A landmark on Ile St-Louis after more than 3 dozen years in business, the salon de thé Berthillon offers the world’s best selection of ice cream.

Try gingerbread, bitter chocolate mousse, rhubarb, melon, kumquat, black currant and any fresh fruit in season. There are moren than 70 flavors and nothing artificial. 

Parisians flock here in such numbers that gendarmes have been called out to direct the traffic of ice cream aficionados. 

In wintertime it’s more calm and you can warm yourself over a nice cup of hot chocolat that comes in a silver can.
