Enjoy a coffee or drink at this nice place embedded into the old town centre of Geneva. Fountain is not missing and a place to find some rest and inspiration.

This place is filled with restaurants, shopping outlets, and antiquity shops. I just love coming here often and walk around the old city browsing the shops and enjoying a morning coffee or lunch at any restaurant in this area.
