This was our 2nd trip to Vail & remembered Loaded Joe's from our first visit. Coffee is great as are the hot chocolates. The bagels and sandwiches are fresh and tasty. There isn't much seating but people aren't usually in there dining for long so you don't have to wait long. Will definitely be back next time we are in... More

Great place to stop and grab a warm drink after a day on the mountain. Tasty lattes, and my boys love the hot chocolate. Tucked down steps on the left as you are about to leave the village via the covered bridge. Steps from Gore Creek. Very cool vibe.

I've been here a few times for drinks and they have a decent bottle selection for a good cheap price. Atmosphere is great. You will miss it while just walking by. look for the covered bridge store and you will find the entrance to the left. It's small and typically busy after 4.

Solid coffee shop at the base of vail. Not the easiest to find its down the stairs to the right of the covered bridge as you're walking towards Pepi's. Sandwiches are good if a bit lacking in meat and coffee is the best you'll find quickly at the base. Breakfast burritos are bomb. It's as pricey as you'd expect at... More

The title says it all - this guy made the best vanilla latte I've ever had. Order and enjoy! We had breakfast sandwiches that were average at best, but oh, that coffee......!

Everything here is pretty tasty, and the service is friendly enough. It can get crowded in the small space, but it's worth pushing through.

Stopped in for an afternoon coffee. Fun atmosphere, a lot of options, and delicious coffee. We had the dirty nutty Irishman and would recommend it.

This is a small subterranean café that fortunately was open when the rest of Vail was closed. The food is simple but tasty; the coffee is a bit better than average. The breakfast burritos are the specialty and worth a visit.
