Yummy start to the morning

We enjoyed very good large latte and cappuccinos with a variety of baked goods- just the right balance of sweet & savory. Try almond croissant, raspberry muffins & the quiche muffins. Crisp morning warmup and easy stroll.

Get the cookies. They're amazing. Just the right amount of gooey. Or eat all the free samples while standing in line. Can't go wrong.

My husband and I came here for a craving for ice cream. Place is very small, but the employees were nice. There was a line out the door to get treats when we pulled up around 9pm. The ice cream was good and satisfied our craving.

This is not a local hang out. The baked goods are not up to par. Think Hostest. Bad vibe and crowded doesn't make sense why??

We stopped based on the amazing ice cream reviews and found it flavorless, icy and not worth it! I actually threw mine out. The desserts looked great- but don't get ice cream!

The muffins and quiche are good, the price is right also. More consistency by their baristas than some of their neighbors. A good place to stop on your way to something, I'm meeting someone there this morning in fact.

We always stop at Paradise Bakery for cookies when we’re in downtown Aspen. They’re the best! The other baked goods are pretty good too, particularly the muffins. Plus the service is friendly.

This bakery is definitely a must try if you are spending the day in aspen. The brownies are truly divine, and my children love the Ajax cookies. (White and dark chocolate bits in a chocolate cookie) Try going mid afternoon for shorter lines, but they may have less selection by then, and get a box to last you a few... More

Looking for a cup of coffee and a little breakfast and was referred here for such. Had a chance to stand in line, asked counter person for the chance to take my order. Ordered coffee. Never got the coffee order and upon my query, found the pot empty. Must be so special, they pot stays empty!
