My wife and I were driving from Aspen to Colorado Springs. We pulled off the road at Twin Lakes to stretch our legs and admire the natural beauty of the location. Since it was lunch time we surveyed the dining situation there in town. With low expectations we walked over to the Twin Lakes Inn to read the posted menu hoping for at least for a half decent burger. The hotel receptionist informed us that we could sit outside and our little dog was welcome.
To shorten this review I'll say that our expectations were greatly exceeded. Our waiter was friendly and laid back. The big surprise was the high quality of the food we were served. My wife had a gourmet roasted tomato soup, and a turkey sandwich on homemade bread that were both delicious. I had a tuna salad sandwich on a homemade baguette with a house salad that was excellent. We shared an order of truffle fries that were as good as any we have eaten in Aspen or elsewhere.
The menu had many more enticing items that we did not sample but would love to return to try in the future. I'm not sure about the other review posted here but our experience was nothing short of excellent. Again, we were very pleasantly surprised! My compliments to the chef and staff!
