Went for lunch with colleagues. Very friendly and quick service. All three choices - salad, lasagne and the fish were quite large portions. Very healthy - lots of salads and vegetables. Very reasonable pricetag. Beautiful location with a view to the fountain and river.

We went to the Cottage Cafe 3 times during our short visit to Geneva. Sit outside, sip a cappuccino, take in the late view and the fountain and don't miss the Bircher muesli for breakfast. At 8 fr, it's a memorable meal.

Nice cafe, friendly staff, good tartines with homage jams, try the speculous tartine. Good coffee too. Good value for money in Geneva. Fresh fruit juices were excellent too. Seems to get busy in summer, booking may be essential for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is served...More
