Description: Our remodel is in full swing and our new tentative opening date is June 30th. Sorry for the delay. Be sure to check out our progress on Facebook. We hope to see you soon! Vail's Legendary Breakfast Spot! Open daily from 7:00 'ish' PM To around 2:00 PM. 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!

“Superb food, great location”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

The little diner gave us three great breakfasts before our long day of skiing. Its location is perfect, right in the middle of Lionshead village. I recommend an omelet or pancakes with fresh fruit. I haven't had a breakfast like that in a long time!

“Good breakfast option in Vail”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

I have to agree 100% with a previous reviewer munchandmove. We had the same curt behavior from a female server perhaps owners wife

Also agree 100% on how delicious Dutch style pancake is -huge and fluffy and moist in the middle, wonderful with the apple filling. Coffee is fair. Counter service only.

“Surprised to have a 20% gratuity added to breakfast at a diner for 5 people.”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

The diner was okay but not great. The order did not come out as we ordered and the eggs benedict was a mistake to have ordered. Probably the place to grab a quick coffee and egg sandwich before skiing.
