It had been just about two months since my last tea and scone “fix” so when I proposed trying to fit in an outing to the Théière qui Rit or Laughing Teapot (15, Rue de la Cite, Geneva 1204, Switzerland 022 310 36 40) my housemate was more than happy to schedule it with me.
I inevitably have the “petite folie” (little madness), which is a pot of their chosen tea accompanied by a scone, butter, jam and cream. As good as in Cornwall? Perhaps not, but certainly the best that Geneva has to offer in this niche.
You know the saying “Veni, vidi, vici” ("I came, I saw, I conquered"). Below is the aftermath. And, yes, lunch will be light!
