The French love Coffee. There's no denying that fact! Whether it'd be in Paris or the French Alps, you'll find them sipping a hot cup when they get the time. It's probably why café society is so strong in this country. Just about everywhere you turn, you'll find one, two, or even more coffee shops, all filled with customers chatting, reading, working, and the like. Here in Cannes, of course, cafés are also a dime a dozen even though it's a coastal city. But which ones should you choose to get the best coffee? Here are a few suggestions.
Everyone knows that the taste isn't enough for a great coffee experience. At times, how it's presented holds just as much weight as how it tastes. This is the philosophy that has made Itineraire Café one of, if not the most popular café in the city. Once you order a flat white here, you won't just get that jolt of caffeine you wanted, but an adorable Instagram-worthy cup that's bound to garner a lot of likes. Add to that the sweet and chilly frappés that help you cool down in this hot and sunny coastal city.
Standing near College International De Cannes
, one of the few prominent international schools in Cannes
, Café Pico is often crowded with students and young professionals alike. And it's not just because it's near the school! For one thing, this coffee shop is among the more affordable in the city as every single item costs less than €10.00. Then there's the food, a scrumptious menu of international cuisine that includes American-style hamburgers, Italian-born paninis, and homemade croquettes, among many others. Because of this, Café Pico has become a lunch hotspot in the city so you might want to go here in the afternoon if you simply want to relax with a hot cup of coffee.
You're in Cannes! No matter what you do here
, it's better to do it outside under the bright Mediterranean sun! Yes, that includes enjoying a hot cup of coffee too! If you're in need of some caffeine but you don't want to let go of that luxurious sunshine, go to Factory Café! Located near La Croisette Boulevard, one of the most famous areas in the city (and a great place to shop
too!), this is a stylish coffee shop that's all about upscale coffee drinking. Peruse the people who stroll by, the luxury cars that zoom past you, and breathe in the sea breeze while you're here!
The Bagel Café
Don't worry! Despite its name, bagels aren't the only pastries available in The Bagel Café. This hotly popular coffee shop along Rue Hoche also serves a myriad of sandwiches, desserts, and even a baguette or two! You can definitely enjoy your cup of coffee with as many treats as you want. However, at times, that may not be the healthiest. After all, drinking too much coffee can also harm your health. So to avoid having to go to the hospitals in the city
, you can also go for the café's signature organic smoothies too. Best believe that they're just as tasty!
Volupté Anytime Café
On the opposite side of the spectrum, there's Volupté Anytime Café. While The Bagel Café offers a healthier option for your coffee drinking, this place is all about letting you indulge in all the sweetness. You remember the saying, 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do,
' right? Well, since you're in France and the French are known to love sweets, why not just enjoy a delectable dessert with your hot cup of coffee? Pastries, confections, cookies, and more await those who have a sweet tooth. As for your coffee of choice? Nothing will taste sweeter than Nutella cappuccino, the place's specialty!
Here in Cannes, café society reigns supreme with so many amazing coffee shops on offer! But if you truly want outstanding coffee paired with delicious food and a good time, these five exceptional cafés are it!
