I went here for brunch on Saturday and I really enjoyed the experience! The service is friendly, the ambience is very cute, the coffee is quite good and the food is excellent as well. I had the smoked salmon and cottage cheese tartine and my boyfriend had the ham and parmesan tartine; both were amazing! They also have some nice... More

I used to live next door, so was a regular for a couple of years.. Yesterday, on a Sunday night, we were desperately looking for a place to have a fondue.. Obviously, since café des avenues advertises so clearly the have an awesome fondue de chèvre (goat cheese) that's where we went! In addition to the menu you're handed to... More

I usually come here for Sunday brunch. The food is good, the place is authentic, cozy and really family-friendly - then probably not the best choice if you're trying to recover from an hangover!

Nice atmosphere but just had an awful swordfish dish - tasted like the offcuts that normally get thrown away - very fatty flavour and soft consistency - nothing like any swordfish ever tasted . Pity, otherwise nice place,maître d' thought it was fine when we questioned the quality - feel a bit ill now 😞

Was trying hard to find a non touristy breakfast place... And thanks to trip advisor, I found it. This place has a relaxing vibe and decor. Soft music playing in the background. Spacious. Friendly staff. Good selection for brunch. I got the eggs with tomatoes. Comes with a side salad. Tasty. Good cappuccino. Tea selection was weak. Prices very reasonable... More

We heard of their brunch menu from a web based review. We were 2, on arrival we were asked if we had booked a table. It was pretty full at 11:45am; the waitress, although we could imagine a pretty stressful shift for her, welcomed us with a few jokes and provided us a table. The menus are large for the... More

Nice place to go last minute. You won't be surprised or disappointed... Good atmosphere, decent food, not overpriced (is is in Switzerland!). The service is OK for a Swiss restaurant. Good value for your money.

I have been coming to this establishment for some months now, but for coffee and drinks. The staff is always courteous and 'friendly' compared to swiss romande standards. We ordered a the dry meat plate (a poor thing that looked sad and destitute of any kind of beauty and the marinated onions tasted like 1940's moth balls dipped in vinegar...).... More
