Café de Paris

There are lots of cafes along the harbour serving excellent food, in front of the yachts bobbing up and down — they all look much alike. But the Café de Paris is where you will have the best chance of seeing royalty sitting and polishing their sunglasses.


Cafe culture thrives in the Riviera. Every terrace and bar counter has its own, special daily rhythm, get to know them yourself. All along the Cours Saleya, beyond the flower market, the seats are closely packed in a myriad of cafés and restaurants. The cafe bill will not be welcomed by low budget tourists, but you have to face facts — millions of visitors a year cannot be wrong. Sitting here — in the shade or the sun, is a delight for watching and being watched.
