Antibes is a coastal town situated between Cannes and Nice on France’s Côte d’Azur. The region is famed as a popular luxury holiday destination for those seeking the blue skies and warm weather of the south of Europe, and boasts some of the most stunning coastal landscapes on the continent. The resort town also benefits from its proximity to Italy and has done throughout history, being a site of strategic importance throughout the Roman Empire. The French and Italians are also alike in their adoration of great coffee, so many great coffee shops can be found in the town, here are some of the best.
Lucky Break is the ideal spot for tasty homemade desserts, delicious coffees and fresh smoothies served in a cozy cave-like basement. Visitors are guided down the steps to the main seating area, which is stylishly decorated in cool grey shades, making for a pleasant break from the ferociously hot sun of the South of France. Service is friendly and warm, and the cakes and coffees are always immaculately presented.

Le Café Jardin
This cafe is a somewhat odd combination of tabac, bar and coffee shop but makes for a fantastic lunchtime experience in a beautiful setting. The cafe has a spectacular hidden garden complete with a shaded patio, a grape vine, a frog-filled aquarium and a water feature. The outside terrace is also decorated with kitschy garden ornaments and fairy lights to light up the garden in the evening. Stop here for a break from the buzz of the town.
