Finally, a place that rivals Rohr

Many years ago in Cannes, there was an incredible pastry shop called Rohr, on the corner of rue d'Antibes and rue Hélène Vagliano. In 2000, it closed and was sold to Lenôtre, a pastry shop chain that, despite its reputation, cannot make a pastry to save its life. That same year, a very close... read more

Superlatives do not adequately describe the produce, preperation quality and service. Truly in my top 5 gastronomic experiences in the last 12 months.

the only problem visiting an award-winning place like this is that your stomach can't possibly sample all the pastries and chocolate treats on offer. but do the best you can while you are there...and take the rest home with you. one of my favourites: candied orange slices covered with dark chocolate. i carefully rationed the large bar and managed to...

The chef is world champion pastry, so to integrate to you repertoire of taste signatures. The cakes are very well executed, technically beautiful, aesthetically as well. A shop in an hotel with a good design. People are nice. Speaking of taste, I must admit that I find the work a bit too sweet, too "sugared" for me. But I'am particulary... More

Nice little café with on-street seating a couple of rows back from the Croisette....for that alone it's worth a recommendation. Then there are the cakes, and the almost nonchalant notice among them that they are made by the world pastry champion....OMG!!! Cakes this good could easily sell for several times what Intuitions charge, and the macaroons in particular are beyond... More

Stunning display of sweets and cakes which are so temptingly presented they are almost impossible to refuse, had a selection with coffee in the lobby on the recommendation of the young polite member of staff. I had a small slice of an Orange muffin type of cake with a small gateau which were just divine. Well worth a visit to... More

Sampled here several desserts and all were extraordinary - Paris-Brest or Opera dessert are fabulous.

He's not won the award of world pastry champion for nothing! Superb deserts to eat in or takeaway and not at ridiculous prices. Macaroons are highly recommended. Polite, friendly shop assistant that spoke excellent English. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, and it's just off the main shopping street, so not even out of the way.

Yes, it is in the lobby of the hotel, and yes, you get exactly what you want : the best sweets ever. They also serve thick italian style chocolate.
