What a cute cafe! Friendly service and a fantastic view out the window. I had a tasty muffin and coffee, my friend enjoyed her breakfast sandwich. I'd definitely stop in again next time I pass through.

Stopped here while waiting for the greyhound and had an unexpectedly delicious breakfast sandwich and cappuccino. Took some fresh baked goods for the road too. Friendly service, great view of the mountains out the window.

We've stopped here 3 times for a nice warm Starbucks coffee beverage after a brisk summer morning on the gondola. Got some cookies one time, they were rather stale and not worth the calories. But if you are in need of a caramel macchioto or...More
