We stayed on Ile St Louis where the Berthillon ice cream shop is located. Surprisingly, in August, the shop is closed. Luckily our stay extended into September so we were able to visit the shop on more than one occasion and were spoiled for choice -- all of which was excellent. It can have a very long queue in the afternoons.

When you are on Ile Saint Louis should you go here or to Amorino, well how about both. The flavors at Berthillon are fresh and amazing from first taste till the last lick. Small scoops allow you to try three different flavors on one cone. Lines can be long, portions are small and this is expensive but it is worth the wait and price. Try and compare that is my motto, heck with lunch.

You haven't been to Paris if you haven't tried Berthillon. I've only been here a few times but there's something that makes homemade ice cream irresistible regardless of the weather.

Berthillon is often mentioned in guidebooks as having the "best" ice cream in Paris. These days, the Italian gelato shops sprouting up everywhere are increasingly distracting tourists from this tucked away icon. There is no denying that Berthillon's ingredients are sublime (one flavor contains Armangnac), and the harder texture, distinctively French; it's worth a try if you find yourself strolling around Ile Saint Louis. Just beware of the several fake "Berthillon" around the same intersection. They serve up the real deal, but will charge between 25 to 50 centimes more per scoop. You're paying enough already.
