The Little Diner in Vail, Colorado

Tucked away in Lionshead, Vail, sits a special little place called the Little Diner. When visiting a place like Vail, it’s difficult to avoid the granola-bar-for-breakfast route to maximize time on those amazing slopes, but this restaurant is worth the quick trip for some much-needed sustenance.

The menu here features several omelets with a whole host of mix-ins. I opted for the veggie with broccoli, bell peppers, onion, tomato, mushroom, scallions and cheddar served with hash browns and wheat toast. For $10.95, this portion is a steal; this omelette could have easily been seven eggs. The hash browns are unfairly good..meaning, you plan on only having one bite and you end up polishing them all off.

Paul chose the steak and egg wedge, served with thinly sliced Steak, two fried eggs, potatoes and cheese on a sub roll, which he exclaimed was the “best breakfast sandwich he’s had”. To be fair, this was after a week of nothing but granola bar and toaster oven bagel breakfasts, so the bar wasn’t set high. Nonetheless, he loved his dish.

Though our portions were massive, we couldn’t leave without ordering a crepe filled with hazelnut chocolate and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It was delicious, obviously. There was a plethora of crepe options from savory to sweet to satisfy all kinds of tastes.
