I absolutely love the Creperie!
As a pretty relaxed local, I love eating good food and wine without having the pretentiousness often found in both the prices and ambiance in Aspen restaurants. This place has great atmosphere, good prices, awesome fresh food and eclectic, worldly locals. Go here!

We ordered the big apple, made in heaven and the magic mushroom crepes. A week has gone by and we are still craving them!

You can't judge a book by its cover. This place is so cute, and we love crepes, so we finally gave it a try. I'm sorry to say we disliked the food. The service was good, the crepes were bland and the iced tea was horrible. We left most of our food on our plates. I'm not sure about all the great reviews here. Maybe we hit it on a bad day?

This place has the cozy, comfortable, lived-in feel that puts off welcome vibe and invites one to hang out for hours. The food here (not just crepes) is fantastic. If you're feeling super hungry, go for the Croque Madame, an open-faced jamon sandwich topped with a fried egg that doesn't dissappoint in both portion and flavor... holy cow it's awesome. There's also tons of crepes to choose from on both the sweet and savory side as well as a good list of wines and beers by the glass. This is certainly going to become a regular haunt for me haha...

a couple of young entrepreneurs have created a niche serving some classic european mountain town food in a really hip place. Among a town with great restaurants the Creperie stands alone: A ˝must˝ when visiting Aspen.
