Irrespective of whether you are a dessert person or not, a visit to Le Bac à Glaces on Rue du Bac will certainly instill in you a reverence for Parisian icy treats. A giant ice cream cone beckons you inside to this old-fashioned and cozy cafe, running since 1982, where you are instantly taken by the assortments of sorbets and desserts. The handwritten specials and new-arrivals add further to the innocent charm of this little parlor which almost passes for a tea room if not for the signs. You could order your choice of ice cream either sundae style, in a crepe or atop a crispy cone, however you like it. The au naturale sorbets come in more than 50 flavors, from classics like Creole (rum & raisins), fruity (Mirabelle, Blueberry), exotic (Chocolate Passion) to the unusual (Apricot with Ginger Confit and Green Ice Tea). So for a respite from a hot summer afternoon in the city duck into this parlor or take a tub home with you.
