There are some wonderful cafes in Nice. Whether you are looking for a brunch spot or a place to have your goûter, the sweet snack the French have daily at 4 pm (usually pastries or chocolate), here’s our run-down of the best and most-loved cafes in Nice.
Manao is a small juice bar, offering pure fruit juices and smoothies. It’s worth dropping by to get some much-needed vegetables and fruits into your diet (as well as the ice cream). Time Out called them ‘fun, funky and, above all, healthy.’
This little place, Cafés Indien, has been roasting their own beans since the 1940s and is one of the most divine coffee bars in Nice (many think it has the best coffee). It sells bags of coffee, and there is a little coffee bar to taste it fresh. They also have a great selection of teas.
Déli Bo is a little coffee shop in Nice that serves wonderful drinks and great pastries that are very imaginative. The coffees are organic and the teas are interesting. It’s small but perfectly formed. Check out their Facebook page for daily images of interesting delights.
Every week, between 11 am and 3 pm, the restaurant on the beach at Plage Beau Rivage hosts a lovely lunch with an amazing view. There are 2 choices: the Petit Dejeuner Complèt (‘full breakfast’) or the Grande Assiette Complète (‘the big plate’). The first is a continental breakfast with pastries, chocolate, different bread and jams while the second has eggs, ham and potatoes. Both include a hot drink and a freshly-squeezed orange juice. All overlooking the beach on the Promenade des Anglais. Bliss.
