Pozzetto – finally, fabulous coffee & gelato in Paris


Photo Erica Berman

Despite my recent tirade and blog post ranting about the poor quality of coffee in France, I am pleased to announce that I recently had a fabulous cup of coffee in Paris. It was a coffee surprisingly worthy of any I have had in Italy, right in the heart of the Marais! Last Saturday after being jostled about in the Merci boutique (had to check it out – and found it overrated, overpriced, and overcrowded even if for a good cause, but lovely!) my friend Francoise and I made our way to the Marais and ended up at Pozzetto gelateria on rue du Roi de Sicile.

Francoise ordered a chocolat chaud con panna, (hot chocolate with whipped cream) so thick she had to eat it with a spoon, and I ordered a marocchino con panna (basically a small cappuccino with warm chocolate sauce and homemade whipped cream).  Next time I will have to try an expresso or plain cappuccino to see how they hold up, but I am not sure I will be able to resist the lure of the perfect marocchino! The homemade gelato is also wonderful, the staff are all Italian and friendly, and I can’t wait to return. There is a 2nd Pozzetto on rue des Levis in the 17th, I may just have to walk on over from my flat in Montmartre . . .  tomorrow?

    I was just there a few days ago and had stracciatella and mint (and it had the taste of fresh mint), amazing!

    Thanks for your wonderful blog. I am going to Paris for my honeymoon and I am just looking forward to follow your tips, especially this Pozzetto place, which had been already reccomended to me by a girlfriend of mine, a real gelatoholic.
