This was one of the BEST Breakfasts my family has ever had. I had a pancake and it was delicious, we were sorry we didn't try this place sooner on our trip. We had at least 4 members of the staff check on us during...our meal.More
After several extravagant and expensive meals we were in need of some home style cooking at reasonable prices. This got the spot and we were able to meet up with our kids who were off skiing the mountain for lunch. A short walk from Gondola...19 and perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch.
A quick call and we were able to make reservations, the worked hard to fit us in.
The peanut butter spiked hot chocolate is delicious.
Food was excellent!More
The food here is really tasty with big portion sizes to offset the standard high prices for Vail restaurants. Service is friendly and prompt. The only part I didn’t enjoy was the coffee, which tasted burned. But the food more than made up for it!
Had an opportunity to have breakfast here while on our family trip to Vail. The food and the wait staff were outstanding. So glad we were able to snag a reservation at the last minute. Will certainly return.
Wow.. we were told about this place from a guy that i met in the hot tub, we decided to give it a try. After the first time, we have been having breakfast there every day. this place is simply perfect. Their eggs Benedict is...a signature, you feel that you already miss it just after you leave the restaurant.
The place needs a booking though. Highly recommendedMore
While in Vail for our Christmas vacation, my wife and two adult sons decided to go here for lunch one day. Reviews were good so we decided to give it a try.
I will have to say it lives up to it’s name as max...capacity is 70 people and I’m not sure how they would get that many in there. Lol We were able to get reservations that morning for lunch which was kind of surprising.
It is set up like a miniature diner. The place was bustling with servers and patrons. We got seated right away. Service was outstanding. There was nothing we lacked for. The food was incredible. Two of us had breakfast and two of us lunch. My wife got the Eggs Benedict. She is a connoisseur of that and said that was the best she has ever had. My oldest son got the Pannekoeken which he said was fantastic. Me and my other son got a burger and the Philly steak and both were great.
In my opinion this place hit on all points. The only downside I can think of is that their restrooms are the public restrooms for the village. So it can be a wait to get in.
We would definitely go back.More
Visited on honeymoon, the eggs benedict was to die for, best I’ve ever had. My wife got the biscuits and gravy and loved them too! The cherry on top was the pancake we shared at the end. So fluffy and delicious. You must get them...when you go. We spoke with some of the servers and the owner too, they were very humble and not just boasting they were the best, etc. Great sign of a place that knows its good but knows it doesn’t need to boast about it. If you are in Vail, near Vail or even passing through Vail you need to stop in to the Little Diner and get some of their food.More
there is a reason they're at the top of the list of breakfast places in Vail. Do not miss out on this little gem in Lions Head. Miriam was our server and provided the kind of prompt service you want when hungry for breakfast and...steered us in the right direction. I had the corned beef hash and may have to return tomorrow for an encore meal!
Be sure to check the website and book online with them to avoid long waits.More
DO NOT take the 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor to heart. I had a bacon breakfast burrito. The amount of bacon MAYBE would have covered my thumb nail. I've never had a more bland, tasteless burrito in my life. I asked for salsa and even the...salsa was flavorless. Tomatoes, and onions. The whole cup had one (1) piece of either jalapeno or green chile. Thankfully my wife saved me a bite of her bacon or I would have never gotten a real taste of this (self proclaimed) "Legendary" breakfast spot. The hash browns are good. Can't wait to drive right by this place next time through Vail.More
