the Cannes institution

It’s impossible to miss Vilfeu, this Cannoise institution with its bluish front and “American diner” look. 45 years of existence, 3 generations, and a unique know-how, have allowed this master ice-cream maker to become one of the best in France. The creator of the cottage cheese sorbet that earned him his reputation, this artisan of taste has never stopped innovating with more than 80 flavours to be discovered and constantly renewed. Vanilla/safran, yuzo/pomegranate or oat milk/buckwheat and even hay, ribot milk and praline, are all surprising mixtures, anchored in their time, that you can taste just a few steps from the Croisette.

Los Pistoleros

a Cannois success

A real success story for “Los Pistoleros” ice creams, created by 3 young Cannois. For the past 3 years, there has been a real national craze for their innovative concept imported from Mexico. Paletas, these fresh fruit-based ice cream sticks, which have been consumed since the 1930s in this colourful country, have won over ice cream aficionados thanks to their natural composition, with no flavouring, no preservatives and no colouring. These concentrated fruity flavours are now available in organic versions or with added delicacies such as biscuits, and can be eaten all over Cannes, from the beaches to the city centre.

The ice island

Tutti Frutti!

Freshly taken over by a pastry chef, l’île de la Glace has managed to make a new name for itself thanks to a flavour that can only be found in Cannes, the “Côte d’Azur”, an ice cream that borrows its taste and colour from a famous blue orange liqueur. But in the heart of the bins, the real stars are the fruits. Juliette, the neo-ice-cream chef, likes to concentrate the fruit flavours in a natural recipe without preservatives or colouring. To respect tradition, the ingredients come from Italy and for the sake of indulgence, the ice creams are also available in family-size tubs to enjoy at home!
