Today we decide to please your taste buds by proposing you our top 5 of the best bakeries/pastry shops in Nice.
1- Les Petits marchands
In the Port area, Place Max Barel, discover Les Petits Marchands, a new bakery and delicatessen. It is located inside a new building in the form of a gourmet hall. This place was imagined by several epicureans from Nice: the Baptiste brothers, Louis Bonifassi, Loïs Guenzati and Philippe Canatella. This new place is very design and contemporary and wishes to highlight local quality products.
On the sweet side, the delicacies are prepared by Cédric Servala, a renowned pastry chef. You will find beautiful praline brioches, fresh bread and many other pastries…
2- Chez les Garçons
In the city center of Nice, near the avenue Notre Dame, is this new coffee shop, Chez les Garçons. You will find delicious home-made pastries. It is possible to take them away or to taste them on the spot. Nestor & Jeeves has tasted the specialties of the coffee shop and we recommend you to try :
- The Cloud, a delicious lychee mousse on a madeleine cookie

- Le Rocher, a milk chocolate mousse with a touch of vanilla and praline
3 – La Niçoise Bakery
In the heart of downtown Nice, on rue Gioffredo, you will find the bakery La Niçoise run by the Bordonnat House. This establishment is famous for its many sweet and savory products, but especially for its baguettes!
