The baristas at Birdie in Geneva serve the best coffee in town – hands down. Opened by two friends with a big passion for coffee, it’s a cool neighborhood spot that ticks all the boxes, close to lots of galleries and museums. They work with beans from different roasters like The Barn in Berlin or Copenhagen’s Coffee Collective and also prepare some amazing small dishes (one of the founders here used to work for Alain Ducasse). Expect homemade sandwiches, soups and salads, as well as cakes and other sweet treats.
