The Tea is an address as only geneve knows how to propose them, a little jewel of the Chinese restoration that you will discover only by chance or hotly recommended by connoisseurs and / or fans (and they are many).  Nestled in the heart of the Quartier des Bains, this tiny Asian specialty restaurant offers genuine and delicious cuisine, featuring a myriad of Dim-Sum (steamed ravioli) to discover or rediscover. In addition to its culinary specialties for which the establishment is particularly recognized, the Tea, like its name suggests, proposes especially a very wide selection of Chinese teas with evocative and poetic names, whose aficionados of the kind can easily be relished. You will also discover many accessories for The Tea, including a multitude of teapots in fonts or sandstones all more cute ones than the others: quite charming.

Monday to Friday 5 am-7 pm Saturday and Sunday (and public holidays) 5.30 am 19.00 pm. Outside of these hours, the boulangerie Saint-Honoré welcomes you to the door all night to serve you. Chocolate bread crispy and fluffy to perfection, golden croissants cooked just right, the bread for its part is declined with originality and perfection: spelled, string, traditional baguette, bun with green or black olives, dates and seeds, nuts and grapes. To understand the know-how of this bakery, we must go back in time until 1986, when Mrs Panzano's baker, the baker, bought this shop in the Rue de Carouge. The name does not change for lack of means, but bread remains king. At the age of 18, Mrs. Panzano joined the family business and perpetuated a tradition that everyone can read on a sign at the entrance to the bakery: "The St Honoré produces in his bakehouse in the basement. At a time when everything is going too fast, we work in the respect of traditions with quality products. For the pleasure of your taste buds. " In the basement, in the bakehouse, Mr. Canovas rises at dawn every morning of the week and kneads the bread with patience and years of experience. When I ask for the secret of this extraordinary bread, I am told: "Flour, water and salt ... and lots of love." In practice, Ms Panzano explains to me the importance of flour supplied by one of the most important partners of Swiss artisan bakers: Mino-Farine, a brand of tradition and innovation. At the Saint-Honoré, you will meet neighbors, bankers, students, greedy people in a friendly atmosphere, sunny on the terrace on summer days. They come for bread, pastries and pastries; we also come to the art and the way of the first profession of gastronomy and we realize, says Mrs Panzano, that taste disappears as small businesses close their doors. Fortunately, the Saint-Honore resists, long life at the Saint-Honoré!

It is also a structure regrouping 18 collectives and associations which established its headquarters in the former Geneva gold-roughing factory, a building located on the Rhône river, in the immediate vicinity of the Bâtiment des Forces motrices, and allocated by the commune to the association “State of Emergencies” in 1989. The association claims an ethic of life and work based on “self-management, pleasure and openness to others”. Its programming is characterized by its innovative character, at the margins of the market and its logic of profit. The most visible aspect of the factory is the programming of shows, events, festivals, concerts and exhibitions in the various places that compose it: concert halls, nightclubs, art galleries, theater, cinema and various branches dedicated to the development of creative and recreational activities.
