I came here for breakfast and although the menu is very limited, the Bircher Muesli is to die for! Honestly the best breakfast I have ever eaten. Cosy atmosphere, would say it’s more of a winter venue than a summer venue as it’s quite small...More

Cool & cozy little place in the little parc next to Lac Leman with the Brunswick Monument, between Hotel Ritz-Carton and Le Richemond. Light snack type foods with interesting combinations, good cocktails & wine offered in a casual & cozy atmosphere. Prices reasonable.

This was a great find while I was in Geneva. We were just walking around around the city center and was looking at the Monument to the Duke of Brunswick. The cafe is just behind it. Great outdoor sitting area with wonderful view of the...More

Admittedly, the waitress was a bit cross that we even wanted to eat there, the kitchen was closing at 2pm, but this was 1.40 - which seemed to be her main problem. Anyway we were "allowed" to stay and eat, on the condition we ordered...More
