Day 111: Faux Berthillon

When the day is long and warm, a lovely little treat is to get a cone of ice cream/ sorbet and enjoy it while taking a stroll along the quay of River Seine. One of the most famous gelateries in the city is Berthillon on rue St-Louis-en-l’Ile, which I drop by every so often. I loooove their parfum caramel au beurre salé.

Precisely because they’re famous, a large number of “agents” selling Berthillon’s ice cream have mushroomed on Ile-St-Louis, offering more than one location to scout for Berthillon’s goodies. It is particularly handy on an evening like today, when the real deal has closed for the day when we arrived. A few doors away, there you go, an agent of Berthillon’s best. :)

Ps: a delicious alternative to Berthillon is Pozzetto near St Paul – if I am on ice-cream trip with Anne, you’ll always catch us queueing there instead.

    in my younger days at least, Berthillon was closed all day on Mondays and Tuesdays… and on most of the school breaks too, including the summer break. by the time september came along, it got really tricky to find any Berthillon ice cream in the city! but i have to say i haven’t eaten any Berthillon in aaaaages and have totally betrayed them these last years for other spots, including the moving stalls near Luxembourg entrance :) “fraise feuille de menthe” is all i have to add :D

      i haven’t been to that stall a while now. i actually took a picture on the very first day in spring when they started selling again for you, but i think i never emailed it to you…
