Be sure to stop by and see their awesome selection of meats and fish for grilling. Top quality, great service, central location near the City Market. Walkable from anywhere in Aspen.

Tuna on light rye and a pastrami with an orzo salad on the side were a good lunch in the Aspen sun. Neither sandwich was exceptional but both completely adequate. I found the orzo a bit lacking. I am not sure what the cure is perhaps a bit more pasta and a little vinegar in the dressing, but it does... More

This place offers home cooking for take away if you don't want to do it yourself and next door is the liquor store. They do soups, cheeses and hams at reasonable prices.

the quality of their "eats" is excellent...they have products that can NOT be found anyplace else in Aspen....they are rather expensive when it comes to buying meat, seafood, etc. but worth the expense as food is fresh and unobtainable elswhere.

Hiked to crater lake at the maroon bells, and stopped in here for some sandwiches to take with us. They suggested using their fresh French rolls for bread and they held up great. A nice treat at the top of the hike!

We've gone here 3 days for lunches for our day trips in the atv, fly fishing and trip up the gondola. Great selection. Decent prices ( it is Aspen), great selection of breads, salami, olives, orzo, grape leaves and more! Great snacks, crackers, meats, etc. great location next to city market. Quick also. Enjoy!

Best french dip sandwich I've had in a long time. Little place, but awesome food. Service was great. I didn't realize my au ju sauce was under my sandwich and I went back in asked for some & no questions asked just gave me more!
