We had baguettes delivered to our chalet numerous times for us to take up the mountain for lunch. A great selection which had something for everyone.

Yummy. Stayed for an hour or so whilst my boyfriend was skiing, didn’t mean to but it was so nice to have a quiet coffee and an (unexpected!) early lunch. It’s very small so not really suitable for groups as only seats 8 people! Lovely...More

My partner had a surprise birthday cake made here, I don’t normally like too much chocolate, but the cake was amazing, and not a huge price for such a nice cake
