Some of employees make great coffee here and they are so nice. Of course one guy doesn't even know what a mocha is....

Great location to come for Après-ski. Small-ish menu for food, but the food is good & the drinks are perfect after a long day on the slopes. Fireplace is nice and warm on those cold days. If it's a warmer day ask to sit outside on the outdoor patio and enjoy watching people "trying" to ski Pepi's Face. It is a sit-down and order kind of place - not a ski lodge.

Comfy, excellent view, great meet up spot, awesome wait staff. Beer, cider, Irish coffee... Better than standard pub food. Amazing fire to kick it after your runs!
