Breakfast and brunch

In resort you'll find coffee and croissants if you like an early start, or somewhere to simply grab a coffee on the go. But if you're after a full English or a bacon sarnie, there's a spot for that too if you don't mind waiting until late morning for more of a brunch.

Cafes and bakeries

As in any French town you're never far from a bakery to pick up a fresh morning baguette. Tignes has a number of cafés and snack bars serving sandwiches and small bites, where you can grab something to go or have a coffee and catch up with friends.

Child friendly restaurants

Most, if not all of the restaurants in resort are child friendly, especially if you let them know in advance. Evening meals are normally served from 19:00, and the restaurants are quieter at this time than later on.

Choosing a restaurant in Tignes

French restaurants
