Glaces Glazed Ice Cream Shop in Paris




Glaces Glazed Ice Cream Shop in Paris

Paris is known for its classical ice cream shops, as well as a few Italian-style gelaterias, but until a few years ago, there weren’t any young people forging out on their own, churning up more contemporary flavors of ice cream and sorbet for modern palates. Don’t get me wrong, I love glace au chocolat and glace au caramel beurre salé, but I’m no fuddy-duddy, and happy lap up what the next generation of glaciers are doing in Paris, such as Henri Guittet at Glaces Glazed.

Henri started off as a delivery-only service for his ice creams, which were available by subscription, then expanded to a camion when les food trucks started rolling around the city. (He has a vintage HY Citroën truck that I keep thinking would be fun to ride around with him in, scooping ice cream across Paris together.) But now he has a full-fledged shop on the lively rue de Martyrs, a street that’s become a destination for food-lovers, with pastry shops, waffle makers, and chocolatiers lining both sides of this historic street, that lead up to Montmartre.
