The famous Parisian ice cream! A must try on a trip to Paris. The portions are small but the flavor delicious! Try the salted carmel and the dark chocolate, they are really great together!Recommended for:

This is hands-down the best ice cream that I've ever had in my life. If you pass by Berthillon anytime during the day during the summers, you will always see a line that goes outside the door. I saw the lines when I spent a summer there, I was curious as to why it got so much business. Then I had their ice cream and understood why. Whether it's peach or chocolate, everything they touch is ice cream gold.Recommended for:

I really don't know what to say aside from: Berthillon has by far the best ice cream I've ever tasted. Not only are there several drool-enducing flavors to choose from (salted-butter caramel, rose-raspberry...), but the texture is creamy and thick like you've never experienced before.
On top of all this, Berthillon is located smack in the middle of the equally delicious Ile Saint-Louis, where your fantasies of seine-side summer strolls can be truly complete with an excellent ice cream in hand.
One drawback: the lines can be very, VERY, long. I would highly recommend going to one of the other shops on the island that sell the same ice cream (it will be advertised in the window) to avoid the wait.Recommended for:

Berthillon's boutique is more of a tourist attraction now, but it is respected by the French. Berthillon is sold in many brasseries as well as some supermarkets like Monoprix.
Berthillion offers many many favors from blood orange to spice bread to vanilla. The ice cream is almost as light as a sorbet but richer in flavor (less watery). It's something that you don't want to miss to taste but if you don't want to stand in a ten minute or longer line, just go to a brasserie (better than a tabac) and they'll have some flavors. It doesn't have to be a brasserie near the Ile de France - the ice cream is really all over the city.Recommended for:

When I think "gelato" I didn't think "Paris," not until we stopped in for a scoop of dark chocolate. I had my cone in hand, but just had to stop walking so I could truly appreciate the creamy, rich, resonant flavors. There may be a line, but it's totally worth the wait.

Delicious! An assortment of regular flavors mixed with unique concoctions. The only downside is having to wait in a line stretching down the street. If you're in Paris, I would definitely give it a try at least once.
