I was lucky enough to have dinner on one of the outdoor tables with couches for seats. It was perfect for people watching and scenic views! The crepes were amazing: even better than the ones I tried in Paris! The atmosphere was great and decorated adorably and the service was spectacular! I recommend the Big Apple crepe!

After 3 days in Aspen, having tried a few other nice restaurants, we stumbled onto this place and loved it. Great ambience, great food, great service (Heather was very attentive and pleasant). Favorite find. We tried the BLT with prosciutto in a toasted French baguette, the curry chicken crêpe, with coconut milk and the most tender chicken, the arugula salad and Big Apple crêpe, which was absolutely off the charts. Highly recommend it.

A lovely restaurant in the heart of Aspen. Highly recommended by other chefs whom I had encountered. I chose the special of the day (Veal cheeks in a cognac.cherry sauce,) and an interestingly orepared heirloom tomato salad tomatoes and watermelon diced with a gentle balsamic dressing - tasty!) A terrific wine list enhances the menu. Choice selection from both France and California (7 Deadly Sins from Livermore is an example, Whispering Angel Rose etc.)
Owner Rafael makes everyone feel welcome. Though known for crepes and popular with a young crowd, I suggest chosing the specials. Atmosphere and service make it a wonderful Aspen choice. It feels like many of the Southern French restaurants I love.

This place is known for crepes, of course, but they do them in their own unique way. It was one of the freshest, tastiest meals I've had in a while. We went for lunch, but I can't wait to come back here in the future for decadent dinners with friends and many glasses of wine.

Wonderful crepes in an unexpectedly rustic ambiance. From savory to sweet, you can't go wrong with any of the crepes. It's a great place for an apres ski snack or a late night dessert.
