Thirty seven years ago last month I sat at this very spot and ate a sandwich and read the housing ads as I tried to figure out where I was to fit into my new home. The Village Cafe in the Old Village Center Inn aka the seven level lodge is long gone now, where you could execute a hockey skate stop and eat pizza by the slice or healthy brown rice teriyaki wraps immediately slope-side. Except for Corbett’s Cabin, up top, the Alpenhof and the Mangy Moose including RMO, the old Village vibe is gone so that I was prepared to rant here about New West postmodern architecture and cuisine in mourning of all we’ve lost. But do you know what? This place isn’t bad! There’s more wood inside than I expected and the freshly baked goods and friendly staff won me. Yes, $3.50 is steep even for a large cookie, though it was delicious. But $5 for a large slice of pepperoni pizza was what we paid at the VC! I must warn you, it’s a thin crust and if it sits under the heat lamp for a while, it will have the texture thereof but ideally there will be so much traffic you’ll have a fresh slice! And it’s all about convenience. By all means go have a sit down full restaurant lunch if you’re not eager to get back on the piste but for a quick, delicious lunch, this has all but replaced the beloved VC of memory. It gets the job done well and sits slope-side just as I’d hoped. And that’s without being located in the four seasons or the teton club.
