1 - Must-Try Brunch Spot: Peach's Corner CaféPeach’s Open Face sandwich consists of poached eggs on toast with peach butter, bacon, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, olive oil, and shaved Parmesan.

Set at the intersection of Hopkins and Galena, Peach’s Corner Café is at the epicenter of Aspen’s community happenings. And when Sunday brunch is served from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. or the Aspen Saturday Market is bustling, one is sure to spot town’s in crowd.

“Peach’s is such a magical spot. The patio is where four [street] corners meet. You feel like you are a part of the community,” says chef David Roth, co-owner of Peach’s with Lisa Haisfield.

Named after co-owner Haisfield’s mother, whose nickname was Peach, the café’s location across from City Hall is arguably the best spot in town, but Roth says the address does not define Peach’s—it’s the food and the community that make it a hot spot.

Summer’s Sunday brunch menu touts all of Peach’s favorites, such as gluten-free breads and muffins and five more daily specials. Signature dishes include fresh quinoa cakes Benedict, a variety of breakfast bowls, and the Open Face sandwich—poached eggs on toasted bread with peach butter, bacon, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, extra virgin olive oil, and shaved Parmesan. Sip Peach’s Bellini, made with fresh peach nectar and Prosecco to top off the meal.

Known for its relationship with area farms, Peach’s works with local produce guru Jack Reed and new producers from Paonia to Hotchkiss. As such, Roth is able to develop menus on the fly. “It’s wonderful to see what [ Jack] gets and then have the ability to create new dishes from his food,” Roth adds. One such inventive menu offering is the pistachio sausage, a breakfast pork sausage mixed with dried organic apples, cranberries, and pistachios made in-house. 121 S. Galena St., 970-544-9866
