Breakfast in Chamonix: the most important meal of the day

pancakesBreakfast in Chamonix is hard to find! When you book your trip to Chamonix for a week of skiing or an epic summit in the Mont Blanc Massif or just to wander the quaint streets and hillsides, you are not necessarily thinking of how you are going to start your day.

France’s breakfast pastries are well known and beloved by locals and tourists alike!  However, to get the fuel you need to tackle all of the adventures that this amazing town has to offer, Bighorn Bistro and Bakery has the breakfast that gets you where you need to go.

spoonMy family and I first realized this gap in the dining market years ago when we were just kids and my parents were desperately trying to get some food in our bellies before subjecting us to hours on the ski hill!  Years later, once we were grown and tackling our own mountain adventures this niche presented itself again and we began to formulate a plan to open Bighorn Bistro.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when you about to go burn 2000 calories on the hill!  Whether you are trying to feed your family or if you are a mountain guide and you need to get your clients going for their daily adventures, Bighorn is a good place to start.

When you sit down at a diner anywhere in America you have a very good idea what you will find.  Wholesome food, maple syrup, sweet and savory options and of course a bottomless cup of drip coffee!  We have tried to emulate this experience with the fundamental difference being our determination to home make everything and provide comfortable seating for a breakfast that could last hours.

Bighorn falls in the cross section between a bohemian Portland, Oregon coffee shop and a Jackson Hole, Wyoming brunch restaurant.

We offer a full breakfast all week starting at 10am during the summer and inter-seasons and 9am during the winter season.  Bighorn Bistro’s breakfast is a unique take on a traditional American brunch complete with Eggs Benedict, Buttermilk Pancakes and more.  Our dishes are all homemade and geared to get you up the mountains all day!
