Les Niçois is high on that list. It has everything you could possibly dream of and more for weekend brunch with kids.

First off all it’s spacious, so you can roll up with your bikes, poussettes, and loads of all kinds including your kids and no one will give you side-eye. The menu is thoughtful and plentiful.  Les Niçois has  meat, fish, and veggie options to choose from for mains and then they bring lots of sides (salads, poached eggs, soup, etc), plus dessert, juice and cafe. The kids chose lasagne over the fish. They also went crazy for the side of “french fries”  which was actually panisse, chickpea sticks, a speciality from Nice. Les Niçois is the perfect place for an adult brunch that lasts a little too long made possible by the lower level where kids are looked after by a dedicated staff/weekend babysitters who keeps them entertained with coloring and games. There is also a petanque pit and a baby foot table (aka foosball), when the children need more action.

Les Niçois has also taken a new spot on my fav apero spots. After a long play-date at Square Gardette, the playground in front of the restaurant, we popped in here only to find the same welcoming and chill vibe. In the evenings they offer a menu of tapas (such as grilled octopus, ceviche, fried chicken, vegetables farci) and the children were still free to fun up and down the stairs to play petanque or color. While there was no dedicated staff manning the lower level we noticed the bartender occasionally popped down there to make sure the kids were alright.

The owner Luc Sananes who hails from Nice (hence the name) wanted a restaurant with a mediterranean vacay vibe and that is definitely what I feel every time I go there. Everyone is happy and the staff is laid back and they clearly love children. They aren’t scared of a little chaos so you can relax and enjoy that rosé.
