Avon Bakery and Deli

Voted best deli in 2010, the Avon Bakery & Deli has been a long standing staple of excellence for both food and service in Vail Valley. Founded in 2000, ABD set out to be the best bakery in the Vail Valley. Many of the fine dining establishments from Eagle to Edwards to Vail all use the Avon Bakery & Deli’s Breads every day.

A note about their Artisan Breads: they are made each day with certified organic flours, milled according to the California Organic Foods Act of 1990. Organic flour is the unique quality of the Avon Bakery & Deli. Most bakeries bake breads using low quality flour that contain pesticides and bleach, but this deli does not agree with that approach at all. They believe that by producing the best quality food possible, they are not only respecting their customers and what fuels their bodies, but also setting the bar for excellence in great healthy food.


Big Bear Bistro

Owned and operated by long-time locals, the Big Bear Bistro is conveniently located at the very top of Bridge Street and only steps from the Vista Bahn.  Offering the best gourmet sandwiches in Vail Valley, featuring Boar’s Head meats, fresh veggies and organic bread baked fresh daily.  Big Bear strives to use locally sourced, natural or organic ingredients to produce the best breakfast burritos, salads, wraps and sandwiches, soups and chiles, cheese plates and assorted appetizers for your dining pleasure.

Located on Bridge Street, Joe’s Famous Deli has some of the best Panini’s around! Pesto, mozzarella, tomato and balsamic vinegar is deli-icious.  The sandwiches are huge and you may not fit back into your ski pants if you eat the whole thing, but go for it anyway!  Heck, you might as well go all out and get one of their home-made ice cream cones to0.
