Located over Explore bookstore, this charming hidden gem deserves a look. Although they specialize in vegan and vegetarian dishes, there are poultry and fish choices too. We found the soups (butternut squash and mushroom soups wete on the menu) delicious! Creamy without any dairy, they were thick and spicy. The sweet potato gnocchi was flavorful and filling. We shared a... More

Love this place. The atmosphere is like you're in a lovely treehouse. Food is excellent and service is great. We were there on a snowy day, the soup/salad combo and shrimp w/vegetables and black rice was perfect for my husband and me. The fresh juices are amazing too. Don't miss this place.

At 221 E. Main, above Explore Bookseller. They have very good vegetarian food in a bright room. The outdoor porch in the summer has great views of Ajax. Don’t miss it. I love it for lunch and go every time I am in town!

It can be hard to find delicious vegan dinner out. This is my go-to place to dine in Aspen. I've never had a bad meal here. Plus the ambiance is very private, like you've found an undiscovered gem. Love it.

We visited Aspen in December for business and stayed longer for a few days of vacation. We are both vegan and found this incredible restaurant that is on the second floor of an amazing bookstore. There are lots of great vegan options and the setting is very charming and welcoming. There are also vegetarian options. We highly recommend trying Pyramid... More

Wonderful healthy menu. Vegan, vegetarian or stir fry Chicken and Shrimp - everything is made in true nutritional spirit. And you can read any of the Explore Bookstore volumes while you eat!

Trying to find a restaurant in Aspen that wouldn't break the bank, we decided to try Pyramid. We're so glad we did - the bookstore setting is so quaint and unique, and the food was some of the best vegetarian/vegan this meat lover has had so far.

Never thought a restaurant above a bookstore could be so good! Ordered the sweet potato gnocchi and it was delicious and scrumptious. Seasoned to perfection. Not only did it taste good, I could tell that it was good for me. Will make the two hour one-way drive to go here again easily!
