You have not truly tasted home-baked goodness until you bite into one of Avon Bakery & Deli’s signature, cranberry-apricot scones. As the bakery’s doors open each morning, loyal customers come early just for a chance to get one.

At any given time during the day, the bakery shop radiates a heady aroma of freshly baked artisan, handcrafted breads, especially on 2 For Tuesdays, one of the bakery’s busiest days during the week. Since opening in 2000, Avon Bakery & Deli has delighted the Vail Valley with its house-made breads, scones, cookies and brownies.

Each baked good is made with certified organic flour and the owner’s philosophy of serving locals the best-quality food featuring ingredients from local Colorado farmers and businesses.
