SO exciting!! Epcot’s France has been undergoing a culinary transformation this year with the opening of Monsieur Paul Restaurant and Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles. And now the final puzzle piece is in place!
L’Artisan des Glaces Sorbet and Ice Cream Shop is now open to the public!
I love the classic exterior — with a new window!
This space, formerly occupied by the old Boulangerie Patisserie, is a perfect location for the new sweet stop. And featuring sixteen icy, delicious flavors (and an extra surprise I’ll mention in a moment), I know it’s going to be an instant hit — especially during the Orlando Summer! Let’s head in and check it out…
The bright, airy shop features pastel colors and old-world structural touches. I also like the milk jug themeing around the shop!
Cones are classic waffle style.
L’Artisan des Glaces Flavors
As you know, guests have the choice of ordering their ice cream or sorbet in one- or two-scoop sizes, in either a cone or a cup. Current flavors (these will change from time to time) are:
Vanilla, Chocolate, Profiterole, Caramel fleur de sel, Mint Chocolate, Cherry, Pistachio, Coco-White Chocolate, Hazelnut, Coffee
Strawberry, Lemon, Mango, Pomegranate, Melon, Mixed Berries
And here’s what they look like!! Gorgeous, eh?
Expert cast members know just how to make dreams come true!
Reader Ben H. stopped in and sent over some awesome photos and this review of the process at L’Artisan des Glaces!
It works much like a Food and Wine booth. You walk up to a register and order how many scoops you want, and if you want alcohol or not. Then you bring your receipt to the pick-up stand, where you choose between a cup and a cone, and also what flavor ice cream or sorbet.
I had the mint chocolate (pictured below) and it was fantastic. The shop is small, but very quaint; very rustic. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful, and the waffle cone was great, too. Though it’s tucked back, on a hot day like today, it certainly hits the spot! It’s worth finding!
Indulge With an Ice Cream Martini!
And there’s another fun option — for those who’d like to indulge just a bit more! You can order your ice cream or sorbet with an alcohol topper! We’ll have a full review of this tomorrow, but here’s a little taste…
These are served in a martini glass, and come with your choice of three select liqueurs: Grand Marnier, Clement Rhum from Martinique, and Whipped Cream flavored Epic Vodka!
Pretty gorgeous, right? Like I said — full review and more photos tomorrow!
Here’s the price point for the new shop! Note that the one scoop cone/cup can be purchased for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
