“A pleasant square”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

You will find yourself as on a small village place. Old buildings around, brasseries and cafes etc. And it's quiet, no cars. You can park at St Antoine next door and enjoy a well deserved refreshment.

“A charming ambiance”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is right in the old section of Geneva. It is worth strolling through this old part of town and then finally sit down on the square. This is an historic section of Geneva and is always alive with a younger crowd of people.

“The inn place in Geneva”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Have a coffee (or even a Greek frappé) at the Clémence watching the politicians and other Geneva socialites all around you.
Or a ice-cream "artisanal", or buy Caran d'Ache pencils, or even have a lunch at one of the sidewalk cafés.
This is Geneva
