REVIEWS OF Paradise Bakery & Cafe IN Colorado

Clarissa Marquez

If I could give zero stars, I would. This place is the most unfriendly place in Aspen. I came to visit Aspen with my family for the weekend and wanted ice cream. First, the cashier told me I could not have any samples until I made a purchase. How was I suppose to choose a flavor if I have never been here before? As my family and I sampled the variety of ice creams we were forced to move down the line. We got very mean look as in ‘what’s their problem?’. The customer behind me in the line asked the employee if she could use another spoon because she was allergic to pistachios. The I couldn’t help to over the obnoxious employee MOCK the elderly lady under her breathe to the other employee. Another employee helping with me the sampling constantly ignored and kept yelling ‘is anyone here actually ready’ as he looked down on my family and I. We were embarrassed and we shouldn’t have been. We did not get to choose the ice cream we wanted because they employees told the customers behind us to move down, forcing us out the door. We did not end up liking the flavors we got.

arjun singh

We needed good ice cream and we got it . It was a real hot day

Gwen Ryan

He said "Let's go to Aspen for ice cream" Best chocolate ice ever had.

Crossfit Nmb

Great for ice creams, cookies, and other desserts. If you are walking around Aspen, this is an easy and "sweet" stop.

Pegi Sarcomo

Food was dry and seemed old. Service seemed bothered by customers being there. Wouldn't recommend.

Fabio La Franca

I had a delicious apple croissant and a caffe latte

Spencer Adkins

There was a very friendly staff. The inside of the shop is small and probably can have 20 people inside at a time but it has great outdoor seating nearby.

November Scorpio

Honestly nothing special. DID NOT like the mini cookies; barely had flavor. This is a small place & not much of a menu for bakery. I gave an extra star for the service being “somewhat” good....

Karen T

Love the Walnut zucchini muffins

Karen Esquivel

Beautiful ice creams & sorbets, cookies, muffins... looked so good! I didn't see any gluten free options. Nice and quick service.

Kim T

The ice cream was just what we needed on a hot summer day. The line was long but moved quickly.

John Stoltz

Enjoyed the goodies and talking to some of the other guests.

Valencia Lin

Delicious ice cream and muffin!

Deanna Ritenour

Great Gelato and Rootbeer floats!

Elizabeth Frisbie

The great coffee and snacks for a great price!

Cora Simpich

Yummy Squash muffins with coconut topping!

Christie Bennett

Great looking pastries and coffee, ridiculously expensive.

Ellyce Davis

A little wait but it's definitely worth it!

Raymond Perez

If I could give this zero stars I would. The tortillas on the breakfast burritos are always hard, and when you take your first bites the food is hot and then the middle is ice cold. I believe that it means the burrito is being microwaved.. I don’t think that’s cool at all considering that it’s like $9 for a microwaved cold and hard burrito... Really really sad..

Mani Dhawan

Delicious ice cream and cookies

James Talvy

Sorry... Hot chocolate was not any good and figured they could get that right in a cold climate and the brownie was not tasty as well... Just over sweet frosting on non-fudgy dry cake. :-(

Marlene Mcgovern

The Best cappuccino in town. Free various cookie and muffin morsels eye level on counter to wet your appetite. Really cool and welcoming staff. Always greeted with smiles. Great positive booster to begin each day in Paradise. At Paradise

don buckner

Excellent breakfast and lunch place, great for kids and extraordinary homemade pies and desserts.

Patrick Moorhead

So yummy with benches to hang out on to eat your treats. Good views of Ajax too.

Jakki LaFleur

Lovely and yummy

Joey P

Raspberry mocha is to die for

Kevin Morley

Coffee was luke warm. Server had a bad attitude. No bathrooms. Nowhere to sit that isn't in full sun

Jennifer Luttrell

Must go to fill your sweet tooth. The banana chocolate chip muffins were amazing! If you love brownies, you have to try their dark chocolate brownies.

Kelly Hoffpauir

The staff was really sweet and the pastries that we bought were delicious! The lady waiting on us even gave me a piece of there wonderful carrot cake for free because she said I made her laugh that day! Very sweet people oh and the hot chocolate my husband said its the best he has ever had!

Mike Jahn

Tasty cookies, ice cream, coffee, and more! During the summer, you can hear live music by the AMFS students most days/evenings, and it's a popular gathering spot year round.

Jersey Davis

This is an excellent place to get your baked goods or have breakfast or lunch, or even get sandwiches for a good hike. I come in here each time I visit the area, and the food is always good, the service fine and friendly, and the prices reasonable. Be prepared to wait on summer mornings, because this place is not a secret. Locals and tourists alike keep these people working hard. It's worth any little wait you might have.

sagar gohil

Awesome place to hangout but parking is difficult and the staff is not super friendly. Its pretty crowded during busy summer hours.

