No where to sit but a bench outside. But who cares when the food is so obviously made on the premises and tastes so delicious. Tried the soup on 2 different days and delicious both times. Great food a little out of the centre but...More

Grabbed a take out from this friendly little shop and were amazed by the food. Delicious, great quality and inexpensive.

This is a carry-out with beautiful, wholesome-looking food. We had great butternut squash soup and the best flat whites we've had since being in the UK.

Tiny little shop that yields some of the best food in chamonix. Recommended to me this place was the perfect lunch destination, the salads were really very good, but the noodles were brilliant! Just bring your own seat 😃

By far the best coffee in Chamonix and they even serve a Flat White! The staff are friendly and speak both French and English too. They make delicious curries, salads, sandwiches, soups and biscuits. The only downside is that they are a 'take away' place...More

What would we do without Papillon's healthy, tasty and fresh takeouts? Perfect for days when you've got down off the mountain late and can't be bothered to cook, or for providing homecooked style dinner for friends without actually cooking. I love the Thai green curry,...More

This is our go-to spot whenever we visit Chamonix. We grabbed dinner from this little take-away spot every second night, because, let's face it, after a day skiing or snow-boarding, the last thing you want to do is to cook or head out to a...More

Papillon is now closed at this address. Tripadvisor won't remove our listing for reasons they prefer to keep to themselves. Perhaps they too hope we'll re-open?! Anyway, a big thankyou to all of our lovely customers! We've started a new speciality coffee roastery in Chamonix called Cafes Moody - we'll be selling our freshly roasted beans, brewed coffee drinks and accessories at the Chamonix market on Saturdays - hope to see you all there soon!
