We drive to Franck Thirion weekly just to have their unbelievable pastries. It's a bit of a trek but worth every bite!

This is the best place in all of Aspen for lunch! The sandwiches are all well-thought and delicious! The soups are awesome! Caesar salad is not matched anywhere in the valley in terms of quality! .. and quite honestly I have not had better 'French pastries' anywhere outside of France! This is worth the trip ... and the free parking... More

This place has the best chocolate croissant that I have had - ever and excellent cafe´. Great people, very friendly and fun. Excellent outdoor seating, quiet parking lot. Excellent for catering as well. As my wife said, "the coffee from the urn tasted good!" They have other food than pastries, but why be healthy?

I have been a regular since we moved to the area in 2011. It's the best value for money in the valley...by a mile!! The croissants and pain au chocolat are on a par with anything in France. These are serious owners who are serious about the quality of food they serve. Breakfast and lunch--no dinner. I crave the French... More

Stopped in for lunch-had the chicken tortilla soup while my husband had the chicken panini. The soup was very good and my husband said it was the best panini he ever had. I also had a raspberry tart that was divine. NOTE: The location in downtown Aspen is no longer open.

I really love this quaint French restaurant. The owner/operator is from France and it shows in the pastries and coffee. My favorite pastry is the almond croissant. The items are reasonably priced and all delicious. Their coffee invokes the taste of European coffee - delish! It is very small, but does have outdoor seating. I would highly recommend getting there... More

Consistent quality in everything he does. His two locations each offer something special. Aspen is hardly ever crowded, it's beautiful wall painting, great coffee and pastries, and friendly staff and comfortable seating. The ABC location has great soup for lunch in a modest setting. His seasonal french specialties are as good as you'd find in France but his success IMHO... More
