If you travel to the area of Chamonix – Mont Blanc in France, DON’T MISS this restaurant!

Okay, so it looks cold.  But … how can you turn away from that view?  How many people have ever eaten a meal with a setting like that?  You can get a snack or a lunch here on your way up Mont Blanc.  It is situated on the summit of Brévent

above the town of Chamonix.  Chamonix is a ski resort area near the junction of France, Switzerland, and Italy.  Mont Blanc is the highest summit in the Alps.  Cable cars take people all of the way up the mountain and visit several nearby peaks with panoramic views, such as Le Brevent.

I was in Chamonix in 1997 and I took the cable car up to the Aiguille du Midi which is the top station of Mont Blanc.

I wish I’d had the opportunity to visit this restaurant while I was there.  The views can’t be replicated anywhere else.  I understand that they serve regional cuisine and offer classics such as “grandmother’s roast chicken”.  One of the dessert’s that they offer sounds like heaven.  It is called chocolate Dôme with spiced caramel.  Another great reason to stop for a coffee and dessert!!  Here is the official contact information:
