Great ice cream and bakery. Probably one of the best chocolate chip cookies I have had. Always had a line but worth it.

Really superb, light, flaky, fresh croissants of all types. They ran out early, though, so we couldn't try some of the ones we wanted. Coffee was excellent, too. Crowded with a long line, so you know it's popular with the locals, too.

This is the place to enjoy your coffee and pastries. Always taste great.You can always expect to wait in a line but it's worth it.

Two couples visiting Aspen, CO. A downtown institution - Paradise Bakery. I had a small Gelato each time for two visits - which is hand served in the specific size container that you purchase. Wonderful taste! Highly recommend!

Tried Paradise Bakery and Cafe when we were in town for a meeting last year. We had breakfast that time, spectacular muffins (Mandarin orange and raspberry bran) with lattes. This time we tried cappuccinos and the same muffins, and they fully did justice to our...More

At night, Paradise is known for their ice cream. The line extends out the door for hours, but the wait is only about 10 minutes. They have a nice variety of ice creams and sorbets. Prices are reasonable, particularly for Aspen. At night, individuals from...More

We went to this bakery expressly to have the Fudge Brownie. It lived up to expectations. We went back another day and I had the fudge brownie again but others in the group tried other options. Everyone pretty much liked their selections. I can't say...More

Thank you for your review and your kind words! For next time, I recommend a scoop of mint chocolate flake on top of that slightly warm fudge brownie! It's the perfect dessert!
