“good breakfast and lunch place near ACES in Aspen”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stopped by the Upper Crust in Aspen (the owners have another location in Basalt, CO) for lunch after a morning birdwatching tour in the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES). There was another bagel shop in this space years ago - I wish the current owners more success!
They offer bagels with all kinds of toppings; i chose the chorizo breakfast burrito which was excellent and not too hot for my wimpy palate. my companion had the egg+lox bagel sandwich which as also excellent. I was amused to read a review on another website that described the cafe as "food made by two surly gentlemen who act like they're doing you a favor". This is a basically a deli, run by longtime Aspen folks originally from the east coast - brusque lack of obsequiousness and cracking wise are an essential part of the culture, so i imagine visitors with a limited sense of humor may not get full enjoyment of the cuisine.
