Lunch is a trickier meal to find good veggie options for as you’ll often find yourself miles away from the town centres and only near more traditional restaurants. However, if you know where to head you won't be stuck with a plate of chips as your only option. If you find yourself in Avoriaz as the midday hunger strikes then Changabang is a good, easy, fast food place to head to. There are several options on the menu for vegetarians including a great guacamole wrap, curly fries and nachos. It’s a busy, no frills venue but perfect if you’re looking for something cheap and always cheerful.
The Cookie Cafe at the top of the Mossettes chairlift is also an easy veggie friendly spot to make a beeline for. There isn’t loads on the menu but it’s easy to get a decent mozzarella wrap or a tasty salad. For the record, the hot chocolate up there is also pretty good and the views are to die for. Talking of restaurants with a view, the Pointe de Nyon at the Nyon bowl is also a good place to head for veggies and meat eaters alike. There isn’t masses to choose from as a vegetarian but the salads that are on offer are extra special. You’ll also be treated to panoramic views of Morzine and Avoriaz. The terrace is perfect for a vin chaud on slow ski afternoons and on sunny days.
If you do manage to find yourself in the centre of Morzine for lunchtime then do give the menu at the Aubergade Hotel a try. Although they do serve a traditional Plat du Jour, usually consisting of meat and vegetables, they also have an eclectic, modern menu that caters really well for vegetarians. There are superfood salad bowls on offer, falafel, tasty starters including mozzarella sticks and garlic mushrooms and some sharing platters, especially for the herbivores! It’s also a great place to head if you have children with you and the weather's nice. There’s a great area for sledging out the back so you can enjoy your lunch whilst the children play.
New to the table is the fantastic Wild Beets cafe in Les Gets. This lovely little cafe at the bottom of the chavannes home run is the perfect stop off if you’re a veggie. However, meat eaters are also welcome. The menu is full of delicious wraps, soups, cakes and salads and caters for lots of different dietary needs. The vegetarian options are full of pulses and nuts to ensure you’re getting your protein fix as well as a tasty meal.
