VIVEL Patisserie: “Nice place to stop for tea or coffee”

It can be a little chilly (and wet) in Geneva in November, so when we were looking for a place to warm up, we found this charming Salon de Thé in the old town center. So many different flavours of tea that I couldn’t choose, so I ended up with the Chocola Chaud Maison Rohr, with wipped cream, of course. The hot chocolate was excellent, as was my apple cake. Although I was a little bit jealous of the chocolate cake my boyfriend chose.

Service was very friendly. The interior of Vivel Patisserie was bright and inviting and our drinks and food were beautifully presented. Would love to come back when the weather is better to sit outsite on the little terras.

Tea lovers, don’t miss out on this one!

La buvette des Bains des Paquis: “Good place for a quick lunch”

Having lunch outdoor in November is quite exceptionally, autumn is not wat it used to be, but you don’t hear me complaining. La Buvette du Bain de Paquis is a lovely place to have a quick basic lunch sitting outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Concept is self service, but you are served very quick and the food is decent. the Plat du Jour was nice enough. Location is key though, with a gorgeous view on Geneva Lake. They don’t accept credit cards, but you can pay with euros.
