Fodor's Review

This cozy, very personable café/restaurant has big picture windows for grand views of the outside and all sorts of interesting mountaineering memorabilia and photos to peruse inside. There's a big roaring fire to keep you warm in winter. The meals are flavorful, hearty, and wholesome and they source a lot of organic produce, including organic wines and coffee (if you take it with milk, that's organic, too!). A popular option is their Mountaineers' Breakfast—nitrate-free

bacon, free-range eggs, sausages, tomato, mushrooms, hash browns, and ciabatta—served all day. Fresh burgers and pizza are a specialty here, too. The waitstaff are friendly and the owners are likely to check that you're being well looked after.
