We came to the beautiful city of Chamonix for our summer holiday of August this year. I would describe eating out with our family as a 'painful experience' as we are all very fussy and will only eat certain foods. After looking on trip advisor, however, were surprised to see that Papillon, a small take away restaurant, in the centre... More

We followed online advice to find Papillon for fresh takeaway food and good coffee. For a couple of travelling Aussies, their Flat White coffee was excellent. It was also free as a short promotion for their new coffee blend! The takeaway chick pea salad was fresh and delicious, a nice contrast to the heavy local cuisine of potatoes and cheese.

We just loved this take away place. We probably got dinner from them three times during our week stay. It was a great alternative to the bread filled meals we had every other day. Highly recommend!

Worthy of its great reviews. Everything is fresh and tasty. Delicious salads, curry's and cupcakes! The homemade lemonade hits the spot on a hot Chamonix day. Great espresso macchiato too.

Its difficult to find gluten free food in Chamonix unless it's an expensive restaurant but Papillion do great takeaway food for lunch or dinner, hot, or cold to heat later. It's so versatile, the menu is extensive for coeliacs, vegetarians, nut allergies and more. The staff there are native English but fluent French speakers making it easy for locals and... More

We tried this today based on TripAdvisor reviews and loved it. It's a welcome change of pace from the region's heartier dishes. The service was great and the food delicious. We will definitely return here later this week.

When you looking for the food which is different from the tourist type foods. This is the place to try. Healthy but tasty and nourishing. We ordered twice in our stay.

After seeing the excellent reviews, we visited Papillon early in our stay in Chamonix. We ordered the Tofu noodles, Chicken noodles, Chicken Coconut curry and Meatballs in tomato sauce (rice/potatoes not included and need to be ordered as a side dish). Unfortunately the meatballs had just sold out so we decided to share the other three dishes rather than order... More
