The promenader on La Croisette in Cannes is prone to get hot, thirsty and sometimes even hungry as one walks, jogs, skates or cycles up and down this most famous of seafronts.
It’s a good job then that there is a series of food and drink kiosks along its length and beyond right around to the public beaches of Cannes La Bocca. Each kiosk is numbered which is useful for meeting up with others or as an aide memoire to where you parked your car.
Kiosk Le 8 is situated near the merry-go-round at the Palais des Festivals end of La Croisette.
It’s hard to resist something cold and sweet on a hot French Riviera summer’s day:
the ice-cream seller
points out the way to me
with an ice-cream
