Heather Stimmler-Hall in 4th arrondissement, Sweet Treats

4 Rue de Buci, 6th
Tel 01 43 26 57 46


I know that some people drool on cue when a certain French ice cream maker is mentioned, but I’ve tried them all and Amorino is still my favorite by far. Something about Italian gelato, the way they use a flat spatula to shape the different flavors into petals of a huge flower-on-a-cone, and the flavors! My Italian sucks, so I always have to ask the servers to translate, but I always go for caramel, Nutella, tiramisu, or occasionally a raspberry or lemon sorbet. Mmmm….Best of all, they stay open until midnight at the Vielle du Temple location, and they don’t close for August like Berthillon (d’oh! I said it!)

Other locations: 

82 rue de Montorgueil, 2nd

31 rue Vielle du Temple, 4th

47 rue St-Louis-en Ile, 4th

17 rue Daguerre, 14th

Amorino2.jpgOoh! A new Amorino just opened right across from the Pompidou Centre (4th) and they even have a seating area! It may be February, but I had to go in and test it, of course...try the Nutella and Chocolate mixed together. Yum!
