Mr. & Mrs. Renou

There is nothing to do in Switzerland on Sundays, but walk. Walk passed closed everything, aside from the very odd bakery. Lucky for my friend and I, one of those odd bakeries was Mr.& Mrs. Renou in Carouge. What a site this was to accidentally stumble upon. It’s supposedly one of the best in the…
