Excellent Gelato in Paris 5th District

Published: 13.10.2014 by Kyrre Dahl in category: France

A Petit Cornet at Amorino was just what I needed today. Their gelato was just excellent, albeit not cheap. I found the place in Place de la Contrescarpe in Paris 5th District.

Paris is divided in neighbourhoods, which goes by the name of a number. Today I checked out 5th District or 5. arrondisement, which is on the south side of Notre Dame. I was walking down Rue Mouffettard when I saw this place, promising italian-style gelato.

The price for the smallest cup or waffle is 3,60 euros. Not exactly cheap, but not too bad by parisian standards. You can choose more then one flavours, I am not sure how many, my french is not that good, but I chose Amarena and a vanilla-type called Madagascar.

The taste was excellent and it even looks good! On a monday in off season the place seemed quite, but I saw several other people buying ice cream as well. There are no seats at all, so only takeaway, but you can stand and eat in the nice square, Place de la Contrescarpe.

A plus for the amarena berry at the top, on the negative side the amount of ice cream was on the small side, but again very tasty.
