My husband and I ate here on Saturday for lunch and it was fantastic. I think the wait was a little long, but it's fun to people watch in Aspen and just relax. I ordered a steak tip sandwich and it was SO GOOD! I would highly recommend it. My husband had the Reuben, and it was excellent, as well.... More

It used to have a different feel and seemed unique but now seems crowded and less fresh. Burritos are pre-made and less of a country kitchen feel. I will probably look for a better breakfast option next time we are back. Lunch used to be interesting so we will give that a go again but breakfast nothing special to be... More

It was already busy, but more... More

We were here for breakfast. They have a variety of options, and the items we had were very good. (oatmeal and a breakfast sandwich) It was a bit confusing what to do when you go in.

Loved this place! Creative and efficient...and most importantly delicious! The scramble was awesome and the croissant flaky and yummy. Service was unusually friendly and this completely made the atmosphere for me. There was a happy line but it moved along. You order your food up front and then it gets delivered to you. The restaurant was open and sunny. The... More

Came here and the service was good along with the food. There is also an option to sit outside when the weather is nice as well. Just remember to pick up your dishes at the end of the meal. ;)

Thoroughly enjoyed the turkey sandwich. They have great food that's fresh and healthy. Great selection and some pretty wonderful mixed drinks available as well.
