Day 199: Ben & Jerry’s

I’m starting to think of Place St Michel as “city centre” of Paris and location of choice for many meet-ups . A little bit like the front gate of Trinity College in Dublin kind of thing. It’s easily accessible by public transport, has iconic meeting point (the square in front of the fountain), widely sign-posted and hard to miss while at the same time easy to spot people. Perfect.

Around the square are a number of cafés and bookshops. Unlike many (touristy) cafés and restaurants in central Paris area which prefer to boost the availability of Berthillon ice cream, this one opts to serve Ben & Jerry’s instead. Local and artisanal vs international and factory production – I think I know which one I’d go for ;)

    wait, which one is supposed to be the local one? your sentence makes me feel like you’re talking about Ben and Jerry’s but while i’m unsure about the current “artisanal” status of Berthillon, they are certainly local…:P

      hmmm is berthillon not quite artisanal anymore? somehow i have that impression but of course being a newcomer-ish to the city i have much to learn. definitely local, yes ;)
