Artisanal ice creams, sorbets, fresh or frozen pastries… sweet-toothed foodies will likely fall for this new café ice-cream shop! Created by Stéphane, fond of ice cream since his younger days, Glacier 1891 is first and foremost a family business, where taste of good products is passed from generation to generation.
At Glacier 1891, everyone comes from all over Paris to try the 14 ice cream and sorbet flavors, thoroughly selected by Stéphane and his teams: avocado, white coffee, pistachio from Iran, dates-orange blossom… Flavors change with season and they all have a nice twist likely to surprise even the most demanding taste buds! As for us, we fell in love with the grapefruit-mint flavor, as refreshing as surprising.
If you have a bigger appetite, you may want to add a monaka, a Japanese wafer to create an ice-cream sandwich. Also available, light but delicious frozen pastries: meringue flower, mango and ginger sorbet, white coffee square… A beautiful tribute to Stéphane’s great grandfather, Joseph Gavillon, Ritz pâtissier during Auguste Escoffier’s time!
And because ice creams are not the only things in life, Glacier 1891 also provides lunch menus with cooked dishes inspired by the whole world, as sophisticated as the sweet creations: leeks and vinaigrette, deviled eggs and toasted hazelnuts, fish domburi, grilled scallions and sesame mayonnaise, or even vegetarian curry with Japanese rice to enjoy with home-infused water.
The whole can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace, or upstairs, sat on one of the soft sofas or armchairs. Created by architect Barbara Sterkers, the place with a colorful décor is very friendly and really makes us feel like home… but even better!
