“Worth the climb for the views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We only had cold drinks here as it was a very hot day but the cakes looked delicious, the views were stunning and the waitress was very friendly.

“I really want to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

The lazy way to get here is to get the Hannig cablecar and walk down. (Don't be tempted by the toboggan run unless you are an experienced dangerous sports fan and drunk.) Walking up from the bottom is noble and makes your destination even more worthwhile.
If I live to be 100 I doubt if I shall ever taste better apfel strudel. It is made on the premises and is so wonderful it defies description. If you like this sort of cake and have not been here then put this modest café at the top of your list of places to go. The service is friendly, the coffee is good, the view, as the name indicates, is fabulous.
Sitting on the terrace in the sunshine, looking down on Saas Fee with a coffee and a large piece of their apfel strudel in front of you is my idea of heaven.
Even if it is too cold to sit out it's gemütlich inside. And there are more cakes looking at you...
When you leave Saas Fee it is hard to avoid looking wistfully up the hill to this little café and wish you weren't going.

“My favorite restaurant in Saas Fee, worth the walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Lovely to sit outside here, reached by steep walk up from Saas Fee, or gentle walk down from the top of the Hannig reached by gondola. Excellent homemade fresh food, nice service, lots of friendly walkers with dogs.
