The Best of the Best: The Top 6 Coffee Shops in Aspen
1. Local – Coffee House & Eatery | Order Online
Local serves options from traditional drip coffee to crazy creations like a Tombmaker (a Turmeric Latte with a shot of Maker’s Mark). Local is perfect for those who consider coffee and breakfast a package deal. Give our favorites a try: the Prosciutto Toast, Truffle Potato Skillet, and Breakfast Bagel.
2. Spring Café | Order Online
Lighten up your morning at this coffee and juice bar! “Sabrina Rudin founded Spring Café Aspen in 2013 in Aspen, CO, with the goal of providing locals and visitors with organic and nourishing vegetarian food to fuel the activity-driven lifestyle of the small mountain town.” They have all of your traditional coffee offerings and smoothies, juices, and teas. Feeling adventurous? Try their Shot of the Day!
3. Jour de Fête | Order Online
Jour de Fête is a gorgeous mom-and-pop Aspen institution. You’ll see an overwhelmingly French influence, but “each recipe has a story, and often times is named after either a loyal customer or a family member.” With an extensive menu and lots of substitutions available, Jour de Fête has something for everyone in your group.
Local tip: They speak English, French, and Spanish at this establishment!
4. Ink! Coffee
If you’re looking for freshly roasted, high-altitude coffee, you’ll find it at Ink! With over 12 locations in Colorado, Ink has become a regional household name.
Local tip: Ink! has an excellent selection of GF food items.
5. Bear Den | Order Online | Make Reservations
Bear Den is a vibrant gourmet bistro that serves up coffee creations, decadent brunch, après ski bites, and gourmet dinner paired with craft cocktails and unique wines. For breakfast, we highly recommend the Monte Cristo paired with a Matcha or Cortado, but you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu.
6. Paradise Bakery | Order Online
Locally owned and operated since 1981, Paradise offers service with a smile, fresh coffee, and delicious baked goods. Their most famous menu items are their Famous Homemade Lemonade and their Croissants and Muffins, but you can enjoy a myriad of treats here, including Gelato!
