How do you beat a Paris heat wave or just indulge on a pretty day? Ice cream! For your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of some the tastiest ice cream shops in town:
Located on the rue du Roi de Sicile, Pozzetto is simply the best gelato in Paris! The gelato is smooth, creamy, sticky like it should be, and full of flavor. You can also get a real Italian espresso, which means the Affogato is superb. They have about 10-12 flavors to choose from, each made from carefully selected ingredients like Sicilian pistachios and Torinese hazelnuts. Pozzetto is favored by the guests staying at our apartments, as half a dozen of our Marais apartments are five minutes from the Gelateria.
Pozzetto 39 Rue du Roi de Sicile, 75004 Paris, France
Amorino’s popularity comes from the quality of their ice cream. But what really attracts you are the people walking around the shop with ‘flowers’ of gelato on cones. Yes, you choose two or three flavors, and they shape the scoops to resemble a flower! It’s such a beautiful treat. They offer about 15 flavors, and you can sample before you make a decision. Amorino has several locations depending of where you stay: Le Marais, the Latin Quarter, St Germain or the St Louis Island.
Amorino: 4 Rue de Buci, 75006 Paris
Little is needed to be said about Berthillon, the most famous of all Parisian ice cream shops. They serve the best ice cream in the world. We recommend going to the original parlor, on the St Louis Island, before or after a visit to Notre Dame. Multiple cafés in Paris offer Berthillon ice cream, but it’s at the original shop that you will have the most flavors to choose from.
Berthillon: 31 Rue Saint-Louis en l’Île, 75004 Paris
4. Bac à Glaces
The rue du Bac in St Germain has some of the best chocolatiers, patisseries and of course, ice cream shops. Our favorite is le Bac à Glaces, right behind the Bon Marché. Some innovative and classic flavors include avocado, goat cheese and figs, bitter chocolate, espresso, and honey.
Bac à Glaces : 109 Rue du Bac, 75007 Paris
