Great place to get your cappuccino with a nice banana chocolate chip muffin (warning: meal sized..), but also recommendable for some scoops of delicious ice cream. Conviently located on a small square in 'downtown' Aspen with some benches to enjoy the goodies in the sunshine.

The ice cream is superb and the staff most friendly. This is clearly an Aspen landmark. What is most remarkable is the owners' salesmanship: they have talented musicians playing just outside their shop drawing customers with discerning taste. And to add to the draw that helps you forget the inflated prices, each customer receives a "free" cookie on the top of his cup or cone. Kudos to their salesmanship.

This place is the best shop we have found while in Aspen! We have gone every day of our trip. The mandarin orange muffins are the best thing ever created.

Went here after our dinner for some ice cream. Super crowded but the employees there were more than helpful. Aspen downtown at night is where it happens.

Though we did not try the cookies, I was thoroughly disappointed with the pumpkin nut muffin I ordered for breakfast. The muffin did not have a single nut in it. Not sure how a bakery can advertise nuts when none are included. The muffin was coated with a sugary cinnamon topping. I was hoping for nuts.
I should have returned to the bakery to complain and perhaps get a refund, but I chickened out. Perhaps the owners of Paradise Bakery will read this review and remedy the problem. (By the way, my husband's banana nut muffin did indeed include nuts.)
