Carouge Tips (5)

Go straight to Carouge...


A charming village in the city...

Relax by strolling through this nice little city and animated streets with plenty of good addresses to eat, to drink and to dance.

Some of my favourite addresses in Carouge:
- Restaurant au Vieux Carouge (27 rue Jacques-Dalphin) for their famous and delicious Swiss Cheese Fondue specialties in a very popular and friendly athmosphere.
- Café du Marché (Place du Marché) a wide wine selection carte to combine with some creative and original dishes. A pleasant athmosphere and service.
- Au Chat Noir: nice place for a beer, for a chat;-) or live concert...

Not so CALM after all...

I went to CALM in Carouge to try the recommended brunch by one of your tippers. However, what I thought as a useful tip turned out as a disaster. I was so excited when I saw the restaurant -- sumptuous-looking food, nice interiors and an amazing terrace. But these elements do not make a restaurant. What makes dining a pleasant experience is service. We waited 40 minutes to be seated, 40 minutes for the menu, 20 minutes for drinks. At that moment, we gave up. The waiters just did not care. If you want a pleasant Geneva experience, I honestly and sincerely recommend, do not go to CALM.

Weekend homey brunches

C.A.L.M. Comme à la maison ('Calm, like home') is a wonderful little off the beaten path cafe in Carouge that serves delicious brunches during the weekend. It opened not long ago when two female bankers in their thirties decided that they had had enough of that world and started their dream.... Hmmm, inspiring!

When you first enter, it looks like a tinny kitchen, but as you venture to the back you will first find a living room with cozy couches and tables and then a charming little terrace in the patio for the warm months.

What to order: the homemade bread (called tresse) that you can eat with the marmelades and Nutella located at the buffet, the sesame chicken salad, and the homemade quiches... as for sweets, all their pies and cakes and fresh made that same morning, but I would recommend the chocolate pie and the tarte tatin (reversed apple pie.)

Carouge, once a seperate city...

Carouge, once a seperate city is now a part of Geneva's urban area. Charming streets lined with three-story buildings house boutiques where one can find the latest in creative fashion, jewelery, furniture, and decorations. Zabo Chapeaux is a must for those searching for hats with imagination and quality. 31, rue St.-Joseph, Carouge tel:(022)301 7576

Don't miss Carouge, a...

Don't miss Carouge, a neighborhood that previously belonged to Sardinia. The architecture is very different, and it's a nice place to walk around if the weather is fine. At night, go to the Chat noir, a bar with live music located at rue Vautier 13.
