Visitor comments

  • "This is just what you need at the top of Europe. Best hot chocolate, best coffee and most delicious crepes ever. Enjoying the top views with best beverage is priceless. This is a must go; do not miss it." - Trip Advisor
  • "A cozy dining room with a good selection of freshly made sandwiches as well as hot food and drinks available. Crowded but we were lucky to find a table and enjoyed a refreshing lunch and hot drink. Tourist prices but the incredible scenery makes it worth every cent." - Trip Advisor
