Cafe, Bakery, Ice Cream Parlour, French
The most famous Parisian ice cream parlor, Berthillon has been an institution in Paris for locals and tourists since the 60s. Gothic lettering and a plain façade hold the queues at bay, which sometimes reach around the corner on Île-Saint-Louis. With more than 60 parfums, or flavors, 30 of which change according to the season and whim of the expert glaciers (ice cream makers), Berthillon has something for everyone’s taste. The options range from a rich, velvety vanilla to a playful strawberry sorbet to an intriguing salted caramel or pineapple basil. Try mixing and matching to create your own Frankenstein of creamy goodness.
