In Nice for a month... need specific advice

Juniper | | Oct 21, 2011 10:26 AM

Hello Hounds!

I am in Nice for a month, and while I have had good success finding Lebanese food and baguettes around my neighbourhood (around le Promenade des Arts), I have been struggling to find a few other things and was hoping the hounds could be of assistance. I'm not looking for anything fancy -- hole-in-the-wall spots are ideal, really.

Specifically, I would love if you could help me to find the following (some of these might be a stretch, I realise):

- A comfortable café where I can sit and do some work (similar to the laidback atmosphere you'd find at Starbucks, where they will not hassle you or give you dirty looks for occupying a table too long). Bonus if they have good coffee (believe it or not, I have yet to find good coffee in the mornings; much of it is pre-sweetened... ick!)

- Almond milk

- I've been in Europe for nearly a year and I have a serious hankering for a proper American burger; juicy, with all the fixins. Bonus if there are milkshakes on the menu. I've managed to locate a McDs and a Quality Burger, but these are not, of course, what I'm after...

- Vietnamese phó. I have found a couple of Vietnamese places and some pan-Asian ones, but none of them really serve phó. With the torrential downpours that happen here from time to time, phó is my comfort food of choice.

- Moroccan food. I tried one restaurant (don't recall the name) and wasn't impressed. I'm thinking there must be a large enough Moroccan population in Nice that I'd be able to find decent Moroccan. Anyone know of a place?

- Yogurt smoothies.

Any leads are welcome!

Thank you in advance!
