Wanted a quick bite for breakfast so I came here. This tiny spot on the corner doesn't seem like for tourists. The lady behind the register doesn't speak English and didn't seem very happy I wasn't quick ok deciding what to do. Most people who...More

The place is very popular, specially between the senior citizens that live in Champel. However, everything is average, from food to service. I was there this morning with some friends and the waitress rushed us to pay the bill as it was her break time...More

The ONLY reason this place is busy is because the terrace gets the sun and the 70+ year old locals that frequent this place are creatures of habit. Do not be fooled by the crowds, it's one of the worst places in Florissant/Champel. The bread...More

Slow service, super slow! Not very friendly Dirty bathroom Food is ok, sandwiches are ridiculous (expansive and nothing on there)!

I have always enjoyed the superb cakes and coffee; there is a lunch menu which I have not tried. On the left bank of Geneva, the most cosmopolitan place to meet your friends.

Nice outdoor terrace, nice cakes and pastries. Service is very uneven and slow. If you have lots of time you may enjoy it.

A haven for people looking for a bustling place on a Sunday afternoon in Geneva. At 5.30pm it was almost completely full. Patisseries are delicious and you get great polite and fast service with a smile. Prices are reasonable given the location and quality. A...More
