#1 GROM: perhaps the best ice cream in Paris (2nd, 4th, 5th & 6th)
In our opinion, GROM is the best ice cream shop in Paris. Launched in Turin in 2003 and quickly found their way to Paris. Their credo: “Il gelato come una volta” (Ice cream as before). And we totally agree! From the first bite we recognize the delicious and honest taste of homemade ice cream. The portions are more than generous, the service as warm as in Italy. They have a wide choice of flavours, both for ice cream and sorbet. You absolutely must have tasted the pistachio.
#2 Berthillon: according to many the best ice cream shop in Paris (4th)
Impossible not to mention Berthillon in this list. According to many, the best ice cream in Paris and popular with tourists and locals alike. Berthillon has been making and selling their famous ice cream since the 1950s. Authentic flavours, without artificial additives. The recipe itself is a well-kept secret in Paris. They also have a salon de thé, with tasty pastries, tea, coffee and chocolate. Nice to know: many brasseries and restaurants also serve Berthillon ice cream.
#3 Pozzetto: intensity and quality of flavors (4th)
In the hip district of Le Marais you can find another excellent ice cream shop, Pozzetto. Ice cream Pozzetto offers only 12 flavours. Not one more, but all made with fresh milk and seasonal fruits. The emphasis is on intensity and quality. Be sure to try the pistachio Pozzetto, it is divine, especially accompanied by white chocolate.

Emmanuel Ryon, one of the co-founders of this ice cream parlor, has already received the prestigious French title of ‘Ice Cream Artisan of the Year’.

They have a shop in the Le Marais and Montmartre districts.
#5 Glaces Glazed: ice creams with a gothic touch (9th)
Glaces Glazed is perhaps the most innovative ice cream in Paris. Ice cream and sorbet with unlikely flavor combinations such as pepper, geranium or even chocolate wasabi! Craftsmanship is their strong point. Say original ice creams and incredible textures.
