“Le Café” by Vesuvio (Cannes, France)

“Le Café” certainly did not disappoint! My hopes were high because it was under the same management as “Le Vesuvio”, the restaurant where I found the salmon pizza that I [still] dream about. (I’ll be posting another blog entry especially for it.)

The accommodating waitress literally explained each food on the menu for me & my two other non-French-speaking colleagues. I’m glad she did or I might’ve been forced to order some safe sounding pasta that could've turned out tasting like an ordinary dish that I should’ve just gotten in a more affordable restaurant.

Instead, I had the most fantastic truffle risotto, “Rizotto aux truffe”. There was this unforgettable taste of pungent, earthy, mushroom flavor blended with garlic! I couldn’t understand the French description on the menu but surely it had some shallot onions, hazelnut butter, truffle mushrooms, shaved cheeses, cream, rice, white wine, and truffle oil.

Maj had the “Coquilles St Jacques et purée de céleris” which was scallops with mashed potatoes, cream of tomatoes, gooseberry, and chestnuts. It was awesome! We actually chose the two dishes we both liked then shared.

We were seated outdoors, just a few meters across the Croisette Beach, Cannes, France.

Irina ordered her usual “Millefeuille de tomates mozzarella”: An easy pick of soft, nicely textured, fresh mozzarella cheese; with sliced layers of tomatoes; basil & other greens.

Interesting childhood knick-knacks


By the end of this early-dinner, it was a good time to walk the dogs along Boulevard De La Croisette. And then to Croisette Beach, right across Le Café... just as the sun was setting.

(Grateful for memories such as these…)

I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? suppose you were tto create a killer post title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't good, however what if you added a title
to maybe get folk's attention? I mean ""Le Caf� by Vesuvioo (Cannes, France)" is kinda boring.
You should peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post titles to grab viewers
interested. You might add a video or a related picture
or two to grab readers excfited about what you've written. Just my
opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
