The best thing about this iconic ice cream store is that they offer free samples of there excellent cookies and unlimited tastes of their delicious ice cream. It isn't cheap and the variety isn't exceptional.

It was pricey. Especially when you have 5 children ALL of which want their own cone. But we had just been walking. The sun was brilliant. And getting an ice cream was the icing on our proverbial cake today. You only live once. And somehow...More

all I know is the owners have a gold mine in a silver town, with a fast-moving line out the door and bakegoods and gelato as fine as the service

As in the title, the coffee and baked goods were very good, particularly the cinnamon roll and the brownie a la mode. However the lady who served us was not very friendly and it is expensive for both coffee and food.

Nice ice cream, though I never thought it was quite worth the price. Friendly service though, and the cookies are particularly nice.

On the days they actually have "fresh" muffins, they may be good, but the owners/managers here are a joke!! First, I've never seen a business blatantly lie to a regular customer (I live in Aspen) about "fresh" food. When you buy one muffin that's soft...More

For 40 years, we don't know a business more commited at baking fresh all day long. And since 1981 there is not a business in Aspen that has provided more opportunities for local youth, locals in general and students as Paradise Bakery. We welcome you...More

I live and work in Aspen, and I eat their muffins almost daily. However, I've noticed inconsistencies in the quality, especially on the weekends. It seems as if the muffins are not baked daily, but rather made in bulk and stockpiled until sold. As a...More

Thank you for your review! We make all of our baked goods fresh daily, throughout the day and we never stockpile until they are sold. Whatever is left at the end of the night goes to many charitable organizations as a donation. I apologize if...More

Our favorite afternoon snack place in Aspen. Can sample cookies, brownies, cakes, muffins, etc. waiting in line to order ice cream which is the best...sugar cones with a cookie on top and a spoon if needed.
