This is a fantastic, charming little creperie directly beside the cathedral in the Old Town. The crepes are delicious (and big!). It is good value. I've taken many friends here, always go back. Good service, small space but never had trouble getting table even though it's always busy. Great outdoor seating in summer (but watch your purse, you're in the Old Town/tourist area).

It would be hard to bungle the success of a restaurant at one of the best tourist spots in Geneva, right next to St Pierre Cathedral. Those running this establishment are however doing there utmost to do so. The food is reasonable, not exactly authentic Breton buckwheat crepes but not at all bad. What is however off putting is the frenetic disorganised fashion in which the place is run. The super tanned waiter appeared to have no memory of which table ordered what and was regularly disappearing into a nearby cellar to retrieve ingredients. There seemed to be some semblance of order with the arrival of a young bearded waiter, but the constant and audible exchanges of instructions between he and super tan did not help. The placement of an un-lidded slops bucket/ garbage bin immediately behind tables and in full view of patrons removed the very remote chance that the experience may have received a minimal pass mark. It did not. There are a number of places close by which while lacking the view of the Cathedral also lack the dismal excuse for service proffered by this establishment.

Snug little place right next to the cathedral. great place to get cozy with friends over some good food. try the spinach, tomato and chicken crepe. the chef recommended a sweet crepe that had vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, icing sugar and a dash of whiskey.....try it.

If you're in the Old Town of Geneva, looking at old buildings, statues and monuments, you will sooner or later need some sustenance. "Why not pop by a small café?" you think to yourselves and stumble across this "creperie", which basically means that it's a pancake place. The pancakes are typically French, which means that they are thin and not the thick American variant. You can have them with all sorts of things on; maple syrup, chocolate, ham and cheese, vegetables, eggs ... There are two types of pancakes: sugar and buckwheat (the latter being a bit more healthy). We had some tea and coffee after our meal, as well as some ice cream. It was all yummy.

The café itself is quite small, so it fills up quickly during lunch time - if you're here outside of the summer, pop by before or after lunch. In the summer, outdoor seating is possible. As we were the first to arrive, we beat the rush and the place filled up after we had been seated. Despite being full, there was not too much noise and the service fairly quick. I suspect that the staff may be busier in the summer months.

As for pricing, the people who say this is too expensive cannot possibly have been in Geneva very long. Relative to the general Swiss price level, this place is quite reasonable. If you have a very small budget to travel on I have only this to say: stay away from Geneva altogether.

Nice location next to St Peters Cathedral (definitely worth a vist by the way) with outdoor seating if the weather is suitable. Service was reasonably efficient but the food was only average. I had the crepe Ardeche and felt it was OK but that's all . At 17 Swiss francs it would be overpriced anywhere else but Geneva where it falls in line with everything else. The general atmosphere was nice as building has been on the site for many centuries.
