The wonderful smell of freshly baked chocolate croissants drifting out the door early in the morning is so enticing and the melt in your mouth flavour meets all expectations! The pastries are fabulous, the salads and sandwiches are also delicious. Marilyn and Frank work hard to keep their customers coming back! Frank Thirion is definitely a place not to be... More

So dedicated to quality his father joined him from France before the holidays to help him by adding an additional lifetime of experience as a French baker.

Hidden in airport business center this bakery is a must visit! The husband/ wife team run the bakery and are wonderful! Everything is fresh and delicious. We love visiting every time we are in Aspen.

Ooo-la-la. Everything we have ordered has been excellent. Marilyn has the knack, the gift, the taste buds and the passion. And it shows in her restaurant. We are fans of bread and French pastries. This little cafe delivers delicious French food and bread. It seems to be an Aspen quiet-little-secret all tight-lipped Aspenites waiting in line for their baguettes expect... More

Just a small little place out at the AABC. Not a lot of room for many people. Place is busy and the food is always really good. I love going here for lunch. Really good soups. Chicken tortilla is fantastic. Green Chili is great. Sandwiches and salads are super too!

This is the best place in all of Aspen for lunch! The sandwiches are all well-thought and delicious! The soups are awesome! Caesar salad is not matched anywhere in the valley in terms of quality! .. and quite honestly I have not had better 'French pastries' anywhere outside of France! This is worth the trip ... and the free parking... More
