Food and ambience

Location and contact

A place, a soul a love story! Nested right in the heart of the village of Vallorcine, in 15 km from Chamonix in the feet of tracks, the Coffee Counter is a place where we like the Authenticity ... Dishes, prepared in the kitchen "workshop" opened on the room, are delicious, applied, consisted of transalpine fresh products, worked there of the day. We serve there, among others, big with vitamins salads, the "Mystery", the speciality of the house compound of reblochon melted in morels and horns of plenty, either delicious and frugal prime rib served with fresh, crisp vegetables ... The atmosphere which reigns is the one there of these precious moments which we like: taste a simmered tasty dish

We had a drink after skiing, once again pleasant atmosphere, good service, the cost of our drinks was quite expensive, but they have a captive clientele being at the end of the Home Ski Run. A very pleasant experience.
