When it’s hot out, I want nothing more than an ice cold drink or treat. After a picnic in the Jardin de Reuilly with the very talented Hallie, we went on a walk and found ourselves in front of the famous ice cream shop Raimo. I’d heard nothing but good things about it, plus they had sorbet, so we stopped in for dessert. I ordered the mango, and Hallie had the melon. The hype is true; they were SO good. It’s no wonder they’ve been around since 1947!
We visited their location in the 12e arrondissement, but they also have boutiques in the Marais (17, rue des Archives, 75004) and in Saint Germain (65, boulevard Saint-Germain 75005). During the summer, their unique Happy Hour is on Thursday from 6 – 10 p.m. at the Daumesnil shop. The Raimo piña cocktail (rum with coconut sorbet) sounds delicious! À jeudi…
