The mercury is rising, and this is just the beginning. Everyone knows that summer is always hot in Paris, so there’s nothing for it but to cool off with some of that good ice cream! However, we seem to have a yearning for something more exotic than the traditional strawberry-vanilla-chocolate fare, so it’s time to check out new ice creams chosen from the offerings of the most original glaciers of the capital. Here are some of the best ice cream parlours in Paris.
Carried away by the Bac à Glaces
From the first rays of the sun, this glacier juggles classics and innovative flavours such as eau-de-vie kirsch sorbets. Here, everything is homemade. No dyes, no preservatives or flavour enhancers ... just natural goodness!

Maison Fabien Foenix, ice cream from starter to dessert
