Best coffee in Les 2 Alpes

A list of the best cafés in resort

featured in News & reviews Author Tracy Wise, Destination Editor Updated

Take a break and recharge with a coffee and a quick bite.

The café break is an integral part of any ski or snowboard holiday giving you a chance to recharge tired legs, soak up the scenery, relax with friends and, of course, reflect on glories from previous runs.

Fortunately, Les Arcs has a number of on-the-hill cafés for a rest during the day along with those in the resorts for that early morning fix.

Slide Planet - The Shackleton Restaurant, 2 Alpes

Slide Planet

Little bar and restaurant tucked inside a ski hire shop that is conveniently close to the Jandri Express. There's some outside seating or settle down inside and enjoy the cosy atmos. As well as coffees they serve cocktails, shots, wine and beers plus a wide menu of classic French dishes.

Kaffein Review, 2 Alpes

Kaffein Café

Open in both winter and summer, this lovely coffee shop makes gourmet coffees, hot and cold drinks and also serves up ice cream in the summer. Located on the main high street it's the perfect stop off on your way, well anywhere... 

Le Chat Gourmand, Les Deux Alpes interior

Le Chat Gourmand

Le Chat Gourmand can be found at the Diable end of the resort, close to the ski front, you can relax in their cosy interior or enjoy the sunny terrace. Serving teas and coffees since the eighties, this place has amazing pastries, homemade chocolates (yes, it's also a chocolatier), homemade jams and a great selection of teas. What's not to love?

La Marjolaine Café

This tea room has a large selection of homemade cakes and pastries, so do not miss this little gem out during your stay, they really do make the best chocolate that goes perfectly with a cup of tea. Buy some chocolates to take home to your nearest and dearest, or just to eat when you're missing the mountains.
