Gourmet Paris: unusual ice cream

Gourmet Paris: unusual ice cream

Situated in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, near major cultural centres such as the Olympia and the Louvre, is the Hotel Volney Opéra. During your summer stay in this comfortable and convivial establishment, you’ll surely get the urge for a delicious and refreshing icy treat. If so, you’re in luck because you’ll find the charming shops of innovative glaciers scattered throughout the French capital. Each offers a whole range of tempting chilly delights, from creamy Italian ice creams to truly original sorbets. Here’s a quick roundup of some of the places in Paris where you can find unusual ice cream.


Glazed; unusual ice cream and a rock sensibility

Since 2014, this ice artisan has offered more than 30 different flavours of ice creams and sorbets. As deliciously demonstrated by its Dissidente lolly with pineapple and Espelette pepper, Glazed creates explosive and offbeat flavours, all served amidst a rock inspired decor.


Pozzetto; the best of Italian ice cream

Savouring a cone of stracciatella gelato from Pozzetto while strolling the streets of the Marais is a must. This glacier on the Rue du Roi de Sicile offers an icy taste of Italy. Chocolate, hazelnuts, honey, pistachio; it's an explosion of flavours on the Parisian ice cream scene that uses only the finest carefully chosen ingredients imported from Italy.


Le Bac à Glaces; a master ice cream maker for 60 years

Here's a great place to go when you need a tasty way to cool off from the heat of the Parisian summer. Le Bac à Glaces is an ice cream parlour that offers French artisanship, natural ingredients and the supreme savoir-faire of the maitre pâtissier Julien Yoel, grandson of the founder. The Bac à Glaces menu consists of additive-free ice creams with a low sugar content. Proven family recipes passed on from generation to generation are the keystone of the success of a business that supplies famous Parisian restaurants.
