This place has amazing food! Pleasantly surprised with the menu. I tried the pho, which exceeded my expectation. Would definitely dine here again.

I've dined at the Ginger Cafe many times since moving to CB (and before while visiting as well). The food is amazing and always provides a surprise with the options in their fusion offerings. Don't miss this place while in Crest d Butte.

Loved the warm, cozy atmosphere of this converted old house. Had a nice meal of an Indian-style dish. Not authentic Indian cuisine in my opinion, but still very tasty. Lots of good spices.

I met a few friends here for a drink and a snack. The bartender was from Chicago and so friendly but that might be since we all lived in Chicago now. I had a Ginger White (maybe not the name) which was delicious! If you like creamy drinks I highly recommend. We also all split the egg roles. Just the... More

Moderately priced menu items. Dishes were nicely done and in a healthier style. Gets crowded around dinner time. Good food

Excellent taste! A filling lunch with appetizers and one main to share. Can be busy, so try and go slightly "off" times.

I rarely bother to write reviews but feel compelled to do so after this meal. Nice room and pleasant enough staff. But food is really very very mediocre. And expensive. Green curry is really brown gravy. Pad Thai is noodles with a few bits of cilantro. Spices seem to consist mainly of 'heavy on the salt'. Ski town Thai always... More

I certainly didn't expect to find Thai this good in a small mountain town. It was delicious! The menu is small, but everything on the menu sounded amazing! We sat on the patio for lunch on a warm September day; the inside is very small, but it's a cute old house. I had the green curry and it was one... More

This is one of our favorites in CB! Everything is perfectly spiced and flavored! We haven't had a meal yet that we have not enjoyed. Friendly staff, timely service, great flavors, quaint setting.
