Aspenites pine for the Spring Cafe’s fresh-pressed juices
The Spring Cafe has recently opened in the new building at the corner of Spring and Hopkins. The sleek décor includes a clean, white interior and outdoor patio, and the restaurant has fast become a hot spot for breakfast and lunch among health conscious Aspenites and visitors who understand “you are what you eat.” Spring Cafe cooks with organic coldpressed oils, sea salt, and fresh herbs. It whips up pastries and desserts with spelt, almond, and oat flour; all baked goods are sweetened with low-glycemic coconut sugar, agave nectar, and maple syrup. Dairy products and eggs are locally sourced and cruelty-free.
Since owner Sabrina Rudin opened her Aspen outpost, there has been a steady stream of locals pining for fresh-pressed juices, organic salads, hearty vegetarian sandwiches, smoothies, soups, and baked goods. And guests who suffer from food allergies or intolerances will find cashew cheddar cheese nachos and other allergy free delights.
Espresso? They’ve got that covered, too, with outstanding roasts from Defiant Bean Roasters in Glenwood Springs. Bon appétit! 119 S. Spring St., 970-429-8406
