Lonely Planet review
This place is cosy in winter, and offers mountain views from outside tables in summer. It delivers top-notch burgers, pizza, pasta and salad, and is a good-value alternative to the eateries at the Hermitage. Linger to study the old black-and-white pics and mountaineering memorabilia. The menu features lots of organic, free-range and GM-free options as well.
