The Deck coffee shop team is proud and excited to announce that its dessert counter features the trendiest and most delicious dessert in town – frozen yogurt!
For non-aficionados, frozen yogurt, also known as “FroYo”, is a frozen dessert made by freezing dairy yogurt. It is similar to ice cream, although it has a lower fat content and a slight tartness of flavour that most ice creams do not have. Many youngsters, as well as adults, have already been convinced by its unique taste. But there is another reason for frozen yogurt’s success – its incredible variety of toppings.
Your kids will love the interactive experience at the counter where they can customise their yogurt and make their own unique creations from our delectable toppings, including healthy fresh fruits, crunchy cereals and an assortment of gummies and candies.
Enjoy a cup from our dessert buffet or take a pint to go!

As the cold winter is knocking at your door, it’s time to say “cheese” and join us at the Swiss Chalet for a memorable and unique evening.
We have decided to bring you the best from Switzerland right here at the Club and have recreated a cozy Swiss Chalet setting inside the Private Deck until December 31.
You will be able to enjoy some all-time Swiss favourites such as Raclette and Fondue.
The Fondue this year is the real “Moitie Moitie”, which is one of the most popular fondues in Switzerland. Moitie Moitie means half and half in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, because we use 50 percent Gruyere and 50 percent Vacherin Fribourgeois.
Fondue dates from the 11th century and is best enjoyed with a group of friends or family. We like to say that it brings joy and happiness – especially when you have a glass of Chasselas (Swiss white wine) to go with it! We have directly imported one of the best white wines from Switzerland, Aigle Les Murailles (Aigle is the city and Les Murailles means The Fortifications).
English-speaking residents of Switzerland like to call it The Lizard wine, because of the small reptile depicted on the label, and which can be found often on the walls of our castles during the hot summer days.
Another Swiss classic is the Raclette, which consists of melted cheese unique to the Valais region. This has its origins in mountaineer and farmer festivals, where locals enjoy this rustic and authentic dish with friends and with a glass of Fendant (another popular Swiss white wine).
There’s so much to say about Swiss specialities and I look forward to welcoming you at the Chalet to tell you more about it during the month of December.
