Whether you're skiing, boarding, snow-shoeing or dragging your kids up a hill on a toboggan, there's nothing like a day outside in the fresh mountain air to work up an appetite that would put a hungry hippo to shame.
Serving up world class pizza and pasta with a side of killer views, Aldo's is a gem tucked away in the snowy mountains. While the Perisher Ski Tube Terminal doesn't immediately scream 'ambience', head to the far corner and you'll find Aldo's Cafe, a haven amongst the mountain chaos.
There is a generous breakfast menu on offer until 10:30am with plenty of both sweet and savoury options to get your day off to a good start. When it comes to lunch, the food is classic Italian with pizza and pasta making up the majority of offerings but you can also find salads, burgers and desserts.
Mussels at Aldo's Cafe, Perisher Valley
The food at Aldo's is packed full of flavour and the portions are more than a match for the appetites of hungry snow-goers. There's also icy cold beer and a good selection of wines and spirits so you can kick back and enjoy the apres-ski with views across the front valley to keep you entertained while you eat.
Considering Aldo's is about to rack up 25 years serving pizza at Perisher, they're definitely doing something right to keep customers coming back year after year. Unlike a lot of tourist-town cafes, there is a real pride in the food and attention to providing diners with a great experience. A stop at Aldo's is a must-do if you're considering a visit to the NSW snowies - check out their full menu here to get some mouth-watering ideas about what to order. Eat up, drink up and happy skiing!
