After a busy day exploring the beautiful streets of Paris, a deliciously cold ice cream treat is just what the doctor ordered. Grab a cone and continue exploring the city, or sit down, relax, and enjoy the ambiance of these local ice cream parlor favorites.

They make it all – from tasty traditional favorites to unique creations like pear-caramel and mocha tiramisu.
