Want to get an authentic European dining/Brunch experience? Come to this place. Sit outside with many other people and have a great brunch. Excellent place to have food. Do try the Banana milk shake.. I loved it.

A great classic in Geneva, lively crowd - try the Calvinus beer in several different types. Nice almost any time of the year

Although this is my favourite place in Geneva to sit and have a drink or snack, there isn't much else I can say in it's favour. Everything in Geneva is so expensive, and the bars here are no exception.

This is definitely the place to be for the locals (on the terrace of la Clemence) in the old town of Geneva when the sun gets out just in front of the court.

This is a meeting point of many small streets in "Old Geneva". It has a number of cafes and restaurants and tables and chairs outside. It is the place the locals meet and a great place to sit and people watch! My wife and I visited here every day, usually for a drink after exploring the city. We also ate... More

Several choices on that square from a pub to a bakery with delicious pastries and good coffee. Good spot to observe the activity of genevans working in the area: that would be mainly state employees and court employees as on this square next to the police station you will notice the Courts of Justice building. All buildings in Geneva can... More
