Chalet 4810 pépites et gourmandises in Chamonix is an absolutely lovely and welcoming tea room opened since 1909 ( in fact among the best confectioners in Chamonix), now completely renovated, housed in a beautiful traditional wooden chalet where you will wrap your senses in so many flavors, starting with the famous macarons in different colors and assortments, croissants and other bakery products, to the variety of cakes and tarts with chocolate, fruits, all kinds of creams and fillings, arranged so elegant and inviting in large showcases.
Chalet 4810 pépites et gourmandises ( 4810 comes from the Mont Blanc's elevation), is that kind of place from which you do not want to leave so soon. You will find it hard to choose something and when you finally decided, you just don't want to leave behind that beautiful and cozy place loaded with super sweet goodies designed to increase your glycemic index.
The staff is friendly, extremely pleasant and eager to advise you, however, without strangling with questions of all sorts. I found Chalet 4810 as a sweet little corner of paradise where you can enjoy the diversity and quality, as well as a warm ambiance.
You can choose to serve the goodies found in this chalet, upstairs where you're welcomed in a room with beautiful tables arranged with flowers and in the middle of the room there are some showcases full of fascinating crystals (other emblem of Chamonix) and some fancy teapots are hung on the walls. Complimentary, you receive a generous carafe of water to quench your thirst after an éclair or a gelée de framboises et bavaroise à la vanille. Also upstairs is a small balcony where you can dine outdoors and admire the view from above: people strolling around and the mountain ... the blessed mountain with its snow-white peaks all season. Divine.
