But the fun doesn’t just stop at racing down the slopes and dancing on the tables at La Folie Douce; make sure you visit these brunch spots during your stay at this beautiful mountain town.

Maison Chevallot

The local residents’ daily bakery stop, Maison Chevallot depicts what can only be described as une boulangerie des rêves, with its classical and honest French tone revealing why this country is hailed a the king of the pâtisserie. A large spread of the prettiest pastries line the windows that look too intricately amazing to even be edible. Spellbound by the tantalizing lure of perfectly baked goods, patrons have no other option than to enter and select a treat from amidst the pain au chocolats and croissants.

Crêperie Grand Marnier

Located conveniently close to the central ski lifts at Rond Point des Pistes, the Grand Marnier Crêperie is an ideal stop on your way to the slopes. More sophisticated and satisfying than any American pancake breakfast, watch your crêpe be crafted in front of you and choose from a multitude of toppings sweet or savoury. From a simple sprinkling of sugar to an indulgent hazelnut praline with sliced banana, be sure to add Grand Marnier liqueur for that extra pizazz to kick off the day

Moris Pub

If a continental style breakfast isn’t for you, sink your teeth into a full English breakfast at the Moris Pub. One of the oldest buildings in Val d’Isère (physically evident due to its rustic and slightly dilapidated exterior), the Moris Pub has more to offer than just beer, drinking games and good quality bar snacks. If you’re missing a home-style fry up look no further than here, where the range of breakfast favourites are sure to satisfy your breakfast cravings. Complete with an historically richer story than meets the eye, the Moris is pleasingly located opposite Val d’Isère’s iconic and picturesque church.
