Chilling Out in Carouge

April 10, 2014 / by / 0 Comment

I don’t know about you, but I always forget about Carouge – despite the fact that it is one of the nicest areas to wander around, especially on a Sunday! Cozy cafés, concerts, art, movies and even a bit of shopping are on the to-do-list.

Breakfast… in bed?

February 10, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

How about being really lazy for once? After all since I started writing this section I’ve taken you out a lot… even for walks and all… I guess I am more of an active person… But sometimes it feels so good to simply do… nothing! So how about spending the day in bed? Watch some DVDs? Read a book? How many times have you dreamt of having breakfast served in bed? And how many times did it actually happen? The company Ptit Dej O Lit might well have the solution. Whatever you fancy, it’s most likely that they have it. They even have gluten free products for those of you who are intolerant to it. I’m hungry just scrolling down the list of pastries… And this way you don’t have to fight with your partner over who is going to prepare breakfast. You still have to open the door though! Biskotti hasn’t tried their service yet so please let us know what you think! They work with local people to get fresh products so that’s already a plus! They deliver everyday, even on Sundays and Bank holidays, another good point for them! Just go online, and order everything you want the day […]

Real Brunch

January 27, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

When I tell you that some of the best things in Geneva are hidden… Here is a typical example; Do you know Le Brunch Club ? If you are desperate for a real brunch, or even better a real English breakfast, you should definitely check it out. Every Sunday, Juliette and her team put together traditional Sunday brunch dishes at the cosy Café du Clos. Like me – and you probably – after living abroad, Juliette had been trying all kind of Sunday brunch places in Geneva for a while when she realized even though some places are pretty good, there was always something missing. It was not exactly like in London or in the US and I’m sure you’ll agree to that. Or it’s utterly expensive. So because if you want something done, sometimes it’s better to do it yourself, Juliette came up with this great concept. The idea is to make brunch in different places that are usually not open on Sundays and that people don’t necessarily know. She started in December last year and so far she has settled in Café du Clos. But who knows where she will take us next! In any case, Café du Clos […]

Breakfast in town and a stroll along the Arve…

November 25, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

How about going for a walk this week? Whether you want to stay in town or go in the country, Geneva offers a lot of options for short and easy walks. A really nice one is to go along the Arve River; It’s a good idea to take bus number 8 to Pont-Sierre to and begin from there to walk all the way back to Jonction. Or you go in the other direction and start from Jonction. Make sure you have good shoes, as it might get a bit muddy! You’ll be walking through forests and see great autumn-coloured trees; you will also go via Carouge. What I also find interesting is the colour of the water that keeps changing and all the birds you can observe if you are quiet enough. If you need a map you can find one here. The City of Geneva website has a list of 10 walks that are all quite fun to do, especially to discover or re-discover parks, museums and places you probably haven’t even noticed. I would start the day with breakfast before the walk but feel free to have brunch after your exercise! A good place is Chez Quartier, on rue […]

Ice-Skating and Brunch in Parc des Bastions

November 12, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Personally, November is definitely not my favorite time of the year as the days are becoming colder. However, there are still some outdoor activities you can do in town, like going for a long walk or putting your ice-skates on. The open-air ice-rink in Parc des Bastions is opening on Saturday! It’s quite a small one so it’s good for beginners or ideal if you have kids; it’s definitely a nice setting. Whether you wish to ice-skate or play hockey, Geneva offers several locations; Here is a list of places open on Sundays. (For the full week schedule please check the city of Geneva website) Patinoire de l’Europe: behind the commercial centre Planete Charmille – av de l’Europe 11  (small outdoor one) Open from 11am to 6pm. Parc des Bastions: inside the park just next to the chess games (small outdoor one). Open from 11am to 6pm. Patinoire de Carouge: Place de Sardaigne.

Yummy Bagel Brunch!

October 15, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Unfortunately Cafe de la Paix has just closed! Watch this space if they re-open and check out our restaurant section for other ideas… Café de la Paix is one of these places you find by chance, and that you immediately fall in love with! It’s a great and affordable restaurant in Plainpalais, and they make tasty dishes and always have a vegetarian option. You always feel welcome there. Every Tuesday, they host the Lindy Hop Party at 8:30 pm, and it’s a good way to have fun in the middle of the week, while also being a nice alternative to salsa dancing. Café de la Paix also has live music on Fridays, with bands of all kinds. Follow them on Facebook to get their updates. They also have an exhibition of paintings on the wall, so be sure to take a look! After all, their motto is Arts & Bagels! And yes…in case you’re skeptical…the bagels are delicious! They have them everyday, of course, but my recommendation is to go there for Sunday brunch. Scrambled eggs, salads, and bircher muesli are also on the menu. It’s one of the best deals in town (Small brunch for 15 CHF and big […]

Sunday Brunch, Out of Town, With a Side of Music

July 10, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

How about going somewhere a bit different for a brunch this weekend? If you feel like getting out of Geneva without going too far, then you should check out this restaurant: Cuvaloup de Crans, in La Cure. They have a brunch menu for CHF 26, drinks included. They will also have live Cuban music this Sunday! It will all take place outside on the terrace if the weather is nice, or inside if we are unlucky.  Brunch is on from 10am to 2pm. Address: Route de Cuvaloup – 1265 La Cure. It’s about 45Ks from Geneva, but it’s easy to get  there by car and also by getting a train to Nyon and then a bus: www.cff.ch. Yes, trains and postal buses really do go everywhere in Switzerland! On your way back, if it’s sunny, stop by the swimming pool of Nyon – the best swimming pool in the region. It’s right on the lake, so you can choose whether you want to swim in the pool or in the lake. They have a huge grass area, too, so it’s simply the best way to relax on a Sunday afternoon. And who knows, you might even get a suntan!
