I was absolutely amazed by the food quality of this little restaurant. I have lived in San Francisco so I'm extremely picky about Asian food, but this place is one of the best I've visited. A creative, delicious, fresh menu. Everything was amazing.

I love to bring friends to this little cafe with the surprise of such a great menu of healthy good food! All my vegan, gluten-free buddies love it as do I. The chef comes out and makes it personal. Small, right on Elk Ave. A great spot to eat in-between shopping, enjoying all the galleries, people watching..... and easy on... More

We feasted on a variety of Asian fusion dishes. We also really like the ginger infused drinks. The hand crafted mixed drinks [with and without alcohol] were my favorites! The restaurant is small. Make sure you get a reservation!

We ate here due to several recommendations. The food was the best thai I have had in Colorado - hands down. Bright, fresh with half the price it would cost in Aspen. The Ginger Martini was amazing.. not too sweet. Wish they'd open a location in Co Springs.

Walked in not really expecting Thai food but what a pleasant surprise. Sat by a window watching people walking by and had a wonderful dinner. We had lamb gomba and green curry. Both were excellent. Not much on really hot food so this fit the bill for us. Nice surprise.

My wife and I stopped in here because I wanted a cup of coffee and she saw the word cafe and thought they would have coffee. They did have coffee, but to our surprise had a menu of Thai fusion food. We decided to get a few appetizers on top of the coffee and we were very pleased with what... More

We come to Crested Butte every year, and we always take at least one meal at Ginger Cafe. Their flavors are imaginative, they have gluten-free options, the wine selection is excellent, and the service is always friendly.

I'm a little disappointed this time. Not sure what changed. We are returned customer and used to like their food. Pad Thai is really plain no taste as it should more on sweet side. Sorry if I'm critical since I'm Thai and I used to eat here and it was way way better. Indian curry I have also on a... More

What a great place. We first stopped in for Lunch and then had to go back for dinner. The outdoor seating is very pleasant, and indoors is too. Service was awesome, even when the lunch crowd was big.

Great food with options for minimal grains. It is small but cozy. Was pretty warm for summer but windows were open.
