“Best pastries money can buy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Oh Emm Gee -- where to begin. OK, you get to the mountain at 8, get geared up, do a run or two, then come to schwendi for a coffee and a sticky bun or cinnamon roll. All hand made, on premise. YUM. Ski some more, let the lunch crowd come and go, and get back in here around 1:15 for lunch. Specials of the day range from Jambalaya (so good), chili, vegetarian options like a sumptuous quinoa salad....all home made on premise and SO GOOD. But, hey, you're gonna need a dessert with that, right? How 'bout a brownie, chocolate chip cheesecake, or struedel. All home made on premise, and, what? SO GOOD. Nice service, decent amount of tables upstairs, and more tables, couches, and fireplace downstairs. If I'm at WV and you can't find me on the slopes, it's cause I've hunkered down in Schwendi.

“The Schwendi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

Great strudel and hot chocolate at the top of the mountain, especially when you are stuck due to fog. A bit pricey, I pick my battles. Also cool pics of the Kennedys in Waterville.

“Great view, poor service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

What a great little place to warm up, use the restroom and get a hot chocolate and a snack. Unfortunately, it is very pricy and the line is really long because the help was unorganized and slow.

“Warm but crowded”

Hard to move around, steep stairs with ski boots, felt like I was locked in a box. Food was OK but line was slow.

The woman and guys that work there are very unhappy. The food was excellent. The bathrooms were in good condition.
