Aspen Brew’s congenial coffee crew recharges energy levels with their menu’s daily offering of seven fresh microbrews, specialty drinks, and coffeehouse eats. Step up to a cherry-colored wood counter, where the café team fills up single ($1.70), double ($1.95), and triple ($2.05) sizes of coffee roasted fresh via a miniature magma generator. Sweet aromas rise from the steaming surface of specialty espresso drinks such as white-chocolate mocha ($3.50–$4.50), and patrons take home bags of their favorite roasted flavors, including a pound of bold Italian roast beans ($12.55). Each morning, ovensmiths whip up fresh batches of pastries such as muffins ($2.15), and culinary construction crews assemble high-rises of morning sustenance such as egg, sausage and bacon bagel or english muffin sandwiches ($2.79). Afternoon stomach rumblings subside as teeth sink into a southwest chipotle-chicken panini ($5.95). Melodic sound waves bounce throughout the chocolate-colored coffeehouse as patrons type out blog posts or watch instructional sandwich-eating videos, courtesy of the shop’s free WiFi.

Visitors to Aspen's Brew might forget they're inside a coffee shop at all, as the family-owned cafe cultivates an ambiance of low-key comfort reminiscent of a classic, all-American living room. Guests can admire and purchase the unique artwork on the walls while lounging on the couch, kick back with the morning paper on an upholstered grandfather chair, or handwrite their emails at one of the wooden tables. As the morning sun gradually suffuses the cozy space with natural light, baristas rustle up six award-winning micro-roasted brews from Dillanos Coffee Roasters while the on-site bakers usher out scones, muffins, croissants, and cinnamon rolls. To add even more homeyness to the mix, they also serve up bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and squares of Grandma's coffee cake, a from-scratch pastry that comes from a secret recipe whispered between generations during games of Telephone at family reunions. In the afternoon, the kitchen staffers keep the hospitality coming with fresh, made-to-order sandwiches and paninis, as well as homemade soups, specialty coffee drinks, and desserts such as carrot cake and brownies.
The folks at Aspen's Brew also cater this down-home cafe fare for events, whether for morning meetings, lunch, or afternoon gatherings. To ensure these special occasions go off without a hitch, they deliver anywhere in the greater San Antonio area.
