There’s no shortage of ice-cream sellers in the old town, but this maître glacier (master ice-cream maker) has been king of the scoops since 1966. The array of flavours is mind-boggling – olive, tomato, fig, beer, lavender and violet are just a few to try. Dither too long over the 70-plus flavours and you’ll never make it to the front of the queue. For a Niçois twist, ask for tourte de blette (a sweet chard tart with raisins, pine kernels and parmesan).

The queues at the main branch are long on hot summer days, but they’re generally shorter at the second branch around the corner.
