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...

Just happened to stumble on this place while walking to the water. It was extremely crowded so we took that as a good sign and sat down to eat. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly. We decided on the quinoa salad and pesto pasta with a glass of wine each. The total bill came out to about 70... More

One of my favourite places for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Centrally located in a small park facing the lake and the Alps beyond, you'll never guess you're in middle of town. Quiet and peaceful, warm welcome and excellent food. Highly recommended.
