Although renowned for its croissants, jambons-beurre and macarons, Paris doesn’t really have a big reputation for ice cream. It's a shame, because the capital boasts exceptional artisans who offer world-class frozen delights. Discover the favourites of our team at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet.
The best traditional ice cream makers
To tempt your taste buds, we first want to mention a few places where you can find traditional glacier artisanship. Among these long-established pillars of the Parisian ice cream community there is Berthillon, whose history reaches back to the 50s. Its iced nougats and vacherins are pure delights. If you’re a lover of typical Italian ice cream, step into Il Gelato del Marchese and prepare to be delighted. Finally, to see where the border lies between old-style savoir-faire and a very up-to-date creativity, check out Le Bac à Glaces.
In the contemporary spirit
An all-natural ice cream presented as a delicate flower? Go to Amorino and its succulent Italian-style offerings of bespoke ice cream composed according to your specifications. La Glacerie Paris also offers amazing creations inspired by the seasons to enjoy on the spot or take away. Finally, if you're looking for originality, head to Glazed and sample iced cocktails such as the amazing Pump up the Volume with its mango and espelette pepper flavour.
Paris remains the world’s gourmet capital, where restaurants, bistros, pâtisseries and ice-cream parlours work wonders every day. Ask your team at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet!
