A must for ice cream
Why locals love it
Housed in an historical tea room on Boulevard de Reuilly, Raimo is a traditional ice cream parlour that has been pleasing local gourmands since 1947. These days it’s also a restaurant and bustling bar. On Thursdays you can enjoy their happy hour specials, while on Sundays you can savour their tasty brunch.
Why you should visit it
Their ice cream is simply amazing. They offer a wide variety of flavours, many of which are fairly unusual, for example almond milk, tomato and basil, basil and lemon, and candied chestnut. I was impressed when I tasted their chocolate sorbet – it’s very light as it’s not made with milk or cream, though it’s still full of flavour.
They also have two other locations in Paris – a shop in Montmartre at Le Moulin de la Galette and a cart in Jardin des Plantes de Paris.
