Very relaxed, casual deli for eat in or take out. We loved the sandwiches with all fresh ingredients, good bread, and healthy vegetarian choices. Then went back twice more and bought sandwiches for the trail, all excellent and very convenient, a bit pricey by hometown standards, but a bargain for Vail. Might be a little hard to find down a...

For 43 USD we got two Sandwiches, a salad and two borles of water. Salad was two days old. One sandwich was so plain and tasteless, we could not find the roastbeef inside. Go elswhere.

The sandwiches are DELICIOUS. I wish I could go back to eat now. I got the tuna, my boyfriend got the ruben, definitely a must.

Typicla deli with few tables, kind of hidden in a lower level. Not much atmosphere but decent made to order sandwiches, soup and ice cream at reasonable price. Good for a quick bite.

It's a deli with a few tables. I went for the ice cream sundae. The lady went from handling cash straight to handling a peeled banana with her fingers. GROSS!!! The ice cream flavors were bland. I couldn't tell the cappuccino flavor had any coffee/espresso. The mint didn't taste like mint. The cheesecake was oddly sour. The only reason it's... More

Stopped in last Wednesday and picked up some sandwiches for a picnic. Ruben, Italian, Ham and Cheese and Pastrami. Also some Cole Slaw, Fresh Fruit and Brownies. Everything was delicious. A little pricy but this is Vail. The staff was very friendly.

I am in Vail with my elder parents and my mom wanted a lighter meal for dinner, we chose this deli based on reviews. Honestly, it was just ok. The sandwiches were expensive ($10 for a whole and 6.50 for a half) and nothing special about them. My mom had the tuna salad and it is obvious they are stretching... More

After a nice hike, we went to this deli place. Sandwiches were really tasty, hot italian, big tuna, vegetarian options, etc. It is just a small place (max occupancy is 42). Ice cream are being served too.

Sandwiches were great! Loved the vegetarian and gluten free options. That's hard to find at a sandwich shop. The location is super convenient- right in Vail Village. Don't be intimidated by having to go downstairs. There are a few tables and chairs- but mostly this is a grab-and-go place. I wish there were some tables and chairs or picnic tables... More

I had the best ice cream I think I've ever had here. It was homemade, and they had amazingly unique flavors. My husband had a deli sandwich which he said was also amazing. Great place to stop for a quick bite!
