We ate twice during the week and enjoyed both meals. The restaurant is at the finish to the Lauberhorn downhill course. The experience was helped by sitting outside in blazing sunshine in t-shirts even though it was mid February. Service was friendly and quick bringing extra bread and drinks quickly when we needed it. The food is traditional mountain food... More

We have a chalet in Wengen and have enjoyed Mary's Cafe over many years. However until last Saturday we had elected not to give them our custom - probably for the last 4 years - following a very unfortunate episode where, as part of a large group, our pre-ordered quails (Sunday speciality) were given to other guests and we were...

Unless you hit a day with a daily special you crave (e.g. Quail on Sunday's), or want cheese in some way shape or form you might find the choice very limited. Our table of six had green salad to start - very disappointing for 9CHF each (living in CH we know what we should expect). 2 x Macaroni (was good),... More

Thank you for your kind report. The saussage is specially made for you and is not cooked at all, but just warmed up for a few minutes, so ti cannot be overcooked at all, sorry. As for the soup, I made a few days ago already a point to the cook. Sorry for the inconvenience, but also on your day,... More

Small intimate cafe/restaurant just outside Wengen. Excellent food and quick friendly service. Wool rugs available for the cold days outside, otherwise great outdoor terrace for coffee or meals.

Excellent staff, service and food, with outdoor area next to the Lauberhorn mens downhill finish point, so ideal for skiers. We found it pricey but considering the location it was great for hot chocolate and soup.

Sitting cosily under the Lauberhorn run, Mary's is next to the piste or you can take a 15-20 minute walk out of Wengen through beautiful countryside. We only visited for hot chocolate this time (which I recommend), but next visit it will be on my lunch list. Lovely interior, pleasant and friendly staff, a real fire and sheepskin rugs on... More

My wife and I stopped on the 30th January 2017 for hot chocolate. The waiter was polite we ordered hot chocolate. When the hot chocolate was delivered it was only luke warm. I found it to be overpriced for 2 hot chocolates it was 15 swiss francs.

This place is apparently for skiers only. We were in Wengen in July and were looking forward to having brunch/coffee after a hike especially as it was signposted throughout the trail. There was no notice or opening/closing times mentioned, the chairs were upturned and no one came despite knocking. Overall, very disappointed!

Unfortunately is, that during summer Seasons, the customers rarely pass by the Café Marys. So that since a few years, we have decided to close it for the Season, as it is difficult, to run the business with reduced staff, in order to be able to pay the bills, and find out, that on two or three occasions, the customers...
