Big Bear Bistro is a small space with bigtime deli sandwiches, and its Vail Village location — a short walk from Vail's Gondola One — makes it close enough for a breakfast sandwich on the way to the slopes or a mid-day break from mountain activities. Big Bear Bistro serves breakfast all day, but this place is known for its gourmet sandwiches that come stacked with quality meats, cheeses and vegetables between slices of organic bread that's baked fresh daily. If you're having too much fun outside to come in for lunch, stop by for exciting apres options including sweet and savory crepes, cheese plates, flatbreads or the charcuterie board. Coffee drinks, wine and beer are also available throughout the day. Although Big Bear Bistro is not open for dinner, the breakfast, lunch and late-afternoon options will keep you more than satisfied until the alpenglow fades from view.
