“Couldn't stay away-delicious!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

I had fun practicing my French with the owner. The food was delicious, I think my husband and I enjoyed it more than the kids. Only complaint was the young women who was there when the owner wasn't. She was what tries to avoid while in Aspen; snobby and "couldn't care less attitude".

“Fantastic Food and Drink!”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

I have been going here for a few years, and it is always fantastic. The French man who runs the restaurant is a great owner operator who creates great food and drinks consitantly. Please note, this is not fast food, but fairly quick, which is much better in my opinion. Try the breakfast burrito, the cappucino, the Mycah bagel, the salads, it's all fantastic. You can't go wrong stopping here for a breakfast or quick lunch!

“Overrated”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

The fact that this deli-style eatery ranks in the top 10 of Aspen restaurants points out the weakness in allowing a place with only 6 votes to outrank other places with a better sample size. The owner is indeed French, but his pastries are pretty bad. Yes, a croissant here is better than at Costco or Starbucks but that's not much of a standard. It bears no resemblance to anything you'd find in Europe. There is another shop in town that is actually a patisserie, Frank Thirion, if you're looking for something French. This place is best for breakfast burritos, salads, etc.

Hi James, it's been almost 5 years since you posted this and a lot has changed over here at Jour De Fete! Not only do we have an updated menu, but we have completely rebranded. The community atmosphere is inviting and we really think you'll like it. Hopefully you get a chance to come see us again soon. We'll make it up to you!
