English tea and scones in charming surroundings in Geneva's Old Town.
Tucked up a cobbled street in the Old Town, this charming ‘laughing teapot’ tearoom is ideal for those looking for an English-style high tea on a rainy afternoon. As you’d hope, there’s a vast array of loose-leaf teas on offer, along with some properly decadent cakes and homemade scones, which come warm with jam and cream (not clotted, but you can’t have everything). The decor is cosy and quaint, and there are usually newspapers and magazines to read. It’s not always service with a smile (let alone a laugh), but it’s a relaxing place to be nonetheless.
