When visiting Aspen, we had a craving for ice cream. Luckily, the Paradise Café had exactly what we needed. They had plenty of choices for every taste and also offered a variety of pastries.

I have had to change to a gluten free diet. Their gluten free muffins and goods are unbelievable. They are the best I have eaten. Moist, tender, wonderful flavors. They are baked there. Fresh and delicious.

As a bakery, they have a wide selection of excellent baked goods. As a breakfast cafe, they're about average with all the other places in town that serve breakfast.

Local version of a Panera Bread. The sandwiches and baked goods were good and fresh. Prices are on par as to what Panera Bread charges.

I love this place. Wide variety of mouthwatering muffins. All of them are excellent. If you are in Aspen, skip Starbucks and go to Paradise Bakery for coffee and a muffin. You won't regret it!

In Arizona, Paradise Bakeries serve sandwiches, soups and salads. Not in Aspen. Instead, in Aspen, Paradise Bakery serves excellent gelato. The gelato was wonderful!
