Cookiemania

The cookie is the new macaroon. An inseparable part of a snack, perfect with tea or a latte macchiato, this small round chocolate chip biscuit is now on the lips of all foodistas. Fiercely trendy, the cookie 2.0 adapts to all tastes and diets. In organic or vegan versions, with ultra-gourmet flavours or unusual colours, the cookie is transformed into a work of art in the heart of the Cannes addresses that have made it a speciality.

Maison Charlotte Busset

Local and Organic

To congratulate yourself on your shopping, there’s nothing like biting into a cookie without feeling guilty! Charlotte Busset’s credo is organic, healthy and tasty cookies. In its rue Hoche showcase, you can enjoy a whole range of gluten-free, vegan and low-sugar biscuits on the spot or to take them away, as well as ultra-gourmet recipes with peanut butter, in the style of the flavours that rocked our childhood, or embellished with fruit or crunchy nuggets.

Emilie’s and the cool kid

The Côte d’Azur pioneer

At the helm of this cookie success story are two Côte d’Azur women who have set up no less than fifteen spots in France and abroad with their famous cookie recipes. In Cannes, it’s on rue Hoche that you should put your shopping bag down to taste the cookie of the day accompanied by a caramel macchiato or a chocochamallow. A local coffee shop with fresh products and home-made pastries.

Jojo’s dough

The star of social networks!

Known far beyond the borders of Cannes, Jojo’s dough has become a cookie reference thanks to Tiktok. Born online, this neo-specialist of this biscuit, which can be declined as much as you like, is dedicated to those who are careful about their figure. Located in the rue Tony Allard, the little pink shop is always busy! Cheesecake flavour, crazy Nutella, white chocolate and hazelnuts, matcha tea and cream, the recipes with generous fillings compete in creativity. Take them to your favourite shopping street to enjoy.

Well-deserved shopping break

in a tea room

Strolling along the Rue d’Antibes or the Croisette, discovering the boutiques, is well worth a break during the day to enjoy a pastry in a cosy and elegant place. The most emblematic tea rooms in Cannes are located in the rue Hoche, just a few metres from each other, where you can either bite into a creation by the youngest world pastry champion in 2009 or sit on the terrace or in the lounge of one of Cannes’ favourite addresses.

The Jérôme de Oliveira patisserie

The emotion of a cake

Winner of the 2008 World Sweet Art Competition, the youngest world pastry champion at the age of 23, Jérôme de Oliveira is considered one of the best pastry chefs of his generation. In the heart of his Cannois setting, he brilliantly revisits the most emblematic recipes of French pastry, plays with textures and brings fantasy and dream to each of his creations. His must-have cake? The Paris-Cannes, a hazelnut-flavoured paris-brest, absolutely divine.

Volupté

Tea tasting at any time

It’s a Cannes ritual when you go shopping in Cannes, start your day or take a break at Volupté, a tea room with a chic and deliciously retro feel. On its immaculate terrace or comfortably installed in the cosy space of its lounge, you can enjoy a range of teas, from the most classic to the most exotic blends, from morning to afternoon. To accompany this tea time, a slice of homemade cake or a nice brioche toast, unless you are a savoury eater, in which case you will be tempted by the minute-made rolls, filled with cold meats and Italian cheeses or marinated salmon with avocado or cream.
