Great tea & scones place with an incredible view. With your round trip ticket for the main Gondola “Noah”, you can take second smaller chairlift that will take you down in a more quiet spot. Here you will find Chavaty Tea & Latte. The shop is in a modern wood structure and offers a stunning view of the valley underneath and the mountains. In proximity to the shop they have positioned a number of tables and chairs for visitors and a variety of toys for kids. The sun can be brutal here so be ready to hide in the tents available for protection. The shop is small and be ready to queue for a long time to order and pick up. The cafe has a very limited menu but quite tasty. Menu is pretty much 2 types of scones, 2 types of soft ice cream and a variety of teas hot or cold (matcha, chai, UVA and Hojicha). The Tea set offers 2 scones and a tea + spreads for ¥1298 (you can add ¥150 extra for the large take away ice tea bottle). We preferred to normal scone to the special Chavaty Chromos scone (made with Hakuba Limited Kuro-moji apparently something from a local tree). If you come early enough in the day you might be able to secure a mini picnic set (that is the tea set + a small salad). Negative sides of the place:
- very limited menu
- no vending machines so no water
- if you don’t like tea you cannot find anything to drink (no coffee or soft drinks).
- No baby changing facilities in the public toilets in the area so be aware if visiting with infants.
- Very long waiting time for a product that is pretty much pre-made.
Plus sides:
- stunning view
- nice architecture
- good food


Cute little cafe for a quick tea break, love the nutty honey with ricotta cheese for the scone. Milk tea is a bit too sweet and light on overall taste tho


Won't post a bad review because that's not the point, just wanted to update that today (december 27th) the lift to Chavaty was closed and it wa super sad to not be able to go, hopefully they'll open the lift again soon!


Beautiful view, must try scone with ice-cream


Very nice tea drinks and the scones are delicious. I do subtract a star because there is no actual ceramic mugs, everything is paper and plastic cups.
