When the sun is shining it is always agreeable to enjoy eating alfresco style whilst escaping the buzz of city life in Geneva. Recently we did just that and accompanied friends for brunch at Au P’tit Bonheur.READ MORE
A friend invited us to Sunday brunch at Brasserie des Halles de l’ile and I groaned.
Sunday brunch has great potential here but never quite delivers. In the past, I have been annoyed by the disorganised service with tables left dirty and uncleared, the fact that there are often birds flying inside (never ideal when you are eating) and the bland food. The Brasserie des Halles is one of Geneva’s old Slaughterhouses – its a great designed modern space overlooking the river with tables inside and out.READ MORE
If you’re after an easy brunch this Sunday you can’t go far wrong with Le Pain Quotidien. This international chain of bakeries was founded in 1990 by Alain Coumont who, as a young chef, was dissatisfied with the quality of bread available in Brussels so decided to take charge and recreate the bread his grandmother used to bake when he was a small child.READ MORE

The brunch features fresh breads with cheese, fruit, a cold main course (salmon, chicken and salad were on offer when I visited). Included is a dessert and coffee for a reasonable 28 CHF.READ MORE
