“Better than Starbucks and a bargain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

After skiing Vail my husband and teenager and I would park our skis and walk downstairs to the warm and inviting coffee shop called Loaded Joes. They have a large selection of expresso, cappachinos and gourmet tea's also hot cider and beer and liquor! All there hot and cold drinks are freshly prepared and less expensive than Starbucks. For example My husband had an Americano, son had a Spanish Coffee and I had a hot cider with a shot of Tuacan and whip cream yum! The cost for these 3 fancy drinks was around $15.00. However most days for 3 fancy coffees w/o liquor would be only around $10. There is a cute counter service and a few benches where one can sit and relax. The place is small and cozy with a hip vibe. Friendly young snowboarders and skiers and locals frequent the place. There was nice jazz or upbeat background music playing and free Wi Fi! For Vail this place is a bargain and perfect after skiing!

“Brew And beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

I like a place I can get a coffee in the morning and then a beer après ski. This is a place that feels like where the locals get their coffee. Always nice to support a local business verses a chain like Starbucks!

“Best breakfast in Vail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Coffee in the US is different to coffee in Australia. This coffee is just like the best coffee you can get in Australia...
Breaky wraps are outstanding, going back again tomorrow!!
Great service, fun little spot. Certainly worth stopping in!

“coffee house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A great coffee house located just on your way out of town to the transport hub. Great to catch up for a debrief on the days activities over a spot of coffee.
