You know the skate shop Boomshakalaka and its big brother Cool Cats but have you been recently “relaxed” and had a coffee break in Chamonix under the blue awning avenue du Mont-Blanc? If not, before going there, I’ll set the scene. Discover here the news of Boomshakalaka, The place to be before and after skiing to settle down, exchange, equip yourself and bargain.
Coffee break, snack, lunch…
The pretty vaulted skate shop, akin to an Ali Baba’s cave, is now equipped with a coffee and takeaway area.
Go for Moody’s Chamonix-roasted coffee or the homemade hot chocolate with fleur de sel. Accompany your drink with a pastry from Maison Bourdillat and enjoy this moment in the heart of Chamonix.
Breads, sandwiches, granola…
The atmosphere is cool, you feel good and Boomshakalaka is rich of good products, home-made or organic.
Before going for a ride or to work (yes, we are not all so lucky), fill up with energy with a delicious breakfast on the spot and leave with a sandwich that will make you salivate all morning. (The bagels are to die for!) An organic drink and you are ready for the day.
Foodies will also love the homemade peanut butter and granola. In short, in addition to your lunch, you can also do small food shopping and even original shopping!
Second hand, creators and skaters’ paradise
As I said, Boomshakalaka is a small refuge where you can find all sorts of things. Eco-responsible objects or objects made by creators are in the spotlight. Jewelry, book and card on the language of colors, cushions, flower pots… and skateboards by tens!
You want to have the flow? Then dress up at Boomshakalaka. Carhartt pants, a Magenta sweater and a Chirve Prod board (made in Chamonix) will make you the perfect skateboarder. After, for the quality of your tricks, it’s up to you to do the job….
Caps, hats, gloves and all the accessories of the perfect skateboarder are available here (wheels, trucks, boards of course…) Find the great brands of ready-to-wear skateboarding (Pace, Antiz…), mainly in unisex.
You don’t practice skateboarding ? So what? Nothing prevents you from enjoying yourself in this skate café!
Don’t hesitate to have a look at the second hand shoes and racks, sometimes you can find treasures.
