Promenade de la Pantiero, Cannes, France
What better to do on a sunny summer’s day in beautiful Cannes than enjoy a sandwich overlooking the port? That’s what K and I asked ourselves while we visited the city famous for its film festivals and luxurious lifestyle. The answer was: Nothing.
We spotted Philcat while just exploring the city – a little white cabin located right in the middle of the port, quite far removed from most of the high-end shopping and restaurants. They offer a multitude of sandwich options as well as salads and tarts – everything one needs for a great lunch. The owners were absolutely lovely and helped to explain all of the items on the menu, and prepared everything fresh, right in front of us.
The panini that I ordered was fantastic – beautifully grilled and filled with fresh ingredients and ooey gooey cheese – I’m salivating just thinking about it. An apple tart tatin finished off our meal perfectly. While we didn’t have any salads ourselves, we saw a few being made for other customers, and they looked very generous and delicious.
Whether you’re visiting Cannes just for the day, or staying in the city for a while, and want to try something other than the ridiculously expensive options available, Philcat is definitely worth a visit (or two).
