The whole family enjoyed their homemade ice cream after a day of skiing! Would be a great place to grab a sandwich before heading up the slopes also.

If you try to modify your order from any of the sandwiches listed on the board, they have a tough time grasping it. Nice because they can put your sandwich in a pannini press.

Daughter enjoyed her ice cream immensely but can't say the same for the coffee. Knew we were in trouble when 3 of the staff were involved in trying to work out how to use the espresso machine!

This deli is apparently famous for its ice cream, but we had sandwiches instead. We were staying in a Vail timeshare, and had just enjoyed a fabulous lunch elsewhere, when we discovered Joe's Deli.

Joe's Famous Deli has THE BEST breakfast, sandwiches, and of course ICE CREAM. We stayed in Vail for several days in July and we ate at Joe's at least one time per day. DELICIOUS!!

Wish we had more time to sample some of their other offerings. Just had the ice cream, homemade and billed as "voted best in Vail". Being something of an ice cream snob, I have to say this was certainly one of the creamiest, tastiest flavors I ever had.