Andrey Katz

Almost a "must visit" place in Aspen. The best gelato that you can get in town. Plenty of flavors to choose from, and it is really delicious. Also a great bakery. An ideal place to have a dessert.

Anonymous Trucking

Nice place but really expensive. 4 muffins and 3 coffees were almost $30... Welcome to aspen. Food was good and coffee was good too. Just waaay too expensive.

Fernando Mier

Worth the calories. There are so many bakeries around the US. Most sell the same things. Cookies, pastries, coffee ice cream. Paradise bakery has been open for as long as I can remember. Located at the same corner in downtown Aspen. Their cookies are simply fantastic. The recipe has been the same for years and are the only pastors worth the calories. Get there early and avoid long lines. Open rain snow or shine. Enjoy!!

Nicholas Tucker

I can’t state how incredibly delicious the cookies are at this bakery. My favorite are the sugar and chocolate chip cookies. Food for the soul.

Custom Wedding Gowns By Debra Green Design

One of Aspen's gems.

Afroz Budhwani

Good ol ice cream

Grant Christensen

They do a fair job if you want fresh cookies and ice cream, fresh coffee that's the place in to go in Aspen

Josh Ollar

Great breakfast bagels and the staff were super friendly.

Ricardo T

C'mom, no big deal! Just ok

Adam Morgan

The place was packed and had a line to the door. We took that as a good sign. The staff moved the line very quickly while still being cheerful and funny. The ice cream we got was very very good and came with a warm chocolate chip cookie on top. I would recommend this place to anyone. Parking is reasonably easy to find within a couple blocks.

Jeremiah Hall

The name says it all.

Rose Smith

A huge mix of yummy baked goods & Gelato! And coffee!

Wayne Winton

Nice little place for a quick bit.

Amir Pirbhoy

Quick grab and go location in downtown ASPEN. Only downside is no indoor seating; dress warm my friends!

The Travel Person

Classic institute in downtown Aspen. Great for a quick muffin or coffee.

Kurt Coffman

Coffee, muffins, cookies and gelato. Can't go wrong

Rosalie O'Brien

Pretty pricey for some ice cream, and not a huge bakery selection, but we thought the quality was decent. Seemed to be a popular spot as well.

Noor Assiri

Many flavors of ice cream to choose from. The chocolate chip on top tastes great. The wait is long so make sure you have time!

Jeffrey Colburn

Religiously come here every sunday

Vadim Fayzullin

I love everything , but i am not sure if they have healthy food.

Hunter G

Best muffins in town! Every time I come to town I make sure to stop here before going to our condo and grab a blueberry muffin for the next morning and an ice cream cone to enjoy whilst watching the sun set in the nearby park. Sometimes this popular place can get crowded with the limited space they have but do not fret because the freshly baked goods, iced coffee and chocolate sweets are worth the wait!

Ja'Nae Lindsey

Inexpensive pastries, dessert, and coffee! I got some grapefruit gelato, which was very good and tasted very high quality! Oh and I would get there early because during the later hours it can get a bit crowded. That right there should tell you how great this place is! Great for kids!

Sara Nations

Friendly staff, delicious muffin

Daniel Araki

Perfect for a quick breakfast before taking the shuttles to the mountains. Was delicious!

Mario Mendoza

Great in house made ice cream, awesome coffee, awesome pastries. would recommend to check it out if ur in the neighborhood and have a sweet tooth.

Linda Obeid

Peanut butter cookies and cream icecream in the cone. Need I say more. Delicious. Served quickly even though line was long all day. Great staff. The extra cookie was a special touch.

Ann G

Delicious snickerdoodles and gelato; service was excellent too!

Tiffany Tran

Cookies did not disappoint. Definitely would recommend buy 3 get 1 free.

Karyn Potts

Best little bakery here. The morning glory muffins are to die for! Definitely be back.

David Feldman

Cookies were very good but realized once we had left the bakery that they only gave us 7 when we had actually paid for 8!

Frank Shamrock

Great Gelato selection. Long lines.

Paul Hamlin Hamalian

Great food and coffee. Quick curtious service.

Ji Bak Olson

Yummy yummy yummy!!! But those men who work here were so so so rude.... They seem they need a vacation

Line can be long, but it's totally worth the wait!

Detran Lott

I was very impressed by the freshness and authenticity of the coffee. Awesome.

Mrs Prikles

Great baked goods and delicious ice cream.

