Shaded terrace to enjoy the nice weather.

Rue de Bandol 1. You can book a table here.
With no less than five bakeries-pastry shops-confectionery-tea rooms spread around Geneva, this family business founded in 1951 is well known in the region. Representing the 4th generation of bakers, Stéphane Oberson was awarded “Pain d’Or” in 2018. This distinction rewards the best artisan baker in the canton. To taste if you haven’t already done so? The morning croissant to crunch on the spot with a coffee and the press, a sandwich with “Rolinette” bread for lunch, a famous fruit bread for a snack and a Criobello (chocolate mousse, creamy vanilla, almond dacquoise…) at tea time.
