Once a week, generally on Thursday or Friday, you can find me at Three Kids for lunch. Three Kids is a tiny lunch joint, with only 3 stools available, tucked in between a flower shop and a clothing store near the old town. The décor is minimalist, neutral beige color on the wall, a black chalkboard where the three kids write down their menu, and big design industrial silver wall plugs for youngsters that need to always be connected, phone fully charged.
Their specialty? Handmade bagels. They make their own bagel dough on-site and it is delicious. Being a U.S. coffee shop lover, I had my share of good bagels while a law school student in the USA. So, you could say I was skeptical when I first tried. But god, they are good! They are fresh! They are tasty!
The truth is, you must come early, before noon, if you don’t want to wait in line, stamping the pavement outside the shop, to get one of their delicious bagels. It is not only good, it is cheap, and that is truly rare in Geneva. They have four types of bagels, named after the different “hoods” of Geneva. They also have vegetarian options and some sweet bagels for your sweet tooth. Their homemade soup is also a must!
Since Spring is coming, finally, you cannot go wrong here, grab a bagel and go for a shopping stroll or an improvised picnic at Jardin Anglais by the Lake.
