LA POPOTE D’ONDINE – BEST NEW CAFE IN NICE?

Petite critique gastronomique pour Riviera Buzz. Litlle food review for Riviera Buzz.

Popote

Rue Gioffredo in Nice is home to many a fine café and eatery, but we think that we may have found its crowning glory – La Popote d’Ondine.

With its blue facade and ornate old lighting fixtures, you could be forgiven for thinking that this new eatery on rue Gioffredo is just another cosy cafe among so many others popping up around town. However, if the lines out the door are any indication, you will soon realize that La Popote d’Ondine could well be Nice’s newest hidden gem.

Since opening last April, it has fast become the perfect place to grab a snack on the go, or to linger for hours in a relaxing atmosphere.

The staff is friendly and courteous, offering food that can best be described as follows:-

Simple – all the dishes are what you would expect to find in a typical neighbourhood café for a quick lunch (quiches, bagels, salads with various choices of toppings….) or for a nice breakfast (croissants, hot chocolate, detox options…)

Healthy – all the ingredients are fresh, seasonal, organic and locally produced

Reasonably priced – many formulas under €10 are available. For example, a sandwich with a drink or a desert will only cost you €5.40

Delicious – everything, from the savory plates to the cakes, is yummy and big on flavour.

And to top it all off, the place is nicely decorated with old pictures on the walls as well as a living room style interior and a little terrace for those who want to take their time.

Thanks to the positive word of mouth, La Popote d’Ondine has ironically become a victim of its own success, particularly on Saturdays. But truth be told, it doesn’t really matter…the culinary experience is definitely worth the wait!
