While the bakery is very good and the lines are very long (even in the summer) there are no table and chairs available anywhere

Thank you for your review and your feedback! Yes, unfortunately we don't have the space for a sit-down cafe. The good news is there are plenty of chairs and benches outside perfect for people watching and enjoying the view of Aspen Mountain!

I enjoyed the gluten free lemon poppy seed muffin and gluten free chocolate chip cookie. It was a Saturday night so the line was crazy and the ordering process was a bit chaotic. But the treats were yummy and it was neat to be serenaded...More

Thank you for your review and your feedback! We are looking forward to your next visit! Try the morning glory muffin next time, it's gluten-free and dairy-free option with carrots, raisins, apples, almonds, coconut and a touch of magic!

This bakery can be a little crowded during peak hours, but is worth the wait for the interesting diversity of tastes in their muffins ... from savory to classical blueberry and more.

Thank you for your review and your kind words! Our muffins are amazing, so are the cookies in 10+1 flavors! Have you tried the oatmeal chocolate chip chippers fresh out of the oven? Oh mine, they're to die for!

OK, great cookies but the place was a zoo on Saturday 7/1, holiday weekend. (Downtown shop) It would do them well to create a better flow for ordering. It was hard to hear the workers and because of the crowd, it wasn’t that fun trying...More

This is a fun stop while you are downtown. The staff is very friendly and the samples generous. The ice cream is very pricey at $4.50 for a small scoop.More

Hands down the best bakery in the area. The pastries, muffins and breakfast sandwiches are freshly made. Lines are out the door for a reason.

long line means yummy ice cream. It was a warm afternoon so we followed the scent of fresh baked cookies and enjoyed ice cream and a cookie surrounded by beautiful park setting.

Thank you for your review and your kind words! Nothing beats the warm afternoons better than a homemade gelato and a fresh-squeezed lemonade! We have an all natural strawberry lemonade that I highly recommend! Looking forward to your next visit!

One gets skeptical of bad restaurants passing off for good in a pricey town as this. And then the constant line outside this bakery at 10 PM. But boy, is that pistachio gelato worth it. Its the best we've had, and we were in Italy...More

Thank you for your review and your kind words! We are happy you liked our gelato flavors! The pistachio is amazing and in my opinion if you combine it with the chocolate it's an out of this world combo! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Whilst nowhere near the standard of Aussie coffee, it is probably the best in Aspen? The croissants are good too, if somewhat large. The queues are testimony to its popularity and we went all 3 mornings whilst in Aspen. Get an early morning walk in...More
