Best place in Zermatt to watch the world go buy. Sit outside in the chairs facing the passing pedestrians. Inside you will find enjoyable comfort food

We walked by another night during happy hour time and it was too crowded and we had our kids with us so we didn't go in. If you mean happy hour specials like reduced prices during a set couple of hours I'm not sure.
