The best cookies!

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!

Great cookies and drinks to warm you up when shopping in the snow! Kids loved it and we did too. Always long lines but truly worth the wait.

The Paradise is great! Great breakfast selections, great bakery. It's very popular, so there could be waits or seating at communal table. No more need be said

I have been there numerous times and it's always the same which is favorable. It's fresh pastry and warm drinks.

The Paradise Bakery is located right in the center of downtown Aspen. This is a smaller than normal location. We had coffee and a couple of sweets. The brownie was huge and we nibbled on it for a few days.

Can't go wrong here. They always have a line out the door, but it goes very quick. Love the little cookie they put on your ice cream. It's a tease to go back for a large one!
