This ice cream shop and salon de thé on the small island of Ile Saint-Louis has become a Paris summer staple. For nearly 70 years now, the Berthillon family has been serving sorbets, ice creams, and pastries out of the quaint wood-panelled storefront at 31 Rue Saint-Louis-en-l’Ile.

La glace here has been rated the best ice cream in Paris many times over, and although the staff won’t let you sample the flavors, we can guarantee that whatever you choose you won’t be disappointed. If you’re having a tough time choosing, try the wild strawberry sorbet, sorbet à la fraise des bois it’s how Berthillon first gained fame.

A cornet, or cone, makes for the perfect treat on a hot day before strolling along the Seine or visiting the nearby sights such as Notre Dame or the Conciergerie on the neighboring Ile de la Cité. This legendary Paris ice cream shop is very popular, however, so don’t be surprised to find a fairly long line.
