Food & Drink
Serious wine cellar; sells chilled magnums of champagne.
Top cheese shop.
Nice, Monaco & Menton
Superb olive oil, fresh from the mill on the outskirts of Nice, for €17 per litre. Alziari also produces a dizzying variety of tapenades (olive spread), fresh olives (plain, stuffed, marinated etc) and other snacks.
Sweet teeth will love the crystallised fruit sold at this traditional sweet shop; the recipes date back to 1820 and the shop is a sight in its own right.
Divine macaroons and chocolates from chef patissier Pascal Lac.
Buy wine from cavistes (cellarmen) who know what they’re talking about: Cave de la Tour has been run by the same family since 1947.
More great olive oil and a wonderful selection of liqueurs (anything from absinth to armagnac, raspberry liqueur and crème de cassis); all are sold in beautiful bottles of various shapes and sizes.
