Cool heaven: the best ice cream around the C.O.Q. Hotel
Sunny days have finally returned and with them come a craving for a refreshing and indulgent treat. During your stay in Paris at the C.O.Q. Hotel, you’ll find that the city has no shortage of ice cream parlours. Here are some we recommend, close to the hotel…
Essential ice cream parlours
First on our ice cream essentials list we have Amorino. The famous Italian brand upholds the gelato tradition by turning it into a form of art. Their ice creams are recognisable by their rose shapes and come in a multitude of flavours. A few streets away, you will find another artisanal ice cream parlour that has won the hearts of Parisians: La Tropicale. This beguiling combination of tearoom and ice cream parlour offers homemade ice cream from organic and seasonal ingredients. There's something for everyone, including vegetarians, vegans and those with gluten and lactose intolerance. If you want to taste ice cream worthy of a chef, we recommend that of Chef Laurent Duchêne, Meilleur Ouvrier de France, who offers amazing gourmet flavours in the heart of the 15th arrondissement.
Icy Italian pleasures
Here is an address that we gladly recommend for a deliciously indulgent experience. The Big Mamma brand invites you to discover an establishment full of tasty surprises: La Felicità. Both a market and a restaurant, this lively place is ideal for celebrating the arrival of summer, thanks to its train carriage ice cream parlour called Dolci Vita. In a cone, on a stick or Italian-style, the ice creams are artisanal and contain no additives. Careful, though, the strawberry verbena and lemon basil are definitely habit-forming!
It's always a good time to enjoy an ice cream! And Paris, in summer, offers a huge and varied selection. Cool off in the capital’s ice cream parlours, regularly tested for you by the C.O.Q. Hotel!
