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.
