Pit stopped a couple times during my visit to Aspen. First time was for the gelato which I got the butter pecan and didn't like much. Off flavor, but went back for their lemon poppy seed muffin after sampling the first trip. I'd go back...More

Tried Paradise Bakery and Cafe when we were in town for a meeting last year. We had breakfast that time, spectacular muffins (Mandarin orange and raspberry bran) with lattes. This time we tried cappuccinos and the same muffins, and they fully did justice to our...More

At night, Paradise is known for their ice cream. The line extends out the door for hours, but the wait is only about 10 minutes. They have a nice variety of ice creams and sorbets. Prices are reasonable, particularly for Aspen. At night, individuals from...More

We went to this bakery expressly to have the Fudge Brownie. It lived up to expectations. We went back another day and I had the fudge brownie again but others in the group tried other options. Everyone pretty much liked their selections. I can't say...More

We went to this ice cream shop two times while we were in Aspen. After you order your ice cream, both nights had some local kids playing violins, flutes and clarinets right outside the ice cream shop. It made for a fun atmosphere and people...More

While the bakery is very good and the lines are very long (even in the summer) there are no table and chairs available anywhere

This bakery can be a little crowded during peak hours, but is worth the wait for the interesting diversity of tastes in their muffins ... from savory to classical blueberry and more.

Thank you for your review and your kind words! Our muffins are amazing, so are the cookies in 10+1 flavors! Have you tried the oatmeal chocolate chip chippers fresh out of the oven? Oh mine, they're to die for!

OK, great cookies but the place was a zoo on Saturday 7/1, holiday weekend. (Downtown shop) It would do them well to create a better flow for ordering. It was hard to hear the workers and because of the crowd, it wasn’t that fun trying...More

This is a fun stop while you are downtown. The staff is very friendly and the samples generous. The ice cream is very pricey at $4.50 for a small scoop.More
