It is so fun and cozy. Brand new restaurant in town. The entire staff is from Germany. The presentation is fabulous and the ambiance feels like you are in Germany. The restaurant is very tiny, they do have a big community table that you can sit with a large group.

Cross country ski, snowshoe or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride under the stars to one of Aspen’s most romantic restaurant settings. It is about a 40 minute drive up to Ashcroft (so you will need a car). Reservations are required. In the summer they are open for lunch.

The legend of Hunter S. Thompson — and many of this quirky enclaves' characters — lives on in this rustic road house just outside town. Perfect for a bike-ride lunch down the Rio Grande (in the summer). You can either ride back up to town or take a taxi. In the winter its about a 15 minute drive.

Favorite Breakfast & Lunch Spots
Open breakfast and lunch. 1/2 a block from condo. All vegetarian health conscious food. Also have smoothies and baked food. Big portions, I usually end up taking some home. Also a good spot to order dinner to go from (before they close). A casual vibe. You order at counter for food.

You always need a backup plan (Meat & Cheese and Tatanka are right next door), as the wait can be obnoxious. But the chicken sandwich is the best! Small menu that is the same for lunch and dinner. French dip is also really popular.
