From its spot-on baristas to its colorful Fiestaware dishes and mugs, to its carefully curated selection of baked goods from the valley’s best bakeries and its made-to-order pan-inis, Elevated Grounds gets it right. The fact it's in the Aspens, mid-route between Jackson and Teton Village gives it extra points. Stop in for a cup of Joe, a baked good, and a breakfast panini as you're heading out to ski the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Stop back in on your way home for a heaping sandwich and perhaps an espresso. Burritos are Jackson Hole chargers’ go-to breakfasts, but the strawberry cream cheese croissant at Elevated Grounds weighs about as much as a D.O.G. breakfast burrito and isn't nearly as much of a gut bomb as the D.O.G. The croissant's gooey strawberry/cream cheese center is to die for. There are also plenty of other pastries as well as daily quiches. Need more than a snack? The smell of warm paninis is difficult to avoid. The chicken salad pesto melt panini is a star. Not that other panini options (all $8.96) are bad by any means. There's brie and apple—sliced Granny Smith apples and melted brie with yogurt cranberry sauce—and ham and Swiss—sliced honey ham and melted Swiss cheese with a side of creamy pesto aioli. But the chicken salad pesto is amazing; it will arrive with Provolone cheese oozing out from beneath fresh ciabatta bread. A thick layer of pesto will ooze as well. Open Mon-Sat 6:30 – 6 p.m.; Sundays from 7 a.m. -5 p.m.
