Good breakfast and lunch

Came here for lunch the other day and left impressed. We split a salad and a crepe and that was plenty for the two of us. The crepes are quite large. If you come for just dessert crepes then you will be impressed, there were too many to choose from.

Had lunch at this restaurant/café in the village on our vacation. The food was decent, the service was friendly but a bit slow (despite having few patrons at the place at that hour), and the prices were steep in light of what they served. I liked the ambiance/atmosphere, but I'd categorize this restaurant as one of those "vacation food traps"... More

Cozy and romantic little place unexpected in the Mammoth village area. We sat in the back bar area. The appetizers were really good and the wine selection and cocktails abundant! Would like to come back again to hang out and try more of the food! Paired with a drink of course!

We love to have dinner in town and stop in for a coffee and crepe dessert. Their service is typical for Mammoth and somewhat spotty but it's always a good time

Stopped in for a light meal. Service was lacking; only one server for the entire restaurant. Although the restaurant specializes in crepes--ours was dry and just plain not very good. Side salad was good;)

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 excellent. I had a glass... 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
