Fodor's Review

This back-alley landmark is the most popular dive in town for socca, the chickpea-pancake snack food unique to Nice. Rustic olive-wood tables line the street, and curt waiters splash down your drink order. Then you get in line, choose your plate, and carry it steaming to the table yourself. It's off Place Garibaldi on the edge of the Vieille Ville, across from the old bus station. If you're looking for a veritible Niçois memory, this is it.