Emily Cartagena

It was ok, but quite pricey. Maybe reasonable for Aspen.

Best muffins, cider, and gelato I have ever had!! I recommend the apple cider, blueberry and apple muffins, and mango gelato.

Stanley C

Good stuff

michael montgomery

I really go for the mandarin orange muffin but coffee is always fresh and friendly smiles to start the day in Aspen. $1 coffee refill

Andrew Callaway

Paradise is the the best. Well known among the locals as a top spot for coffee, a delicious selection of breakfast items, and of course the best ice cream in town. They make everything in house, and you can taste the difference. No indoor seating, but this Aspen! Who wants to sit inside?!

david lienau

Gelato, bakery, and Blondie brownies...Pure heaven!

James Chong

Good buttery croissant and strong coffee!

Rodney Wood

Stopped for dessert and what a great Carrot Cake the serve.

John Quinn

I had the banana nut muffin AND a croissant. I wanted to give a very thorough review ;) Both were excellent!

Great staff, delicious icecream. Thank you

Joseph Lipsey III

Very good breakfast and coffee spot.

v hudson

Wonderful bakery, sweet and savory!! I would have gone there every day if I had tried it sooner!

Bruce Salimi

Nice selections, but the staff seemed too arrogant and unfriendly!

Jack Sarick

The heart of Aspen. A landmark in every local's childhood, and a sweet memory for every tourist.

Emie Friedman

Very busy yet staff are friendly and patient with the crowds. Delicious ice cream and pastry.

Lee Zimmerman

Very good.

Jeff Bay

Always great ice-cream, cookies and friendly people serving. An Aspen tradition for many years. Hopefully they will be just as successful in their new location in 2 years

James Watkins

Yummy baked goods and ice cream.

Norma Cornejo

Very nice cozy shop with baked goods and ice cream.

Signa Strom

Best ice cream and coffee in town.

Alex Menech

Great shop their hit chocolate was killer and so was their ice cream

Ron Chapman



Sample cookies In the ice cream cups - game changer


Cookies here are awesome. Don’t miss trying those.

Robert Walker

No bread. No cakes. No pies. Merely pastries, and very few of those. Why is this place called a bakery? I have a bigger display area on my counter at home. Also, no place to sit. No accommodation for customers at all. Adorn needs a good bakery but this is just an ice cream stand.

Amani Romaïssa Djail

Very delicious everything of very good quality from ice cream to bakery

Sushi Rolls

My cinnamon roll was $1 and some change. That's pretty good. Decor was cozy and there was a huge line. Definitely worth checking out.

Thomas Steed

Small and pricey but worth it

Mitch V

Great place for a small bite to eat. Good muffins

Abdullah Almalki

A local dessert shop that you must pop into if you're in town. Excellent baked goods and sweets at reasonable prices. There isn't any inside seating so its more of a quick snack place. A must summer or winter!!

Rene D. Rodriguez

Best cherry filled croissants in the mountains

Dasha Gilmore


Sudhir Popat

I really like their pastries and staff. Super fast and attentive

Paul Tiger

Pricey breakfast (it's Aspen); slow service or no service - depending on how you're dressed (it's Aspen). Snarky over the phone for reservations that you will need, and then snarky in-person. Food was good, people serving it were bad

Martha Hunt

Gelato was delicious. Asked the young lady which flavors were gluten free. Ordered my ice cream and she sticks a cookie on the top!!

Mara Chomsky

Try the snicker doodle with hot chocolate and whipped cream. Never a bad cookie choice here though.

Stephanie Olivares

Came in on a Sunday afternoon with a big group of family to enjoy this well rated bakery, when it was our turn to order we were told in order to sample any ice cream we had to pay for it first even if we didn’t know what we wanted. We agreed to this and when it came to sampling ice cream we are limited to sampling 2 only and were told to move the line along, constantly being asked “does anyone know what they want” with horrible looks given and sense of annoyance in their voice. Everyone was forced to make a rash decision as it seemed we were being kicked out the door. The way we were treated was really unfair, everyone else got smiles while my colored family was treated with much disrespect. The staff was really disrespectful as they mocked their customers when any special requests were made. It was a real disappointment.

William Mintz

Great cookies muffins brownies

David Snook

The best bakery in Aspen. Great selection baked at least twice daily.

Andrew David

Expect to pay no less than $4 for everything in store from a small scoop of ice cream to a small muffin. Ice cream is delicious however and it is cheaper than most establishments in Aspen.

Troy Layne

Good selection of Gelato but the pastries were a bit sparse, the prices high and there always seemed to be a line of tourists.

