. Great view. Easy to navigate. Overpriced but most ski lunch spots are in Aspen so no different. Return year after year. Service makes difference here.

At the top of the highlands ski lift this place is a welcome center for everyone. Stop by and have a meal and or a beer and relax. I had the Fish tacos and they were amazing!

She complimented my choice, offered scallions, sour cream and crackers and then wished me a great day. Oh, and the soup was fantastic! The Sweet Potato Dill and the... More

I was fortunate to meet to manager Barry, great gut with a keen sense of detail in every aspect of the... More
