The Cottage Café really is in a cottage - in the middle of Geneva, within metres of the lake. We ate outside on a warm, sunny autumn day. Hard to beat for its lovely setting amidst trees, by a fountain and with a view of the Jet d'eau (and an over-the-top Victorian memorial). The food was excellent. The goat cheese... More

We have eaten there for lunches and dinners since 2012. We will continue to go back to eat their great pastas and salads. Sit back, relax and enjoy watching the world go by. A perfect place to fuel up before twowheeltours heads off on the Haute Route Alps and Dolomites.

this breakfast was exactly what we needed: fresh juice, delicious caffeine-filled coffee, unusual (but wonderful) infusion tea, muesli with fresh fruit, toasted spelt bread topped with butter and fresh berry jams. It couldn't have tasted better. Was a little too chilly to sit outside, but we will next time. And, at $20/person, the price was reasonable by Geneva standards.

We bump into this cafe when we walk back to hotel. Many people when we arrive at 7pm so if you would like to try it, try to reserve in advance, We ordered 3 dishes only as it is the first day we arrive Swiss after a long journey. We are still adjusting from time zone difference, Sweet potato pie,... More

The Cottage is in a lovely little park with a view of the monument and lake. A nice looking oasis with outdoor searing under the trees. It is a good location. We just stopped by for coffees and juice in the afternoon. The coffee had that bitter taste you get when the coffee machine hasn't been flushed out and cleaned... More

I found this on Trip Advisor and thought I would give it ago with some friends. I wasn't disappointed. Wonderful food greatly presented, good service and outdoor dining on nice sunny days. I will defiantly be visiting again when I'm back.

You are right in the center of Geneva and yet once in Cottage cafe you feel far away from it all! This is a very charming place to have drinks. Service is a bit rude sometimes but the quality of the food and venue make it really worth it. Prices are good.

Lovely garden, perfect location, DELICIOUS food, great service..and a creative menu full of vegeterian options, too. I moved to Geneva two months ago and have eaten at Cottage cafe' 5x already. Wonderful experience every time. Leave room for dessert: the Tarte Tatin with homemade caramel ice cream is a masterpiece. Informal place. For a meal in good company

I love to go to this restaurant: it's in the center of the city (near the lake), but in a quiet and green area (the parc of Monument Brunschwig). It's decorated like an old chalet, with old books, mismatched furniture, fresh herbs in coloured vases... you feel instantly at home. Food is very good, fresh, creative, well dressed and nicely...
