The coffees, fresh croissants and amazing orange juice made our first morning in Geneva worthwhile. As we had just gotten off the plane from the states we needed a light start to the day. The service was friendly and we are refreshed.

This café, located on a large plaza behind the cathedral, is an institution in the old town. It has the feel of the old hideout where students, lawyers and politicians gather around a beer discussing at length about everything and nothing inside the narrow but warm bar or on the large terrace on sunny days. The food is limited to... More

One of a selection of cafes and restaurants within the 'old-town' of Geneva by the Cathederal area. A pleasant place to sit, relax and enjoy life simply passing by. This bar was friendly and not too expensive compared to some other bars/resaurant/cafes in this area. Served drinks quickly and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Can imagine that this...

I really like this place for its location, in the heart of the old town and especially in spring/summer time! Really nice for the chill after work.

A great little wine and drinks bar in the centre of the old town. The outside area was buzzing with young types, but I managed to blend in without being discovered! Good selection of drinks. Even though it was freezing outside, the blankets and good wine protected me from the weather. Service was outstanding, and even when I had to... More

This is a nice cafe in a lovely part of Geneva, with a really big and sunny outdoor space and loads of tables. The indoor space is more limited and can fit perhaps a dozen and a half if you really squeeze everyone. Beware, they take cash not cards.
