Delicious & friendly

Small organic shop and cafe which has a mezze plate for lunch. The plate was delicious, with plenty of different flavours and textures which all came together perfectly. Portion size was generous too. The person who served us was friendly and happy to translate for us the bits we weren't sure of. Two tram stops from the train station to reach.

Pros: Good location

Small place with few options

Even though I arrived about 20 minutes after opening, there were only a few pies available to choose from. The owner really needs to take customers seriously: we waited for almost 20 minutes at the counter while he was on the phone. Had I not been hungry enough I would have left.

The pies were tasty, though, but I had bigger expectations (was actually hoping to eat cake) and somewhat overpriced. The tables are not tables where one can sit and relax - it's more a place to be while one takes a bite.

Pros: What I ate was tasty. Close to the tram line.

Cons: Bad customer service.

Tiny, tiny little place; not much to offer

I was intrigued by the great reviews for this place, but was thoroughly disappointed. Firstly, there is no store at all even if it is listed as such. It is a tiny little restaurant with about 6 tables, and a food counter where are displayed mostly deserts and some prepared salads and savoury things. There are a handful of health-food store like things to buy, but it is not really even worth mentioning. Really, it's a place where people go for lunch. And the main course of the lunch was seitan with potatoes, accompanied by a few little salad or vegetables dishes. If you prefer raw, or if you don't eat gluten, or if you don't eat carbs, there's really nothing there for you. The owner is very proud of his little place, which seems to be popular among the late middle agers discovering vegetarian cooking. But, I would say if you're not in that category, don't bother going.

Pros: Cute place, cozy atmosphere

Cons: High carb, Mostly cooked, 90's style vegetarian

Great little shop--good food!

First of all, don't be fooled when you try to find this place and begin thinking to yourself, "This is a very odd place for a restaurant. It can't be here." It is there! (It is near the Ukrainian embassy.)

We ordered a large vegan, home-cooked platter for two of us for lunch--and it was enough. Very filling, very delicious. We also had a piece of cake and a tart for dessert and they were brilliant. I assume the produce is local as the food was very seasonal. My only negative comment would be that it was too salty.

I should also note that while all food that is home-made is vegan, not everything in the store is vegan--so beware! (It is all vegetarian, however.)

Great choice overall for veggies in Geneva!

Pros: Good food, Helpful staff, Healthy

Cons: Pricey--like everything in Geneva, Salty, Small
