This small and cosy café is situated in the beautiful old town of Geneva. Just have a drink and watch life go by. They serve some sandwiches but the disinterested staff is not really paying attention so we left after one drink.

Set in the main tourist trap yet authentic Geneva old town experience. A pleasant place to stop for a morning coffee or an after drink. Great for people watching and topping up sun tan.

One of a selection of cafes and restaurants within the 'old-town' of Geneva by the Cathederal area. A pleasant place to sit, relax and enjoy life simply passing by. This bar was friendly and not too expensive compared to some other bars/resaurant/cafes in this area....More
