We stopped here for ice cream two afternoons; such a delicious treat! As an ice cream connoisseur, I'd say this definitely exceeded my expectations. That said, it was a haven for families with 5+ kids so the wait took some time, especially when the kids wanted multiple samples :-) Not a quick stop but worth it!

Wanting to save a bit of money on lunch in Vail, we ducked down the stairs below street level to find a tiny, six-table treasure of fantastic deli sandwiches and homemade ice creams and sorbets. My chicken sandwich had thinly sliced purple onions, roasted bell peppers, and what looked like fresh basil and pine nuts, toasted on focaccia bread. It... More

Easy and great sandwiches! They also have ice cream. Expect to pay a bit more for food than most places but my husband and I split breakfast and lunches to help with expenses. We could always get something else if we wanted.

Ok, it was a very hot day in Vail. But, I would still expect the ice cream to be at the correct temperature. My kids were very disappointed when after the 5th or 6th lick the whole lot fell on the ground. I would go back as I know lots of people who love this place but, will visit on... More

Grabbed breakfast here before rafting. Was a quick, inexpensive for Vail, breakfast. The breakfast sandwich on foccica was not great. Asked for no cheese, but they put cheese on it. Did not find out until after we left and were on the way to raft. So did not enjoy that sandwich. We also go the Huevos Ranchero burrito. It was... More

This was an unexpected hoot when my teen son and I stopped in for ice cream...the music playing was this gangsta rap (clean, no swear words, dont worry Boss), and the two young boys working were so much fun - This made our day - who would have thought that "stuffy" Vail would have such a down to earth cool...

Visited this deli a few times while in Vail. Great sandwiches and if you have room....many flavors of ice cream. Everything I ordered was fresh and tasty. Give it a try for a reasonable meal in Vail.

Casual but quick with lots of good sandwich options. My go-to when I want a quick lunch off the mountain.
