The Corner

They say good things come in small packages, they say it’s the little things that one appreciates, but enough about the owner. The newest addition to Tignes’ eateries is small but perfectly formed and named, astonishingly enough, due to its location amongst the restaurants at the bottom of the Tufs chairlift over in Val Claret. This fresh new cafe is the venture of Lou, owner of Blue Note with her brother Matt for 13 years, and fiancé Ryan, a badass mountain man, who ran the Planks kitchen in Tignes last year and is now heading up the cooking department of The Corner.

It’s tough to embark on something new out here, especially when it comes to standing out from a crowded market of lunchtime eateries. But this powerhouse duo have managed it, and done it with flair. From the homely decor to the mouth watering meals, they have created somewhere perfect for a mid-ski stop off that is sure to be a hit with Val d’Iserians taking the trip to Tignes for the day.
