On a recent visit to Geneva I had the opportunity to attend Funky Brunch, a pop-up brunch event that is making waves across Geneva and will soon be making waves across the world. The founder of Funky Brunch is a dear friend of mine and she invited me to attend with my family friends as her guest, friends with foodie benefits!
The event is hosted monthly at various venues across Geneva and attracts people from all walks of life, it was such a beautiful sight to see so many ethnic groups and ages in one space enjoying the great atmosphere, food and music that is the signature style of Funky Brunch.
The Funky Brunch that I attended was hosted at The Starling Hotel which is just a stone’s throw away from Geneva’s International Airport. We were welcomed warmly by The Funky Brunch Ambassadors and were shown to our seats. The food layout is nothing short of spectacular, with an amazing variety of breakfast, lunch and dessert choices on offer. I am very particular about the types of buffets I choose to eat from and I was impressed by the layout and swift maintenance of the buffet area. The food was fresh and well prepared and tasted as it would if you were to order it “a la carte”.
One of the highlights was the omelette station at which your omelettes are made fresh to order before your very eyes, I had a simple cheese and mushroom omelette and it was made perfectly. The Cheese station was also my favourite…all that cheese and so little time. There was just so much food! I was spoilt for choice. The mini meringues were a delicious sweet treat, I topped mine of with some passionfruit and it was just perfect.
With a DJ playing soul and RnB music in the background and a children’s entertainer to keep the kids distracted after their meals, there really is something for everything at Funky Brunch. I felt the funk and by the end of the afternoon it felt like I had eaten the funk too! Watch my short film about the experience here:
Funky Brunch will be making it’s way across Europe and The world soon so keep an eye on their social media pages. But when you’re in Geneva this really is the place to be so try to plan your foodie trip around their next event, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
