I Scream, You Scream…

We all scream for ice cream — especially with summer and tourist season just around the corner here in Nice.

Berthillon” is to Paris as “Fenocchio” is to Nice

Here’s the scoop!

Berthillon is a well-known tea salon, located on the Ile Saint Louis,  offering 60 flavors of ice cream/sorbet.  In the summer, there are long lines at this famous establishment.

Fenocchio, located in the heart of Old Nice at Place Rosetti, is a well-known and offers around 98 flavors of ice cream/sorbet  (one of my top five sites in Nice).  Long lines are common during high tourist season.

    Pralines and cream is my favourite.

  2. I once tried tomato and basil, out of sheer curiosity, which was really odd tasting. Can be fun to experiment…well, sometimes 🙂

  3. AH! Now I’m craving ice cream. I just checked out Berthillon’s website. Good golly. I’d pick the Chocolat au nougat! Foie gras?! Interesting! T.

    Oooh… I’d have to try Vanilla & Pink Pepper. And Thyme sorbet. (It is the south of France, apres tout!)

  5. Oui, c’est vrai. It would be fun to taste a spoonful of each flavor!
