Worst customer experience ever. The staff is rude and the coffee is mediocre at best. Staff member refused to wear his mask while he prepared my food. I love to support small local businesses but this place is awful. Never will step foot in here...again. They don't deserve your money. There are other options in Vail.More

Thank you for making us aware of this issue. We terminated multiple employees as a result of this, hence, the delay in our responding. We take great pride in cooking for the public, providing safe and flavorful food and drink for all. I am as...More

Visited Loaded Joe’s at 242 E. Meadow Drive in Vail to grab a quick lunch to go. Joe’s has a local coffee shop feel with a smattering of tables and some comfortable armchairs inside and nice patio seating out front. Service was fine. I ordered...two sandwiches to go: Cuban and Vegetarian. Each came in a sturdy box with chips. Both sandwiches were enjoyable and substantial enough that my husband and I could have easily split one. Tip: Grab a container of the Fat Alley Hot Sauce to give your sandwich a kick.More

Low quality espresso, unfortunately seemed like it sat out for too long and tasted burnt. Enjoyed the offerings at "Two Arrows Coffee" much more! Decent location, but plenty of other coffee shops in the area that are much more worthwhile with better quality coffee &...espresso.More

Times are hard for businesses like this so we thought we would support them. They were essentially deserted at the time of our visit. What a mistake they have employees who learnt their customer service skills at a Siberian prison camp. We purchased, we paid,...we sat outside and complied with all signage only to receive a tirade from a staff member for not complying with a rule that was not posted then harangued about a loose dog that did not belong to us. They deserve to go out of business take your money elsewhere is our advice.More

Very slow service, felt ignored throughout. Waited 10 minutes for a refill on iced tea. Cooks were not wearing masks. Ordered avocado toast with eggs "soft". It arrived with eggs so hard my fork stood up in them. Avocado was rock hard and tomatoes had...no taste. Normally, their food is decent. Today, it was lousy and with service to match, it will be a tough sell to go back.More

Loaded Joe's has moved from its long-time downstairs near the end of the covered bridge to the former Starbuck's location across from the stairs at the transportation station. A big upgrade from Starbucks. Can't ski this season (knee surgery) so my routine was drop of...wive and daughter, park and hang out at Loaded Joe's enjoying a capuccino and using their wifi to check email and read the morning news until I had to leave to avoid parking fees. No hassle about renting table for the price of a capuccion. Only had capuccinos so can't comment on anything else. Great espresso to milk ratio so no need for a double to get coffee flavor (unlike their predecessor in the space). Timing must have been good because my waits were always short. Cheerful staff, warm greetings. Good presentation.More

Great coffee and community scene here. Stop in and grab a Joe and stay awhile. That’s what we do! I get espresso and like it. Better espresso here than at most venues. She gets a Spanish coffee or a chai. Both are solid.

Hi, if I remember correctly it's not just breakfast food. I think they have sandwiches and alcohol like beer and wine too. I don't think you can take the alcohol out of the building. It's small and quant...we just stopped in... More
