At the midway point between Leysin and Berneuse the Temeley Café is also, in the Summer, an authentic artisanal cheesemaking farm. Only accessible on foot, its location protects and enhances the very nature of its surroundings.
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. In winter, the refreshment bar, located along a snowshoe trail, offers a well-deserved break.
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.
