Great escape from the drizzly afternoon. Inviting atmosphere, rich coffee, scrumptious desserts, and wonderful service. Thank you!

This little cottage is located just by Lake Geneva, it offers a very cozy atmosphere, outdoor seating and nice coffee and tea. If you are looking to relax for a little bit, this is a great place to do it at.
