First Look! L’Artisan des Glaces Sorbet and Ice Cream Shop in Epcot’s France is Open! See Full Menu and Photos Here!

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!

L'Artisan des Glaces is open in Epcot's France!

Completed Epcot France Pavilion!

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!

A scoop of the good stuff

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!

Stay tuned for the full review 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.

    Looking forward to this in Dec since I’ll be staying in Disney for 11 nts. Hoping w/the Disney dining plan we have that this could be considered a snack. (esp that I’m Gluten Free). :))
    My son leaves for Disney tomorrow w/his g.friend. Will be there a wk. I will let him know since he has the Dining plan to stop by and try out this new place. :))

    Since there isn’t a peanut butter option I will be getting the coffee and hazelnut!

    I had the coco-white chocolate ice cream in a cone today, and it was amazing. It was by far the best scoop of ice cream I’ve ever had from a restaurant/shop. The uber creamy texture of the white chocolate ice cream was interrupted by little bits of coconut. My wife loved her profiterole cone, but I can’t speak to that, becaise neither of us shared a bite with the other. :)

  4. Debbie says

    I think I’d go with pistachio and hazelnut. Can’t wait to try it when I’m there in December!

  5. Laura says

    I had the caramel in a waffle cone today! By far, the best ice cream I have ever had. the texture was perfect-it was creamy & smooth! The 1 scoop was a decent size! The caramel flavor was excellent-a little salty but not too overpowering! Will be heading back to try new flavors :)

    I had a scoop of hazelnut last week. Rich, creamy and flavorful. I noticed they now offer macaron ice cream sandwiches too. They looked good.
