Taste gourmet comfort food at The Cashmere Slippers in Grand Junction
get cozy at The Cashmere Slippers, Grand Junction’s newest restaurant focused on fresh ingredients and comfort food.
Dave and Jessica Beil, owners, opened up shop on May 22. They’re located at 1230 N. 12th St., right across from Colorado Mesa University and next door to FedEx.
“Our niche is gourmet, quality, comfortable food at a good value,” Dave said.
Menu items span breakfast, lunch and dinner, with standout sandwiches like the Croque Monsieur ($8 for Prosciutto and Swiss cheese, with a hint of Dijon mustard, served on house-baked white bread, covered in a Gruyere-based sauce and served warm). Other must-have options, according to Dave, include the Hot Turkey sandwich ($8 for slow-roasted turkey on homemade white bread served with real mashed potatoes) and the Louisiana Spoon Burger ($8 for ground beef cooked with chicken gumbo and more on a soft potato bun). Russian tea ($2) and fresh-squeezed lemonade ($2-$3) should also be sampled.
Food, including freshly made soup, can be ordered to go as well.
Jessica, a Midwestern native, gets her inspiration from TV chefs like Julia Child and Ina Garten. Customers, in fact, can enjoy watching Julia Child cook on The Cashmere Slippers’ big screen TV, which is mounted to a wall in the restaurant.
The Beils recently moved to Grand Junction, and their son, Jimmy, attends Colorado Mesa University. Their other son, Ryan, is married and lives in North Carolina.
“I love the science of cooking, like learning how to make a pie crust flaky and how to make scrambled eggs fluffy,” Jessica said.
“And I like to eat,” Dave added.
The Cashmere Slippers is open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“We’re closed on Sunday for football,” Jessica said with a grin.
