After hiking down the trail, and coming out of the cave , there in front of you , is this little hotel/restaurant, built into the mountain. You can have a light meal or beer and continue on your downward trek.

We took the cable car up and hiked to the Berggasthaus Aescher for lunch. Beautiful views along the way with little places to stop along the way. Most of the placards describing the site were only in German. The day we ate at Berggasthaus Aescher...More

Hiked to Epenalp and found this gem near the top. Great views accessed by a gondola. Have a beer and/or light lunch on the mountain side. Not for folks with disabilities.

The Ebenalp cable car runs all year round I think as it is a ski location. The Restaurant however is only open from May to November. Hope this helps :)
