Description: Vail's Legendary Breakfast Spot! The Diner specializes in traditional favorites and regional specialties using family recipes and the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Come by and try the house specialty German Pancake, a sweet crepe, homemade biscuits and sausage gravy, corned beef hash, or fall in love with the Eggs Benedict the owner's father "wooed" his mother with.. Serving up fast, fresh, scratch-made food to nourish your soul. Breakfast all day & Lunch after 11:30. Locally owned & operated. At the West Lionshead Plaza bus stop. The best breakfast in Vail!

Best traditional breakfast in town. Get there early. Can sit at the counter and watch the chefs. Great hash browns.

We were told about the restrurant by a local we were talking to. He said, "One of the best Vail has to offer......esp. for the price." He was right! We had breakfast. But go early. It is small, so you may have to wait.......but it is WELL worth the wait!!! We are only here for a week but we're going back to try lunch. They only serve Breakfast & Lunch.

Family visited The Little Diner recently for breakfast during our week in Vail. I had read the reviews and thought it was worth a try...we were all very impressed. Unique atmosphere, great service, interesting menu, and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend the Little Diner

6 of us ate breakfast here today. We were seated at the bar so could see the chefs working away making our food. The food was delicious and certainly up there with the best breakfasts I have had over many visits to the US. To top it off the service was also friendly and efficient. 6 meals with coffee / juices came to $125, including tip. Will be going back tomorrow.
