Quick and Tasty Eats!

Tasty muffins, quick service. Best thing on the menu is the quiche, in several flavors and in an easy-to-eat mini-muffin format.

Don't be turned off by some of the rude shop keepers in Aspen. Once you walk in Paradise you'll be back in the CO hospitality. Wonderful coffee and warm pastries. Very nice, quick but not rushed and the cookies are so good!

As a European that's used to having bakeries like this on almost every corner, this place was a great sight. Coffee is OK, the ice cream is meh, but the freshly baked pastries and the like are excellent. Can be crowded at times, especially in the morning, but the staff is quite good and keep the line moving quickly.

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. We only tried the ice cream so I can’t speak to the quality of the other items. It wasn’t the best I had ever tasted, but... More

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.

We stopped here after dinner to have something sweet, and had a hard time deciding between all the options
