The buffet was spread out and with an extensive selection of both cold and hot breakfast items. There was a large table of breakfast breads – croissants, pains au chocolat, brioches with artisanal jams and marmalades. Towards one side was a large marble open-shelved fridge with cold items – smoked salmon, hams, cheeses, yoghurts, Bircher muesli, fruit and fresh juices. Finally, in the middle was a large granite-topped counter with stoves built-in to keep the food hot and casseroles were filled with scrambled eggs, sausages, crispy bacon, fried mushrooms and sauteed cherry tomatoes. The juices were served in individual mini-carafes, the yoghurt with raspberry puree was home-made, the Bircher muesli delicious, the bread selection extensive and the espressos short. It was without a doubt, the best breakfast we both had this year. Tabletops were modern and service was efficient and courteous. Other tables were filled with international businessmen having breakfast meetings and delegates from the nearby United Nations. We had a long leisurely breakfast, packed our bags then checked out and moved to the Hotel du Rhone which is closer to the old town for our last two nights in Geneva.
