This old-school café and ice cream parlour is a Geneva institution.
Created by an Italian family of ice-cream makers in 1921, Remor hasn’t changed much since then – at least in decor. But its charming pre-war feel is part of the reason why people flock here in droves – that and its prominent people-watching position in Plainpalais, its relaxed, artsy feel, its outdoor terrace and its free wi-fi. That’s before we even get to the food. As you’d expect, there’s a copious selection of homemade ice creams, sorbets and classic ice cream-based puds such as banana split which are satisfyingly large and rich. Desserts aside, Remor’s line-up of pizzas, cheese toasties, charcuterie and sandwiches is decent, if not spectacular. The café also hosts regular movie nights screening short films by local directors.
