Le Fromager in Saint-Paul de Vence offers a nice little stop where you can enjoy different kinds of sandwiches, dried fruits and drinks, tasting cheese and charcuterie and it offers a take away.
The shop also offers a large selection of local French cheeses.
A really small oasis when the legs have to rest and the sugar depots filled up, while enjoying the atmosphere of the old medieval town and its curious visitors.
