  • 3 out of 5 stars
  • Restaurants
  • Burgers
  • Pâquis
  • price 1 of 4
Testament to its success is the fact that it actually started life as a roving food truck which still touts its burgers around town (locations change daily – see the website for details) before demand led to this permanent outlet which, pleasingly, has a satisfyingly-stocked bar.

American Dream Diner • Geneva
  • Restaurants
  • Burgers
  • Pâquis
“It’s greased lightning” in this all-American diner. Like a scene out of 1950s movie set, this tiny corner near the train station is a perfect cliché of milkshakes, hot dogs and of course, typical Yankee burgers. 
  • Shopping
  • Markets and fairs
  • Carouge
On Wednesdays and Saturdays Carouge gets a further boost with the arrival of the market on the lovely Place du Marché. Take a big bag and fill it with fruit and veg, cheese, honey, fresh bread, flowers, wine and locally made treats.
