I have visited L'Instant Gourmand several times in Menton and it is a wonderful Cafe that features artisan pastries. The husband/wife owners are very friendly and welcoming. The coffee and tea selections are numerous and all are expertly prepared. The croissants, pain au chocolates, and brioche selections are freshly baked each day and as one gets within a block of the cafe you can smell the enticing aroma. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and they are both child and pet friendly. The prices are very reasonable and I find it difficult to leave without picking up a baguette to bring home. They are open from 7AM till early evening and also serve slices of pizza, quiches, and panini sandwiches. I would definitely recommend stopping in and checking this one out.
