Paris’s best juice and cold drinks

Putting the ‘fresh’ back in ‘refreshment’

© Time Out
Ever since the Starbucks Frappucino introduced caffeine to a whole generation of erstwhile coffee sceptics, there has existed a vocal group of consumers who'll only drink their java iced. And ever since Californian new-agers decided that smoothies are an essential component of a spiritually balanced life, cafés have had to cater to those who'll only take their fruit blended. Needless to say, we approve of these trends – so much so that we've sniffed out the best iced coffee, the freshest juices and smoothies, and even the finest bubble teas that Parisian establishments have to offer. You're welcome.

Paris's best…

Coffee

The Paris coffee scene is coming alive: Time Out sips its way across town in pursuit of the finest roasts, blends and brews While Paris excels when it comes to café culture, from sitting out on the terrace of the historic Café de Flore to popping in to your favourite local bar for a classic grand crème and a croissant, until now that culture has not extended to the quality of the coffee itself. The French themselves do not even seem to care that their coffee is unanimously condemned as lousy, happily sipping an espresso made with bitter pre-ground beans, not bothering that the barman uses pasteurised long-life milk for the cappuccino. All that is changing fast though, with a new generation of coffee bars opening up all over the city, many run by Australian and American baristas who take their espresso-making skills very seriously, alongside French coffee enthusiasts who are travelling the world to visit plantations, then importing and roasting the fragrant Arabica beans themselves. These born-again cafés serve potent double espressos made with freshly ground beans from Ethiopia or Rwanda, Salvador or Guatemala. They are introducing the French to the subtleties of strong-tasting V60 filter coffee, flat white or the siphon Aeropress. Many are also gaining a reputation for their healthy food, from natural yoghurts at breakfast to grilled vegetables, crispy salads and organic grilled chicken at lunch, though don't count the calories too much when it comes to the chocolate cakes a

Ice cream

Our sticky-fingered guide to the best ices in the capital takes you from glorious gelati in luxurious ice cream parlours to sweet shops full of bonbons; simply the best places in Paris to indulge a sweet tooth. La Maison du Chocolat Most people associate La Maison du Chocolat with luxurious boxes of chocolates; but come here in summer and you’ll discover (in addition to the chocolate stands) a superb ice cream section with endless tubs of mouth-watering glaces and sorbets. Chocolate ice cream takes pride of place – there’s even a low-fat chocolate sorbet for calorie counters. But non-chocoholics have plenty of choice too, with expertly prepared flavours like salted caramel, coffee, strawberry cream and that timeless classic, vanilla. A la mère de famille If traditional ice cream cones just aren’t enough any more, head along Rue du Faubourg Montmartre to A la Mère de Famille. As well as traditional scoops, this 250-year old sweet shop (filled with bonbons, jellies and chocolates) serves scrumptious homemade ‘Exquimaux’ (frozen ice cream lollypops, coated in chocolate, caramelised almonds, biscuits or crushed hazelnuts) and delicious rochers glacés (small chocolate logs filled with peach, caramel or chocolate marshmallow flavoured ice cream). Another indulgent speciality is the sachets of ‘Palets de Montmartre’ – chocolate discs filled with nougat, caramel or lemon ganache. Pozzetto Pozetto might not be the most famous gelateria in Paris, but it’s one of the best, servi

Street food

Street food: a simple concept, almost as old as streets themselves, which is now taking off in Paris despite a slow start. Prepared and/or sold on the city's pavements (to the extent permitted by the law), and designed to be easily eaten on the fly, this not-so-haute cuisine runs the gamut from sandwiches to kebabs, empañadas to dim sum, without ever breaking the bank. Read on for our recommendations. | Sandwiches | | Light bites | | Burgers | | Kebabs | | Pizzas | | Food trucks | See also : Best burgers in Paris The best ice cream in Paris Vegetarian restaurants in Paris Italian restaurants in Paris
