    Zele's Cafe: A Great Place For Coffee, Salad or a Sandwich!

    by tetonski1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This place is where I spent the most time off the hill. Whether stopping in for breakfast coffee and pastry, or for lunch at their outdoor tables facing the mountain; you must visit Zele's.

    Zele's has two locations in Aspen. One is called Zele's Cafe which serves meals and has outside tables . The other location called Zele's New Music Cafe, is smaller and doesn't serve any meals. It's more of a music store with coffee on the side. There is a live music, as well as a D.J. who blends smooth New Age tunes through the speakers.

    A great side benefit of both Zele locations is that they offer free wireless for your computer.

    Favorite Dish: Their organic coffees are wonderful. They are grown without synthetic herbicides, insecticides, or fertilizers.

    They also have lots of yummy sandwiches, soups and salads.

    la Crêperie du Village: Fondue et Crêpes

    by MM212 Written Mar 28, 2013

    Owned by a Frenchman, the simple rustic Crêperie du Village serves delicious fondues, raclette and crêpes, among other dishes. It started off as a crêperie, but overtime expanded to include other French/Alpine dishes. It was a delicious, authentic experience, in an otherwise pretentious and mostly expensive town. Just beware, the open kitchen means you walk out smelling like a kitchen (fortunately, one that produces good food).

    Rustique Bistro: Rustique: tasty French bistro

    by MM212 Updated Mar 28, 2013

    Located in the heart of Aspen, Rustique is a French bistro with well executed French dishes accompanied by French wines. It is considered one of the best French restaurants in town (definitely need to reserve), but still not too pretentious for a town like Aspen.

  • Some great restaurants to...

    by Large_Bob Written Aug 26, 2002

    Some great restaurants to visit! I have to split my vote for my favorite between Matsuhisa and Pinons.
    Little Nell and Ajax Tavern are also great. Prepare to spend.
