Paris is stunning in all seasons, but in summer it has a special flavor.
It is the most exciting season of the year, full of activities, cultural events and festivals. It’s hot and the days are long. Terraces and cafés multiply, parks and gardens are full of tourists and locals because these are great places to have lunch, have a picnic and just to relax.

Below, we have selected 7 ice cream shops for you to enjoy the Parisian summer.
Throughout the year, various specialties are presented, such as lemon sorbet with celery leaves and mastic liqueur, peanut butter ice cream with currant jelly, the indulgent Passy-Sèvres with hazelnut praline and almonds, filled with caramel and our favorite with honey, caramel and caramelized kasha (buckwheat).

Daughter of renowned chocolatier Jacques Génin, Jade Genin is also adventuring into the world of ice cream with her granita creations. Made with fresh and natural ingredients, her granitas are delicious and refreshing. Jade’s creations don’t use crushed ice, but rather finely grated ice, which makes all the difference, leading to a lighter, snowier texture.
You can find various flavors like dark chocolate, almond, honey, strawberry, mango and pistachio.
