I visited the Mont Blanc location and had a fantastic, and surprising, colombian natural on aeropress. None of the dirty, earthy flavors usually associated with a nat, it was more like a semi washed with a beautiful big body. The prices are kind of expensive...More

I've been to Boreal multiple times now and I'm generally satisfied with the coffee and food on offer. I'd even go as far as ranking it in the top 10 places to have a coffee a little thing to eat in the center but I...More

Love this 'little' coffee shop. The baristas are friendly and warm and creative. They deliver to an excellent standard. Very satisfying! Simply sit and people watch.

Given that the coffee here is almost at the same price as McDonald's coffee, this is a pretty good joint for your afternoon coffee. Comfy and relaxed atmosphere. Best enjoyed with your favourite book.

The shop which was very Artistic and simple in nature will attract any one who loves having coffee in a city like Geneva. It was a great taste and the brewing gets your attention. The shop also sells coffee powder and makers.

Hipster-ish third wave coffee shop with high prices even for Geneva. I'm sure that the baristas and owners care deeply about the coffee, selecting and roasting each bean individually with love and care, serving only those that contain exactly the right amount of irony... It...More

This is a nice and cosy coffee shop. It has really good coffee, a few Starbucks-ish drink that are very good too, and some tasty lunch options (their chicken avocado wrap is delicious !). It is a little expensive but so is everything in Geneva....More
