Aspen Juice Bar preserves the nutritional value of its produce by the cold-pressing process. Unlike blending, this technique doesn't create any unwanted heat or oxygen, resulting in smooth and tasty beverages. Indeed, the process itself is important, but so are the actual fruits and veggies. Aspen Juice Bar sources those from local, Colorado-based producers and makes sure they're organic whenever possible. The resulting menu features juices designed for numerous purposes, including immune system health, detoxification, and energy. One energy elixir packs kale, cucumber, pineapple, mint, and ginger into every sip, making it the perfect boost for busy professionals and cyborgs with low batteries.
During his 27-year tenure in the bar business, Tim Doherty often stayed up until sunrise. These days, however, he rises with the sun to open his breakfast joint, Syrup. The moniker refers to Tim?s specialty: housemade syrups infused with apricot, vanilla, Kahlua, and seasonal flavors. His sweet creations drench pancakes topped with everything from Oreos to the strawberries and blueberries of the DoubleBerry Bliss, which the Denver Post praises as ?a stack of pancake heaven.?
Flapjacks aren?t Syrup's only from-scratch breakfast treat. There's also french toast smeared with Nutella and Santa Fe??themed eggs benedict topped with local chorizo and green-chili stew. The all-day menu likewise caters to the lunch crowd with open-faced pulled-pork sandwiches and burgers crowned with maple-pepper bacon. Both of those dishes can be sandwiched between gluten-free buns, and the restaurant's waffles, english muffins, pancakes, and napkins can also be served sans gluten.
