Cottage Cafe

This cabin tucked in the trees near the Brunswick Monument is a home from home.

There’s something a bit fairytale about this place. Tucked on a grassy patch near the Brunswick monument on the right bank of Lake Geneva, it’s a cosy cabin designed as a home from home. Inside there are old wooden dressers containing books and magazines, paintings on the walls, mismatched lamps and trinkets. Outside, the leafy terrace looking onto the monument and the lake is a peaceful spot to sit and have a quiet breakfast or lunch – the large salads are particularly tasty. Or come after 6pm to take advantage of its menu of tapas – cheeses, dips, smoke fish, marinated vegetables – and local wines. And as befits a gingerbread house, the cakes and puddings are to die for.
