“Great view - sad service”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

The view is great...the food is okay...but if you should arrive after 2:30pm....no food no drinks no anything.... the staff is mostly interested in getting home and is more than ready to kick you out....sorry 2:31 no food / drink service. Even if you come early in the day the service is slow and sad. Time for a change of operators for this ski top restaurant. To great a place to waste on sad / poor operators.

“Come in out of the cold”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

What a fantastic setting. When you are skiing Waterville Valley. you can stop in near the top of the mountain and grab a hot drink and some lunch when it's cold outside. On a sunny day there is a deck. If you want scenery it doesn't get any better than this. The food is okay, but who cares. The scenery will take your breath away.

“Great place to warm up and get some great food.”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

I was surprised by the selection of foods. Not the typical processed ski lodge crap. The soup was fantastic as well as the calzone. Wish we had gone there for breakfast as their pastries looks delicious. Service was helpful and friendly. I felt the prices we're reasonable considering ski area food is a little more costly and more so when you are up on the mountain. Really laid back cabin atmosphere, very comfortable.

“Best pastries money can buy”
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”
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.
