Eat and drink – JUAN LES PINS (‘Juan les Pains’ and ‘Boulangerie de l’Esterel’)

Every village, town or city in France has a bakery (boulangerie) supplying baguettes, croissants and baked goods.

If you are looking for a couple of good options for buying croissants or a quick snack, here are my recommendations below for Juan les Pins:

‘Juan les Pains’

Located at the intersection of 17 avenue du Maréchal Joffre and avenue Louis Gallet, this ground-level boulangerie/snack restaurant offers fresh bread, sandwiches, coffee, smoothies, and icecreams.  It has an accessible toilet for patron use.  They offer ‘combo’ menus (formule) for example – €7 for a baguette sandwich, can of soft drink and sweet pastry for lunch.  It is centrally located and a short walk from the beachfront, with ample tables for seating. Tip: The coffee here is not outstanding – for a better coffee, as you exit the Juan les Pins train station the first shop to the right is a small local bar; they make a good espresso (un café) for about 1,70€.

Boulangerie de l’Esterel

A short stroll from the train station, this combined boulangerie/pâtisserie situated at 6 avenue de l’Esterel offers fresh bread, quiches, and sweet goods including cakes, fruit tarts and macarons.  They make one of the best miniature citron tarts in Juan les Pins (taste tested by me many times!).  Accessible toilet inside the small premises, however if you have a baby buggy or are a wheelchair user please be aware that there is a very small step into the shop from the pavement.

If you have any recommendations for other good boulangeries in Juan les Pins, please let me know via and I will be sure to visit and review them.
