At the midway point between Leysin and Berneuse the Temeley Café is also an authentic artisanal cheesemaking farm. Only accessible on foot in the summer, its location protects and enhances the very nature of its surroundings, lulled by the gentle sound of alpine cowbells.
Temeley is more than just a café. Primarily it’s an alpine cheese dairy which is in full operation throughout the summer season. Every morning Alain Cornamusaz uses the fresh milk from his cows to make Temeley cheese. Following time-honoured traditions he heats the milk in a huge cauldron over a wood fire.
For passing visitors, the Cornamusaz family offers a hearty mountain breakfast and at lunchtime, a « Cowboy’s Platter ». For picnics, you can also fill up your backpack with local produce from the farm.
