“Good coffee and smoothies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

Loaded Joes in Vail is a little hard to find. If you cross the covered bridge its on your right down some steps by the river and a gift shop. It opens at 7:30 am I believe. The coffee is excellent, much better than Starbucks on the other side of the covered bridge. The strawberry-banana smoothie is great as well. The morning food is much much better than Starbucks selection. They have great bagels of all types. I get a sesame seed bagel with light veggie toasted. The place is very very small. There are a few bar stools at the counter and a couple of seats with some tables. I usually get my stuff to go and sit out on the picnic table by the river. The only negative other than everything in Vail being expensive! is the attitude of most of the employees. I think those over 30 are not welcome :-) Maybe its me. If you can overlook their crappy attitude and lack of personality, its a great place to try esp in the morning.

“Best Latte Anywhere - No really!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

Loaded Joe's in Vail (there are two locations in the Vail Valley) serves the best lattes I have ever had. Yes, I know that sounds superlative but honestly in all my travels - from Seattle to Paris - this is the yummiest latte I have had. The atmosphere is as authentic as the brew and the staff was friendly and helpful. Certainly worth a trip down the stairs.

“Fun little place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

It's not very big, and it's definitely not fancy. But it's right in the middle of the village and they serve a great breakfast. Just don't show up already drinking a Starbucks coffee because they're pretty proud of their own brew.
