“Crepes to die for”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

After a week in Aspen I wanted to taste a part of France, I had crepes before but these where to good to be true. The choice wasn't easy, but after the help of my very friendly waitress, I had the French Connection and then a sweet piece of heaven. You definitely have to practice the word, but the Schokoladepalatschinke was just delicious! Everyone who loves chocolate has to try it! I never had something like that before, amazing. Highly recommended!

Welcome in France, this restaurant is a real travel in a typical french style.
The food is amazing, a lot of different option, and everything is delicious …
Waiters as cooks, (because the kitchen is open, an impressive show) are really friendly and helpful about the menu. Highly Recommended, best place in Aspen !

“Best Crepes Ever: Must Visit!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I was lucky enough to have dinner on one of the outdoor tables with couches for seats. It was perfect for people watching and scenic views! The crepes were amazing: even better than the ones I tried in Paris! The atmosphere was great and decorated adorably and the service was spectacular! I recommend the Big Apple crepe!

“Go to restaurant in Aspen”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

After 3 days in Aspen, having tried a few other nice restaurants, we stumbled onto this place and loved it. Great ambience, great food, great service (Heather was very attentive and pleasant). Favorite find. We tried the BLT with prosciutto in a toasted French baguette, the curry chicken crêpe, with coconut milk and the most tender chicken, the arugula salad and Big Apple crêpe, which was absolutely off the charts. Highly recommend it.

“a trip to Provence”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

A lovely restaurant in the heart of Aspen. Highly recommended by other chefs whom I had encountered. I chose the special of the day (Veal cheeks in a cognac.cherry sauce,) and an interestingly orepared heirloom tomato salad tomatoes and watermelon diced with a gentle balsamic dressing - tasty!) A terrific wine list enhances the menu. Choice selection from both France and California (7 Deadly Sins from Livermore is an example, Whispering Angel Rose etc.)
Owner Rafael makes everyone feel welcome. Though known for crepes and popular with a young crowd, I suggest chosing the specials. Atmosphere and service make it a wonderful Aspen choice. It feels like many of the Southern French restaurants I love.
