A word from Après Ski Chalet at Café Select
Welcome to our Après Ski Chalet at Café Select open everyday from 7 pm. In the winter months we serve Fondue & Raclette in our cozy backroom alpine lodge behind our kitchen. We also offer our regular menu items. We generally have two seatings (7pm and 9 pm). Unfortunately due to our current POS system we temporarily can only take cash. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I saw Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) dine at this establishment and knew I wanted to eat here. I was not disappointed with the food. It was delicious. The only down side to this back restaurant is it only accepts cash while the front restaurant takes credit cards and both serve the same menu minus the fondue. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family"

  • "My best friend & I celebrated her birthday here, it was a last minute Open Table find but I'm so happy this is was my final pick. We dined in the intimate & charming back room. It was really fun walking through the kitchen, it felt special & very Narnia-like. The portions were good, the food was delicious, especially the fondue, the female table servers were super nice & very attentive but the Maitre'D & kitchen staff could be friendlier & restroom needs air freshener. Highly recommended."

  • "A hidden gem, one of a kind feature being the fondue, seated in a fabulous atmosphere. It all works and works well. Service is very good, but our waitress was not quite familiar with all the drink ingredients and by listening to the table next to us, didn't seam she understood their question about the food being vegetarian. I saw this aired on Barefoot Contessa and its exactly as aired, not made up special for her. Its a nice cozy, casual setting that you would want to stay for hours. I'd return numerous time to try more menu items. Overall the menu looks outstanding and authentic, Well priced too !"

  • "Great spot for a first date if you are looking to impress. This wasn't a first date but my wife and I still enjoyed it after our decade of being together. The white truffle fondue is very good."

  • "When I got to Cafe Select, I was sort of excited to walk through the restaurant and on into the kitchen. Just beyond was the door to the other small dining room where I was to enjoy some good fondue. I was excited to see what felt like something hidden and secret. I was so disappointed to walk into a room that felt like it was once a bad college bar. The tables were cheap, the decor felt hurried, and overall it was like eating in a very large storage room. The food was good and I am happy to say they have quite a few very good vegetarian options. The wine, however, wasn't worth the calories. Overall, I don't think i'll be going back."

  • "Very cozy nice place with great decor and good food. I'll definitely be back and will still try to get into the après ski chalet. The cheese fondue is exquisite"

  • "This restaurant is fantastic. Cute place with great decor and good food and drinks. The only negative to this dining experience was that even after confirming our reservation day of, the restaurant overbooked the "après ski" room which was the reason we reserved at this restaurant and sat us in the main dining area even though we arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation. They did comp every guest at my table 1 drink as an apology and we're very nice about the entire situation. Outside of that, great place, I'll definitely be back and will still try to get into the après ski chalet."

  • "The chef Ingrid is a total goddess and makes the best german and Swiss food I've ever had. And that includes The times I've been in both those countries. Her cheese fondue is exquisite and I'd highly recommend her brown beer fondue special. Also, if it's available, her charcuterie plate is delicious and her apple strudel can only be defined as definitive."

  • "The secret backroom was exciting to go to, but my friend and I were the only ones there! It only has 3 tables so it was pretty quiet. The food is over priced and its cash only."

  • "My girlfriend and I are both from Switzerland and from time to time have a craving for authentic Swiss cusisine. Cafe Select delivers great food everytime and the truffle fondue we had was truly excellent. The only criticism we have is that the back room, all tough nicely decorated, is way too cold. The main dining room provides a much better Fonduestübli experience."
