Christian Constant Ice Cream Patisserie Photo Barbra Austin

Christian Constant

 

Not to be confused with the identically-named with several restaurants on rue Sainte Dominique, this Christian Constant is a chocolatier and full-service traiteur. In warm months, this is a good shop for ice cream; the glaces here are freshly made, with no stabilizers or additives.

Reviews of interest 

Time Out (2012) “His ganaches are subtly flavoured with verbena, jasmine or cardamom. Utterly kitsch but wholly romantic is the hat-box filled with roses and chocolate truffles lightly dusted in cacao powder. Constant’s marshmallows are also a perfect balance of tang and squishiness.”

Caroline Mignot (2009) “Un choix de parfums particulièrement rafraîchissants, sorbet cassis, framboise, fraise, mangue ou fruits de la passion, même s’il manquait hier le fameux au cacao ou autres glaces au chocolat. 6 € les deux boules, accompagnées des tuiles de Monsieur Constant, tout était généreux, un bonheur simple et frais.”
