Cozy spot to unwind with fondue and crepes!

At the base of the gondola, the Side Door isn't Gstaad, but does have a European feel to it. Mammoth isn't known for its food... but this small cafe has a nice atmosphere and decent food, especially for Mammoth! It's a good choice for cappuccino, lite fare and wine. Service is notoriously slow... read more

At the foot of the free Gondola up to the slopes, this cafe fit the bill for us. The staff was friendly, and hot chocolates were HUGE. Go for the small size, which is plenty. We also indulged in Nutella crepes, but were less impressed with those at $8 and $9 each. The hot chocolate was excellent though, and just... More

Super friendly and accommodating staff, good selection of wines for everyone's taste. We have been at the place several times for lunch and dinner. The quality of the food is consistent. If you are going with young kids and they only eat chicken nuggets or hot dogs, this will not be a good choice. No kids menu. There are plenty... More

It feels welcoming at Side Door and the heated/enclosed patio with its large round tables is great for a family meal and you can even have your dog out there too. Even when I'm not with my family and need a place... More
