We enjoyed a nice lunch here. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Can't wait to go back in the summer time when they have outdoor seating. Creperie du Village is a wonderful addition to Aspen's restaurant scene.

Thank you for your great rating and for taking the time to write a review.
We have a $110 bottle of Swiss Fendant on the wine list, which is the perfect pairing for Raclette and Cheese Fondue and pairs well with many other dishes. It is very hard to come by and we are proud to have it available for our guests. If the charge was less on the first visit then the sever had clearly made a mistake. We truly apologize.and hope it will not deter you from paying us another visit!

My husband & I were looking around for a place to eat & stumbled upon this gem. The owner, who is French, actually came up to us and told us about their specials and really welcomed us to join him! We went back with our sons (ages 17 & 20) and had quite the feast! First, the atmosphere is beyond expectations. A cozy, warm location where you are surrounded by pillows and warmth. Escargot-FANTASTIC! French Onion Soup-FANTASTIC! The Fondue & Racelette were fun and more than four can eat (ordered for two each and could not finish). I had a nice French Syrah too. Don't forget to try the truffle toasted almonds! This is a "must-go" experience in Aspen. You have to meet the owner & the help. Corey our waiter was amazingly friendly. I cannot wait to return.

I've eaten here several times and loved it each time. The French onion soup is the best I've ever had, the crepes are amazing. Atmosphere is quaint and rustic.

My husband and I had a coffee at the Creperie this morning and we loved the ambiance so much that we decided to go back for lunch. We shared a savory crepe and a sweet crepe. Unfortunately, we were not thrilled by the food. The savory crepe had not enough filling in my opinion, and the sweet crepe was a bit bland. I also disliked the fact that the whipped cream was not real cream. I am European so I am very familiar with crepes, and I am sorry to say that I've had much better. Besides, the Glühwein was served to me at room temperature, which I thought was very odd. I would definitely go back for the ambiance though.

We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the great ambience we provide!
We like to point out though that we make fresh whipped cream every morning - it is the real deal! And yes, Glühwein needs to be served hot and we sincerely apologize that that was not the case when it was served to you. We hope you will give us another try on your next visit so we can make up for it. Our customers generally comment on our generously sized crepes and we would love for you to have the same experience!
