No matter what time of year, a visit to Paris warrants a taste of ice cream from one of the city’s renowned glaciers.
Raimo Glacier claims its place as the oldest artisan ice-cream maker in Paris. Created by the Raimondo family in 1947, the establishment recently sold its name to a group of investors who have continued with traditions and injected new talent to expand the products beyond just a café and salon de thé.
Located in the 12eme arrondissement near Bois de Vincennes, Raimo produces some of the best ice creams and sorbets in France with over 35 parfums or flavours to choose from. Think nougat, pistache, salted caramel and marron glacé, and if you’re into fruity sorbets, the flavours change with the season and can include cassis, citron-basilic and mango.
Go for the dégustation and order palette de couleurs Raimo, 8 miniboules of ice cream and sorbets of your choice , or choose from the Vacherins glacés or mini macarons glacés.
At Raimo, you can eat inside in the retro chic décor, sit outdoors on the trottoir or go for the ‘à emporter’ option and take your choice of ice cream home.
