This vey small place offers a decent, quick breakfast with pretty good coffee. You stand in line to order and they bring food to your table. Oatmeal is instant and omelets (lots of ingredients to mix and match) are good, if not great. Not cheap, but reasonable by Vail standards. You can eat outside in small patio area if weather is nice.

Walked past the small restaurant several times walking from Tivoli Lodge into Vail and finally decided to give it a try. Sure glad we did. Very welcoming staff - almost seems like a family-run restaurant.

I had the Croissant French Toast - great take on a breakfast staple. Loved the croissant instead of the typical "toast" variety. Generous supply of what seemed to be fresh fruits and just the right amount of maple syrup. And elegantly presented!

My wife had the breakfast sandwich on a croissant with ham - and thought it was great.

We highly recommend this spot just off the top of Bridge Street.

My family stopped here after our segway tour. My tuna salad sandwich on a croissant was one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had. My wife had the BLAT and loved hers as well. We sat out front in the beautiful weather and I enjoyed a beer while my wife enjoyed a mimosa. Friendly staff. Can’t wait to go back.
