“Perfect for a local experience and great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

As one reviewer said, there is nothing "special" about the rue Meynadier, but that's exactly why it is so great. Save for a few tourist traps, most of the stores are frequented by true "cannois", people going to buy fresh cheese, meats, a good bottle of wine, or pick up a new dress or pair of shoes.
There are very few streets like the Rue Meynadier in other countries. There is an authentic feel to the street that makes it special. It is not plagued with chain restaurants or stores like the Gap, Sephora, or Zara. The majority the stores and restaurants are locally owned. yet, it does not have the feel of a cheap market where bargaining is required. It's a nice street that is definitely worth a stroll. Plus, as you get towards the end of the street, you can hook a right and go up to the marché Forville, and that is another fantastic experience.
Have fun and enjoy, and please, keep an eye on your wallet and purses. There are many tourists there, and therefore pickpockets will be there as well.

“cheap shops and restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

This is a bustling, colourful street that the kids love as well because there's so much nick-knack, souvenirs, food and sweets here. This year I noticed a fish-spa as well! Did not try this. There is a shop selling shells and things made of shells and other exotic items, which is well worth a visit. The cake shop on the lower corner (Ernest Traiteur) has disappointed us every time we have been tempted to buy something.

“a real Cannes experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is where people go for real souvenirs. A forgotten sibling of La Croisette, there is such a variety - cheese shops, patisseries, clothes shops, pharmacies, supermarkets.... a true French place in my mind. The road winds and meanders but that is part of the charm. Definitely walk down here on your way from Le Suquet to the shopping district.

“Get your beach towels..haha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

great street for cheaper selection of clothing and shoes. Also all the beach goers who couldn't travel with stuff can shop here. There are some nice olive oil, pastry , soap and condiment shops as well.

“Nice pedestrian street for an early-evening stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Rue Meynadier is the low-end cousin of Rue d'Antibes and Croisette. This certainly has a lot of character. This pedestrian street is very commercial, with a bunch of touristy low-end stores, many selling local/Provençal products, as well as some restaurants and the Carrefour supermarket. You can try many French savouries such as macarons, pastries and great breads (try both Paul as well as the great bread store nearby). While it hums with activity during the day but looks desolate at night.
