I live and work in Aspen, and I eat their muffins almost daily. However, I've noticed inconsistencies in the quality, especially on the weekends.

Thank you for your review! We make all of our baked goods fresh daily, throughout the day and we never stockpile until they are sold. Whatever is left at the end of the night goes to many charitable organizations as a donation. I apologize if you got a muffin that to you seemed stale. For the future, if that ever... More

Grab a double scoop on a waffle cone and sit outside and people watch. The Aspen scene is unlike any other. Great dessert spot after lunch.

Thank you for your review and your kind words! We recommend trying one of the gelato-pastrie combinations as well! Warm brownie with some gelato on top, aka brownie a la mode is the perfect dessert! See you soon! More

Always a must at the end of the day! The trick is to skip dessert when dining out in town and drop by Paradise Bakery on the way home. Nice coffee and lots of freshly baked cookies from which to choose. Yum!
