This looks like a great place to eat but it seems to be the town's gay meeting place. Depending if the staff want you to stay or not they may have want you want or they may not. Such is the case with ice cream....More

We had a late breakfast there for two days. We very much enjoyed the food and drinks served (very good bread and croissants, fresh orange juice, fruit salad). There is a nice and cosy atmosphere. Owner and staff are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

This should be the top spot in Sion but sadly it continually disappoints. The service is good but the food is average. Go for the view not for the culinary excellence. We've been twice and the food has been decidedly average both times!
