Excellent Food & Wine, but a Little Pricey

My wife and I had dinner here last night after the July 5th Fireworks show In the Village. They normally close at 9 pm, but they stayed open late after the fireworks to accommodate those looking for dinner or a late night snack. We both ordered crepes and spicy chicken bean soup and both were... read more

Jacob, our waiter, and his sister (I'm sorry, I forgot your name) were both delightful and the food was wonderful! We were pleasantly surprised that there was a special happy hour menu from three to six, and since we got there just before six, we were able to order off it. My husband had a pastrami sandwich and soup, and... More

Side door is tucked away in the Village, it is very intimate with a beautiful selection of wines displayed, they have acoustic guitar entertainment that was so good we thought it was a soundtrack . They specialise in Panninis and Salads and cheese platters, service is great with friendly accomodating waiters. Highly recommend for a fun night out.

A group of 12 of us stopped here for lunch. It was fantastic! We enjoyed delicious panini sandwiches and salads. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this cute little place. The service was great! Sorry we discovered it on the last day of our stay.

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 so do come prepared to linger.t

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
