We ate here twice during a six day stay in Vail in May. This is a small casual place that makes great sandwiches. My wife had a "made-to-order" breakfast of two eggs over-easy, bacon and toast and said it was wonderful. I had the CLUB sandwich for lunch on two different days and we both agreed that it was outstanding -- Turkey, ham, bacon, cheese, honey mustard, etc on a fresh ciabatta roll. It is very small inside with limited seating and fills up fast at lunch time. There is a picnic tables outside for use on sunny days. The staff is friendly and helpful in ordering from the many items listed on the blackboards. Great fast casual sandwich place.

Perfect place for breakfast or lunch while in Vail Village. Great omelets, large sandwiches, crepes, salads and they serve beer and wine. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. They don't lentils but that's really no big deal. Stop by!

Although the staff were friendly the quality of the omelette was not very good. We won't be returning

We stopped into Vail for a quick lunch on the way to Grand Junction. It's small - only a few tables for seating and the line for ordering is elbow to elbow when you are eating. The food was wonderful. Rolls are soft and fresh. The simple salad of mozzarella, tomato and basil was very, very flavorful - must get for a side to split. The pesto was sweet and balanced the balsamic very nicely. So glad we stopped in!

This is a small local sandwich place. It is an easy walk in ski boots from the bottom of the One gondola. Seating can be tight at times - table sharing suggested. I enjoyed the Tree Hugger sandwich. The sandwiches are large enough to share. Prices, for Vail, are reasonable.
