“French hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

June 2013: we spent a week in Cannes France and discovered Cannes is not all a "Hollywood" type place. Just a few blocks away from the shore is a real French town. We found a old style French cafe. During our time in Cannes we found local people favored (always a good indicator) Warner cafe. Strolling around Cannes I pitied tourists who patronized restaurants that lured in visitors. Warner cafe has excellent food, generous portions, energetic friendly staff and fair prices. Their hamburger dishes feature better beef than what I encounter in the States. I had perhaps a half dozen meals there all were delicious.The French can function on a piece of buttered bread for breakfast but they understand Americans, Brits and others want something more substantial and offer many options, excellent omelets. The owner, who's name is pronounced "did e ay", purchased a high chair for our 8 month old grandson to use. The wait staff all manage English well and the chief is willing to modify dishes for customers. When we packed the rental car to go to our next stop the Warner staff came out say farewell. We'll be back!

“Perfect place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Located just off the Rue d'Antibes the Warner Cafe has outdoor seating on both sides of the street so you can choose to sit in the sun or the shade. Decorated with an American Diner feel (red leather booths inside) it is open for lunch all year round and also for dinner in the summer months. Background music is light jazz/american classics which is perfect and we actually stopped and had another glass of rosé wine to just relax and enjoy the ambience - and I have since bought the cd !
From outside the tables and chairs look very normal (compared to the swish decoration at some places)..the menu at first glance seems a fairly standard mix of salads, pastas and sandwiches but when you start to read through you quickly see there is a lot more to it and every dish we ordered was perfectly cooked and presented and absolutely delicious. They also have both lunch and dinner "special" menus and taking into account how expensive eating out can be this restaurant has got the mix of quality and service to price just about right.
We actually wanted to try another restaurant one lunchtime to take a break from shopping :) but found ourselves drawn back to the Warner Café....three times !...and each time we had great service and a lovely meal...certainly one to search out and enjoy while in Cannes.

“Excellent cafe in Cannes, well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

My husband and I were searching for a restaurant to have lunch in Cannes and stumbled upon Warner cafe. We loved the decor that makes it look like an American 1950-60's diner but the food is a mix of American and French dining for a very reasonable price. The waiters were very friendly, the food was delicious and the service overall was excellent. I would recommend this cafe to anyone visiting Cannes, it is well worth a visit!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant remembers me of an american diner, really cozy! The service was great, the water was very very nice to us and was ready to answer all our questions about the menu. The dishes were AMAZING! I got a "Salade Chevre Chaud" (salad with goat's cheese) that makes me dream about it until now!! And the prices were line anywhere else in France, not more expensive just because we were in Cannes. Totally worth to pass by and have a great meal!
