What a delight to stroll in the most beautiful districts of Paris in the summer. The sun is shining, we feel relaxed, and wander around the streets… And the sun keeps on shining. Perhaps a tad too much… And to cool off and treat our taste buds, let us head to La Madeleine area: until September 30, 2022, Grand Café Fauchon offers delicious ice creams and granitas to enjoy comfortably seated on a deckchair.
This is not a dream: these are deckchairs set across the Eglise de la Madeleine. Fauchon L’Hôtel Paris invites you to enjoy Fauchon la Plage, an indulging, colorful summery break.
From noon to 7 p.m., every day, come and have made in France ice creams based on flavorsome flavors. The ice cream counter serves vanilla, chocolate, lemon, wild strawberry, mango, salted butter caramel and verbena flavors, with different toppings to choose from for more scrumptiousness.
To pair your snack, you can quench your thirst with Fauchon iced tea granitas. Three options are available: iced peach black tea, iced strawberry green tea and iced lemon green tea with green mint and ginger.
We tried the salted butter caramel and verbena ice creams. Flavors were very marked and well-balanced. The verbena ice cream can taste surprising at first, but it is very addictive. The nuances and subtle notes of verbena explode one after the other for an original option and get something other than the timeless chocolate-vanilla.
The verbena ice cream actually pairs the iced strawberry green tea granita very well. This iced tea makes us feel like eating real fruits, flavors are strong and genuine. The peach black tea is very refreshing too, and likely to delight your hearts and taste buds on hot summer days.
Ice creams and teas can be enjoyed on site, on the pink deckchairs set in front of the Grand Café. Or you can keep on discovering Paris, and order on the go.
Enjoying the sun on a deckchair, a tasty ice cream in hand, is what happiness is, right? Run to Fauchon La Plage to enjoy this temporary terrace!
