Hands down the best bakery in the area. The pastries, muffins and breakfast sandwiches are freshly made. Lines are out the door for a reason.

long line means yummy ice cream. It was a warm afternoon so we followed the scent of fresh baked cookies and enjoyed ice cream and a cookie surrounded by beautiful park setting.

Thank you for your review and your kind words! Nothing beats the warm afternoons better than a homemade gelato and a fresh-squeezed lemonade! We have an all natural strawberry lemonade that I highly recommend! Looking forward to your next visit!

One gets skeptical of bad restaurants passing off for good in a pricey town as this. And then the constant line outside this bakery at 10 PM. But boy, is that pistachio gelato worth it. Its the best we've had, and we were in Italy...More

Thank you for your review and your kind words! We are happy you liked our gelato flavors! The pistachio is amazing and in my opinion if you combine it with the chocolate it's an out of this world combo! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Whilst nowhere near the standard of Aussie coffee, it is probably the best in Aspen? The croissants are good too, if somewhat large. The queues are testimony to its popularity and we went all 3 mornings whilst in Aspen. Get an early morning walk in...More

Staying at a hotel near the Paradise Bakery was dangerous for the waistline. We ate breakfast there daily. Even though they share a name with a chain found in other parts of the country, this place is not the same and is much better.More

I consider myself a chocolate chip cookie snob! These are by far the best cookies ever! Crunchy and soft. My husband and I made a point to grab dessert there each night while visiting Aspen. The staff were apparently local teens and very friendly!! The...More

The best thing about this iconic ice cream store is that they offer free samples of there excellent cookies and unlimited tastes of their delicious ice cream. It isn't cheap and the variety isn't exceptional.
