Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, Takeout
Description: Papillon is now closed at this address. Tripadvisor won't remove our listing for reasons they prefer to keep to themselves. Perhaps they too hope we'll re-open?! Anyway, a big thankyou to all of our lovely customers! We've started a new speciality coffee roastery in Chamonix called Cafes Moody - we'll be selling our freshly roasted beans, brewed coffee drinks and accessories at the Chamonix market on Saturdays - hope to see you all there soon!

“Vegetarian takeout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Vegans will have a bit of a tough run in Chamonix, and this little take out place was a godsend. Wonderful salads and sandwiches, with a menu that changed daily, and service with a smile. Even carnivores will enjoy the offerings. If they only had a few tables it would be absolutely perfect.

“Vegetarian/vegan friendly, has soy milk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Great little cafe with a huge array of vegetarian and vegan friendly options including select boutique grocery items. Soy milk available for coffees etc. Friendly English-speaking staff. Not a dine-in type establishment but definitely the healthiest and tastiest takeaway fare in Chamonix!

“A wonderful takeaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is a wonderful establishment which deserves its excellent reviews. The owners and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The food is outstanding: after one take-away meal of curried chicken, potatoes and vegetables (which all heated up beautifully in our chalet's microwave), we returned the next day for chili, potatoes and vegies, another day for salad dishes and, at the end of our visit to Chamonix, salads for our train journey.

Both residents and tourists in Chamonix are fortunate to have such a takeaway--a welcome treat if the weather is inclement and you just don't want to leave your chalet in the evening to dine out.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate and would also welcome a French dish or two on the menu.

“Tasty takeaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We visited Papillon this lunchtime and it was really tasty, enjoyed it so much. I had the plat du jour which was salmon
with rice and stir fried veg - it was so good. We took it away and ate it in the square by the mairie - it was a perfect
sunny day in Chamonix with delicious food. It is a great find, worth the short walk from the centre - will definitely go
back.

“Wow to this takeaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Run by Brits, the chef here seriously knows his spicing, beautiful curries, dhals and much more besides. After the cheese and pasta/pizza fest that is Chamonix, this was a very welcome change and genuinely one of the best takeaways I've ever had. Reasonably priced too for the quality of the food. They also sell a host of other interesting foods/drinks. Wish we could bring it back to the UK! Food stays really hot for getting it back to your hotel/apartment. Top notch.
