Chocolaterie ARN, Geneva

Chocolaterie ARN, Geneva

Family-run for three generations, this Geneva confectionery has been around since the 1950s, having one of the most popular terraces on Place du Bourg-de-Four, a lure for true chocoholics. Renowned for its excellent homemade chocolates, including hot chocolate, Chocolaterie ARN offers a huge variety of this snack.

All their products are homemade. Notably, they sell pralines with drawings of views of Geneva, or Geneva pavers (understandably for those who have to give tourist gifts or wish to bite into the Reformers Wall). Either on their terrace or inside the tea room you can enjoy delicious truffles, chocolates, pastries and caramels over a cup of tea or coffee. Otherwise, you may go for one of their many ice cream cups.

The service is friendly and quick, given that they have to run between the tables in the tea room and those on the terrace. Open on Sundays, this small address makes a good stop for a snack after visiting an exhibition at Maison Tavel or elsewhere.
