A Ladybug Bakery and Cafe

Last Saturday a friend and I met up at A Ladybug Cafe in Aspen for breakfast. Given the recent Nellies fiasco with the health board, Kyle’s choice was clear – anywhere but Nellies.

This was the second time I have been to Ladybug and I was just as happy with the food this time around as I was the last. Known for their crepes, you can get everything from a savory chicken and mushroom crepe, to my personal favorite the Banana, Strawberry, and Chocolate crepe.

While Ladybug is known for their thin pancake type delights, one thing that is often overlooked is there hand pulled espresso that is far superior to any Starbucks, it even rivals Phil & Sebastien as far as taste goes (P & S have got them on presentation hands down).

One complaint I often hear about them is their service. They have recently changed to an order at the counter and deliver it to the table type model. While this may not be the norm for a restaurant that garners the prices that they do, I think it is far superior to the erratic service of the past. Not only that, but if you are in a meeting, you can order and not worry about getting pestered by an annoying waitress while you are mid discussion.

If you want to try a breakfast that isn’t typical of your normal everyday eggs and bacon, go give Ladybug a try. I doubt you will be dissapointed.

  1. You are so on the mark about the Ladybug bakery.

    Love the food and the coffee. I especially love their spelt wheat baguettes. As someone with a wheat sensitivity it allows me to have my bread and eat it to.


  2. I had the worst experience at Nellie’s. Not awesome. I’m looking forward to checking out the Ladybug Bakery.

    I would also recommend the Brunch at Heritage Park on Sunday mornings. It’s extra fun because of the atmosphere. Where else will you get a cute[old] lady playing parlour tunes on the piano?

  3. Good call on Heritage Park. My friend Jan Hansen is the executive chef there. Any time he gets his hands on a menu it is guaranteed to be phenomenal. I just wish we had him back at the Glencoe.