Morgan Check

The best cookies and ice cream. You can smell the cookies that they are baking down the street. Usually a line, but worth it

ATSF 3256

Great Ice cream and espresso!

Austin Evans

Try their strawberry ice cream

Charlotte C.

A wonderful place to go for coffee and baked goods. In the summer they have great ice cream, waffle cones and samples. This place is popular among locals, the prices are reasonable and they're friendly.

Kelly Bruett

Good cookies but the kids working the shop were too busy chatting to get the orders right. I ordered 2 cookies and 2 scoops of ice cream. 1 cookie was replaced with a muffin and 1 scoop of ice cream was wrong. Was able to get the cookie fixed, but what can you do about already scooped ice cream? Parking is limited and expensive.

Bryana Starbuck

Mmmmmm... so good. I've been here several times and everything is delicious. If you don't know what to get, there is often a platter of samples to point you in a direction. Pretty standard coffee shop fair, but with a large selection of baked goods and an ice cream case. The benches out front are also a good way to enjoy your beverage or snack and people watch.

anah garcia

Not bad. Average portion for price in Aspen. All their ice cream comes with a cookie on it though, which isn't listed anywhere. Allergy people beware!

Stacey Kitto

Had to wait in a line around the corner but very worth the wait.

Domagoj Pribanic

As a European that's used to having bakeries like this on almost every corner, this place was a great sight. Coffee is OK, the ice cream is meh, but the freshly baked pastries and the like are excellent. Can be crowded at times, especially in the morning, but the staff is quite good and keep the line moving quickly.

Ale Lanaro

Delicious coffee and chippers

Dasa Bausova

Great yummies, great service and they are generous to our community, thank you!

Stephen Jaouen

Always yummy pastries.

Lawrence Wampler

Great ice cream/gelato, quick service, free samples from their bakery while you wait, friendly staff. House made waffle cones too.

Malhar Desai

Very nice place to have hot coffee after skiing. Variety of drinks, cookies and ice creams.

Deanna Mcclure

On our way home to Oklahoma, stopped in for scoop of Ice Cream, walked out with a bag of cookies, they are so yummy and a great treat driving home. Everyone was so friendly, great place to check out.

electro wasabi

Ice cream was good but a bit too melted when served. On the pricey side.

Rachel Whelan

Overpriced (yes, I know, it's Aspen), and the folks working seem to struggle to get orders right. They messed up two of our three drinks. No indoor seating, and the queue is a bit disorganized. The free samples were redeeming, but if you really need coffee, find a Starbucks.

Edik Simonian

They have the best coffee! staff where very friendly and their service is really fast!

Dennis Bason

Delicious Coffee

Judith Leasia

The flavor was good but it was more icy than creamy. For this I was not the biggest fan

Jo Horovitz

Very good food and service... Only bad thing is the considerably long line.

Nicole Price

Amazing customer service and a killer breakfast burrito. Perfect way to start the morning!

Cherise Smith

Fudge brownies & chocolate chip cookies are sooo yummy!! Must stop by here for dessert, while in Aspen!

Ashwini G

We tried the mini cups on hot july afternoon. It was one scoop with a small cookie on top. Flavors tried Mango, coffee caramel crunch, vanilla, chocolate and pistachio. Everything was so creamy and fresh. Taste was so good that we went the second time!. This place is very small kind of crowded but the line moves fast. No seating inside, you will find some chairs outside in the city center.

Jim DeLung, PhD

Great baked goods and live the sandwiches.

Vikramsingh Solanki

Great ice cream flavors. Must try this place for desserts

Devon Nash

Awesome place to grab ice cream, milkshakes, coffee, with a muffin or something sweet on the side.

Aaron Holloway-Nahum

YUMMMMMM! Lemonade on a hot summer day: AMAZING. Also lots of fun in summer evenings when Aspen musicians busk outside.

John M.

The pastries are outstanding. Went back everyday. Ice cream also seems popular

Johnny Smoke

Get your grub on!

Craig P.

Best cookies anywhere

Tori Cook

Great service and delicious food!

Julia V

Amazing ice cream and service! Everyone should try it!!

Doug Schutt


Kenny Lauck

Go get your coffee and sweets here. Price is good and staff are friendly. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because no seating inside.

Garrett Williams

Nice small bakery. Staff were helpful . Plenty of samples to go around. Great apple cider and muffins !

Adam Feldman

Great cookies and ice cream

Ky Christensen

It was good. People were very nice. The setting is beautiful. The sugar cookies...not that good.

Angie VanSchoick

Hot day in Aspen calls for something cold. My little one ate an entire small cup on her own! This is amazing since she typically only eats about 3 bites and is disinterested. Thank you for making such a delicious treat!
