Can't go wrong with a coffee, iced or cold, from Loaded Joe's. If only they had some sort of fan to help cool the place down in the summer. However, you can take drink out and sit by the river.

We had dinner reservations and wanted a casual before dinner drink. We were wandering around and saw their sign so we stopped in. It was quaint and offered what we were looking for. The wait staff was helpful and pleasant and the price was right. Based on what we read on the menu boards, we'll probably go back for breakfast.... More

This is a very small place with good coffee. We stopped for breakfast and had a great bagel sandwich with eggs and ham. Great price especially for Vail. I recommend for sure.

We stopped here for breakfast and found a hidden gem. It is downstairs near the footbridge and is easily missed when it is busy in Vail. They serve food all day long and it is very reasonably priced, which is not something you tend to find in Vail, so it was a breath of fresh air to find that.

Loaded Joes is a combination bar and coffee shop with light fare. But we had none of those things. We stopped in for the smoothies and were not disappointed. They were hand made from fresh fruit. Expect to pay $5-$7 per smoothie. We recommend the stop.

Loaded Joe's is a perfect little place to enjoy a delicious breakfast as well as a perfect cup of your favorite coffee or latte. The staff were very friendly and made sure that I was set before heading on my way. It has an indoor and outdoor seating area, so it is nice to have the option to enjoy your... More

We have missed this hidden gem on other trips to Vail but not this time. This tiny coffee shop has a good selection of hot and cold coffee along with some snacks. It was very busy but we were served fairly fast. My only complaint is that it was very warm that day so we waited outside until our order... More

We stopped in for a quick coffee before driving to Glenwood Springs. Service was prompt and civil. Coffee was great. (Spanish Coffee, Vanilla Latte, Espresso). There was a bit of a wait time, but the coffee was wonderful and just what we needed after a long day in the cold. Looked like they also had alcohol and some coffee shop... More

Don't see why people rate this place very high other than for price. Sporadic service and cramped quarters with no view makes this place a No Go for me. Up the street on the other side is another Joe's with great breakfasts and wonderful ice cream.

This is the worst customer service I have seen in vail. I would never visit this place again. The place was not busy. When I asked what they had for soup the employee said "read the sign"

Kent B, Owner at Loaded Joe's - Vail, responded to this review

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We do not serve soup at this location nor would we have it listed on any sign. I wonder if you have us confused with a different business?? There are similarly named businesses in our area and this is not uncommon. If, however, you do not have us confused and... More
