A lovely, intimate Aspen restaurant that serves delicious pastries and breakfast items, through excellent dinner options, appetizers and wine/cocktails. The service was superb. Quiet, not glitzy or pretentious. Will be back!

Food is great but the service is slow and the drinks are not worth the price. Much better cocktail options around bear den. Ambiance is also lacking. Super quiet and weird music. Service was slow despite not a ton of people there. Recommend for takeout or if you are here for a bit and are looking for another good option.

small but concise menu, rotates at the time of day. Cocktails and wine list available. Excellent light/mood/ambiance for the inside, and cozy settings on the outside. Waitstaff is professional. Pastries/baked goods are fresh from the kitchen, and breakfast is full of flavor, good-med sized portions, as well as the other meals. Really love the feel of the place, and flavor of the food overall. price is appropriate to similar restaurants of the area.

Bear Den is quiet and quaint. Counter, dine-in, and outside dining are available. Reservations are needed for seated service. Menu offers quite a bit from light pastry bites to full breakfast/brunch options. The Bloody Mary was delicious--the dill in the mix was exceptional and perfect change of pace. Heads up: service is slow so best not to be in a hurry.

We had heard about this place last time we were in Aspen. We never got a chance tinted it. This time we drove in for the day and luckily, with all of the Covid restrictions, we were able to grab a table for brunch. Two of us had the sashimi tuna stir fry. AMAZING! And one of us had the version of a breakfast burrito. Also delicious. We asked for bread and butter and it too was delicious. Not sure what they put in the butter. So good!!

I ordered a meal with lots of veggies and noodles. There were no vegetable mentioned on the menu on my plate or hardly any veggies at all. Noodles were a cold gelatinous clump. Very small portion. My partner's meal was as described and pretty tasty but very small. The bloody mary's were pretty good. They call themselves a bakery but there was no baked good in site. Nice location and we got a sweet table. Not worth the time or the money. Sorry.
