This is one of our favorites in CB! Everything is perfectly spiced and flavored! We haven't had a meal yet that we have not enjoyed. Friendly staff, timely service, great flavors, quaint setting.

We visited Ginger Café for a late lunch on our first day in town and again for après ski drinks. It's a beautiful and cozy restaurant with top notch food and friendly service. We make it a point to visit Ginger Café every time we vacation in Crested Butte.

We went on a Monday night without a reservation and ended up sitting at the Bar, not something I would typically chose...but what a treat. It was great fun watching the bartender make all sorts of drinks (and sharing his secrets for making ginger syrup...). The food was exceptional and service was great.

Wonderful house, converted into Thai Restaurant. Specializing in Pad Thai, it did not disappoint. Great soups too. Small restaurant with no more than 20 seats, but perfect! Great service, and small bar. This has got to be the best choice for Thai in the area.

Small, yet cozy place with a great menu. Portions very generous and the Lamb Biriyani was outstanding. Perfect amount of heat without being over spicy.

This place is small and reservations are absolutely required. Dinner for 4 - family style. We ordered 4 appetizers and 3 entrees and shared. All quite tasty.

I love the Tom Yum Gung soup, but if you get it to go, you get a much smaller portion. the side of rice was not cooked and for $3 I could have bought a bag of raw rice. Pricey, but good.

We visited Ginger Cafe after an epic powder day on Mt. Crested Butte. It was the perfect end to a perfect day. The food was a mix of traditional Thai and inventive options - all were delicious! Don't miss the Thai lavosh or zen's ginger fried rice. The cocktails were wonderful, too.

Thought this little place was super cute and cozy! Wanted to love it. Friendly server. My partner ordered the pho lunch special and me the Thai beef salad. Each had a 10$ cocktail as well. Our bartender/server said our drinks should have came out quicker, she was apologetic and took my drink price off the tab. Which I appreciated, but... More
