Rider Cafe & Le Spot Restaurant, Lognan - Grands Montets

Cafe and takeaway at the mid station of Grands Montets

Located at the top of the Lognan cable car, you'll find these 2 eateries at the Grands Montets mid station.

The Rider Cafe is on the upper level (hang a right straight off the gondola and head up the stairs). There's a sunny terrace to enjoy your pizza, buffet or hot meal, and plenty of seating inside too. They do a good tiramisu and pannacotta if you've got room for dessert.

Le Spot takeaway is on the lower level, to the left of the stairs. It has a huge outside terrace and plenty of seating inside too. They serve a variety of hot & cold sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, and they also have a water fountain - ideal for re-filling during the day.

The views from the terrace are great, the Aiguilles Rouges, Mont Blanc and the Chamonix valley below. 

Both are accessible to non-skiers or boarders, so they make a perfect place to meet up with friends or family.

Plus this is the place to be at the end of the season as they have had  some amazing parties, with wing-suit flyers, speed riders, airbags, competitions, ski-joering, DJ's and much more...
