I saw an article on this place in one of Aspen's local publications, and got really excited. I mean, an entire menu of crepes, what's not to love?! So, we decided to travel from where we live in NewCastle(appx. an hour away) with some friends that were visiting, to spend the day in Aspen and have some crepes for brunch. When we walked in, we felt the immediate charm of the French countryside-style decor, and were seated in a cute little table tucked into a windowed corner. My husband and I were quickly blinded by the afternoon sun coming through the window that had no way to offer shade. When we were visibly showing discomfort and even brought it to our waitresses attention, the problem was not addressed, even though there were a few other tables open around the restaurant. So, we put on our sunglasses and ordered. When I asked for a bloody mary, the waitress looked at me like I was crazy, and said, " I don't think we make those, but I'll check". I sat there kind of puzzled as to why a place that offers brunch style fare doesn't serve bloody marys, let alone offer spectacular ones. I also noticed the place on the menu that read "full service bar". Huh? Needless to say, I got one that was ok, for $10, but whatever, that's not why I was there. The crepe selection was fabulous, however, once on the plate, not so much. I know it's Aspen prices, but there was very little filling whatsoever inside all of our crepes, and the price range was around $10-$14 if I remember correctly. Needless to say, I was still hungry, and was really interested in ordering some fondue to share with my group. The waitress was trying to change shifts, and cashed us out before we were even finished, promising another would be by to take care of us. Well that never happened, and we never got to order the fondue. Kinda lame! I really feel like this place could have something unique to offer if they just cared a little more.
