Whether you want an American-style bagel, healthy eggs and avocado or traditional croissants, Cannes – a jewel in France’s famous Riviera – has a lot of wonderful breakfast and brunch spots. Some are by the sea, some are Italian in origin, and some just offer a friendly welcome with wonderful homemade delicacies. Here’s our guide to the best in town.

Bagel Café

Cafe, Contemporary, Vegetarian

People love the Bagel Café, not just for its bagels, but also for its homemade cakes and cookies. Be warned though, bagels in France tend to taste like baguettes, but in a bagel shape. They are not like the kind you find in London or New York, but they’re absolutely delicious all the same! Check out their Facebook for daily specials and offers. They’re closed on Sundays.

Le Voilier

Brasserie, Restaurant, French, Vegetarian

Le Voilier is open at 8am every day but they only do food from the kitchen (other than breakfast croissants) after midday. They do a lot of fish-based dishes but have great brunch items if you order off the snack menu – croque monsieurs, omelettes, club sandwiches, etc. – and some profiteroles or seasonal fruit plates to finish. They change their hours slightly from summer to winter, so make sure to check online before you go. Reservations are advised.

Pat & Jo Café

Cafe, North American, French, Vegetarian

The Pat & Jo Café is an American café, but with a French twist – it might have a quiche or a pasta on the menu, just as much as a bagel with cream cheese and carrot cake. It’s very popular with the local crowds due to it’s friendly service, but bear in mind that it’s closed on Sundays.

Plage du Goéland

Brasserie, French

This beach restaurant, owed by the Grizzetti family, is a great spot on the Croisette. From 8:30 in the morning, you can make the most of the breakfast menu and sit by the sea, enjoying the private beach on the premises. It also has WiFi, so if you want to, you can hire a sun lounger and take advantage of the great service all day long.

Sous le Soleil Exactement

Cafe, French

Sous le Soleil Exactement, which gets its name from a Serge Gainsbourg song, is a little bit further out of town than the others and it isn’t on the beach, but regulars love it nonetheless. It has a simple menu; everything is homemade and people love the friendly atmosphere. For breakfast you can try the French fruit plates. It’s closed on the weekends.

Lenôtre Cannes

Patisserie, French

Lenôtre is a well-established Parisian institution. In 1947, baker Gaston Lenôtre opened a pastry shop in Normandy and then expanded throughout Paris, specialising in pastry and cakes. He is a reputed chef – he opened a pastry school in the 1970s and has trained many of France’s famous bakers. The branch in Cannes has been in existence for a while and offers wonderful sweet things for breakfast.

Rush Gastronomie Rapide

Sandwich Shop, Healthy

The choice of “gastronomie rapide” is an apt choice of name, with this little spot serving quick and healthy juices, salads, and sandwiches. The location is right by the train station, so it’s perfect for discerning taste buds in a rush. Certainly, it’s orders of magnitude above what we would traditionally think of as fast food. Disregard cheeseburgers and fries, and sample soup and a sandwich instead. Expect daily specials of quiche made with organic ingredients and a carrot and cumin juice.

Noisette Café et Cuisine

Cafe, Italian

Noisette Café et Cuisine serves up tasty Italian treats for breakfast or brunch (a noisette in French is an espresso with a little dollop of milk). These guys love their coffee and make fresh pasta and charcuterie plates. They’re open all day and the service is friendly. They even sell olive oils and other Italian goodies. What’s not to love?

Le Troquet à Soupes

Cafe, Restaurant, Contemporary, French, Vegan, Vegetarian

Le Troquet à Soupes makes all its soups with love; they’re all homemade. People love the different flavours, the cheese and meat plates and the vegan options. They sometimes do raclettes and the salad ingredients come fresh from the nearby Marché Forville. It has a very central location by the Old Port so it’s a handy pit-stop when you’re sightseeing. Check out Facebook for more up-to-date information.

Warner Café

Brasserie, North American, American, French

This American-style brasserie serves up brunch-style food in a convivial atmosphere with friendly service. It’s not far from the Croisette, so it can get busy. They do a mixture of US food with a little French inspiration thrown in for good measure. Check out their Facebook page for daily menu details.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
