I always prefer renting a condo or a house when on vacation with kids. I enjoy waking up and making an easy, less expensive breakfast at the house or deciding to stay in and order pizza or make the kids spaghetti for dinner. Vail has a grocery delivery service called Resort Delivery. I love that you can shop and order online and then they deliver right to wherever you are staying in Vail. Resort delivery available in Vail, Minturn, Avon, Beaver Creek, Edwards, Eagle, Aspen and Snowmass.
Hovey And Harrison is a Cafe, bakery and market in Edwards, Colorado. Delizioso is a cheese and meat market in Vail. Coffee, meats, cheese and deli items, stop here and bring delicious treats back to your hotel or condo. Foods of Vail – has ready to heat prepared gourmet dinners and more.
Rocky Mountain Raclette is one of a few services that bring fondue to your home or hotel. They bring all the equipment and food and prepare the meal for you. I love interactive dinners. Raclette dinners are meant to be slower than most meals which creates time for invaluable family time.
The Grazing Fox creates elegant party platters, catering and luxurious box lunches you can take on picnics. We love to snack and graze and so does Olivia. There is something about a great meat and cheese platter that I can resist. Maybe because these are visually stunning they get my taste buds going!
