Late breakfast dating at Birdie

Find a snack at this charming Geneva-loved minimalist cafe as part of your Geneva culinary tour.  At Birdie, coffee comes with the great courtesy of a Florence barista, who takes the beans roasted using Fairtrade technology, then serves the coffee in your own style (from cortado to iced latte). Meanwhile, the cafe's chefs will make one of the best lunches in Geneva - anything from granola with apples to avocado toast with smoked salmon, hard-boiled eggs, and sandwiches.

Toast with handmade beers at Au Coin Mousse

For a cool craft beer, Au Coin Mousse is the best place to go. Near the Cornavin station, this gallery-style bar has a vibrant crowd and an ever-changing menu of craft beers is on display. Many of the 21 taps are available in one small glass, perfect for an impromptu tasting. Notably is Bière de Miel of Belgium, an organic honey-infused amber beer; and Swiss stout L'Amer Noirte, made with flavors of mocha, cocoa and licorice. These pair great with homemade burgers (try the ones topped with raclette cheese), bagels or toast.

Go for a walk at the farmers market

The next  destination in the Geneva culinary tour is the farmers market. When the sun is out of the sun, there's nothing more exciting than walking around a farmer's market. Food market in Plainpalais (open 9am to 2pm Tuesday and Thursday, and from 9am to 5pm on Sunday) are vendors selling fresh produce, cheese, saucisson, taste, honey and the like, as well as crêpes, falafel and porchetta tac (roast pork). Other great food markets include Marché du Boulevard Helvétique (open from 6:30 am to 2:15 pm Wednesday and Saturday), where families sell seasonal produce, mostly organic produce grown on Their rich ranch, as well as processed charcuterie meat, cheese, flowers, preservatives, local wine and roast chicken.

Try a meal at Intensus

If you love surprises, put yourself on the waiting list of the Intensus restaurant - the most famous culinary experience in Geneva . This is no ordinary restaurant: the chef and the location are only revealed 24 hours in advance. And upon arrival, you will find a beautifully furnished table for only 12 guests. The chef is present to serve you the champagne and personally explains about the finely composed 10-course menu of seasonal dishes. It's expensive (390 Swiss francs all with the right wines), but many say it goes way beyond any Michelin-starred meal they've ever eaten.
