This isn't a restaurant, it's a patisserie, but there doesn't appear to be a category for food shops in TripAdvisor! The Blea is excellent - make sure that you have plenty of tissues because it's very sticky, flaky and luscious and covered in powdered sugar. The proprietors are extremely friendly (one is English) and the premises are quaint and full of character. They have the only remaining original wood burning bread oven in Nice, which they told me that people come in just to look at! The range of products is extensive. Not easy to find though. It's right next to a lovely church, locally known as the Gesu, so I found it while wandering around taking photos of the surrounding area.

This is a good specialty bakery in Vieux Nice. It isn't easy to find - so it better be good! They also speak American! Wish we could have tried more. Next time, we'll bring an extra stomach. Those desserts looked amazing.

Everything we are here tasted so fresh.

I can honestly say it was the best quiche I've ever had in my life.

We loved it so much we bought loads to take home and enjoy over the next couple of days

Warm fresh bread, the smell lingers in the air teasing your nose.

Array of cakes and pastries try and tempt you.

Lovely staff, very happy to help.

Will definitely be back. I can't stop thinking about that beautiful quiche !

Entered this place by accident on our way to the beach and fell in love with products...we have been there in total 5 time during one week, despite the fact it was a 10 minute walk. Baguettes, Quiche, piece d'almandes, petite fluetes, everything is just marvelous and the shop owners are super-friendly and explain everything. Would love to have such a great bakery at home...and even if i would need to walk for 20 minutes.
