Need advice re Food while taking the narrow gauge from Nice to Digne-les-Bains

So. A group of four staying in Nice are thinking about taking the train to Digne-les-Bains. Should we picnic on the trails or are there decent places for food along the way? Which spots are your favorites?

  1. Is it a day trip or is Digne-les-Bains your destination ? If a day trip to Digne-les-Bains, minimum 7 hours travel time there and back, not very frequent trains, and last train back to Nice at 5 or 6pm... I'd reconsider if I were you. Or do you mean the steam train which only goes from Entrevaux to Annot with connections to/from Nice ? ... as a day trip quite doable if you drop Digne-les-Bains from the itinerary... a few hours in very picturesque Annot with lunch at not-great but not-bad La Table d'Angele is the usual drill.
