Nice/Eze/Antibes, France: Affordable food pleasures.

Cosy Cool | May 27, 201605:14 PM     2

Dear Chowhounds,

We (family of four) are headed to Provence in a couple of weeks. I know there are several posts about the area, but from what I have seen, tips concentrate on fine dining. This is somewhat out of our budget, but also not our aspiration. We enjoy simple, local experiences that don't have to be mega fancy: I am as happy standing on a sidewalk with the best croissant in town for 2 Euro as I am in a Michelin resto.

So: which charcutier has the best rillettes, which bakery makes special macaroons, what's your favourite stall at a market, where are the freshest oysters? Are there local specialities that I don't know about? These are the things that make me happy.

If anyone can contribute the source of such little pleasures (cafes, shops, markets, brasseries, stalls, simple restaurants) that have something excellent to offer, I would be most grateful. I will repay by reporting back with photos after our trip.

Thanks in advance!
