“Comme en Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

It's a really nice tea room in Rue des Paquis serving great croissants and pain au sucre. You can enjoy your food on a sofa or in an armchair surrounded by mirrors.

I walked back and did notice furniture and decorationdecoration was the same as 10 20 years back. Was really really happy .

“Perfect pastries in gilded surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

This inexpensive, quaint tea room on Rue des Pâquis is a locals favorite. Gilded mirrors, ornate wall coverings, mismatched chairs and an individual flair give the place a warm and interesting ambiance. The pain au chocolat is well-known across the city so expect them to be sold out - if so the lemon tarts are a highlight but the pastries selection is rich, varied and always fantastic. It's a beautiful place to enjoy a big cup of tea or coffee, watch the locals and take in all that is Geneva. A stone's throw from the Lake near Bain's de Pâquis it's worth hunting for.
