I love this restaurant and keep coming back. It's a very charming and small restaurant with amazing food. The fondue is amazing, as are the crepes. If you are in Aspen put this on the top of your restaurant to do list!

If you're looking for that European Ski Town vibe and Romantic French Restaurant to spend a cozy lunchtime on a snowy day, this is perfect. Great crepes - savory or sweet, and great Coffee too.
