This small coffee is small, nice and very cheep right after the Hotel de Ville. It could go for 3 stars, but half a star I added for the cheap price of wine and another half a star for the name it bears. I suspect there were a couple of real local poets in there, and at least one international.

Second visit after coming to Cannes last year, excellent coffee at an excellent price. Enjoyable for people watching as it was quite busy at the time. Friendly owner.

Just a pitstop for us, needed a cold beer in the summer heat. Service was good, we got the needed attention, so quickly there was beers and snacks on the table. Perfekt place to sit and look at the many people walking by.

Small cafe restaurant in a tiny pedestrian street just behind the busy main road through Cannes. Very quaint, very friendly. I had soft drink, toasted ham & cheese plus coffee. Tasty & reasonably priced.

We called at this place quite often, either for breakfast, lunch or just a beer in the afternoon. It is conveniently situated opposite the rear entrance to the Hotel du Ville on Rue Felix Faure, and has an entrance at the rear into Rue Meynadier, just by the Marché Forville, with outdoor seating in both areas.

The place is basic but the coffee is nice. And the barman is friendly and open to adapting the menu. Only bad points, waffle chantilly was slightly burned, and the terrasse is the smoking area which blows on the first tables inside.

Basically, the only thing that attracted me is free Internet (password: cafepoet06). Ice cream was good, too.
