    Excellent Pour over filter brew. Maybe one of the only spots in Geneva, great staff and relaxing outdoor seating.

    Nice capuccino, but the chai latte was served cold. When the place gets crowded, the wi-fi stops working.

    Nice vibe, good coffee and nice service. Price-per size for tea: ridiculous concept & hugely overpriced

    Solid coffee and yuppy clientele (no hipsters in sight). Place seems to have an identity crisis between being a serious coffee place and a study spot. I used it for the later, although wifi was slow.

    Exactly the kind of coffee I was looking for, and boy have I looked. Better than 90% of the coffee shops in Geneve. Although it's crowded, it's not so load. True specialty coffee

    Third wave coffee? Check. Hipster baristas who might care about what they're doing? Check. Long lines? Check. High prices, even for Geneva.

    Great coffee, huge variety, staff who are passionate about coffee & take their time to share. The only two downfalls are: it's too successful so always slammed & quality can vary depending on barista

    Their other place (near the train station) does truly excellent coffee but this place is no slouch either —no filters though— and is big enough to hang out or get a bit of work done.

    Contrary to what the authorities say, there are few hipsters or bobos to be seen. They are sometimes heard via the sound system. Most regulars are yuppies.
