It's overall a good cafe ~ friendly staff and lively ambience, but not very impressed by the quality of coffee.

I came here because I read that it was one of the only local coffee-shops in Geneva to carry soy-milk. As a vegan who is lactose intolerant, I often have trouble drinking coffee when traveling abroad, so I was quite excited to come here. They...More
