This beautiful square is the heart of the old town, lined with restaurants and cafés is the perfect spot to relax and have a coffe or dink outside. It's probably the busieste(in Geneva terms)square of the old town. From there you can walk arround the beautiful cobbled streets.

you want to have a drink on a terrasse, to take a break and to see how Geneva is "living", stay there and just have a look...

A beautiful place to walk around and see the buildings and sit for a coffee. There's a small free museum there as well that explains the history of Geneva.

I love to sit here in the winter, spring, summer or autumn. In the cooler weather they give you blankets to wrap around your legs, cute or what? Depending on the season and the the time of day, choosing which section to sit is key, I've sat in Clemance and been offered nothing more than coffee (which was lovely) then... More

We stopped for a latte and a Kronenbourg in the late afternoon, sitting out on under the umbrellas in the square. The carillon from the Cathdedrale, far above, was playing. What was wrong with this picture? Absolutely nothing.

We gravitated towards this Old Town gathering square. Very quaint streets leading up to the square now with many cafes and restaurants. We had lunch then dinner here on separate occasions. You can go very inexpensive or totally blow your meal budget in this area of town. Beautiful on a warm summer night in July. We enjoyed ourselves.

Sitting in the square outside the Tea Rooms, sipping tea with luscious pastry, people watching while the fashionably suited business men and women grabbed lunch at nearby tables... made life very liveable!

I thought this was going to be a bigger square than it is, but it is ok. There are a few bars and restaurants around. I read about Clemence bar but didn't think it was anything special! We stopped there for a couple of drinks. We were there last weekend, end of June, so maybe it gets more lively later... More

A great stop for a hearty brunch - the rostis are huge but slightly overpriced! If you are after a greasy hangover cure this is the place for you!
