Flore en L'Isle : Paris, France

Continuing on our sentimental kick, the fiance and I visited an ice cream shop we visited on our first trip: Flore en L'isle across the bridge from the Notre Dame.

Like last time, there was a small line of about 20 people or so.

And like our last time, I spat out some mangled French accent to order.  (The photo below shows some of the flavors available there.  The guy managed to shift his head right when I was taking my pictures)

No pictures (that we'd like to share), but we sprung for two cones, each with two flavors:

Pistachio - Decent, but the real pistachio flavor did not come through sufficiently.
Melon - Liked this much more than the pistachio, tasting like a refreshing cantaloupe
Hazelnut - Strangely, unlike the pistachio, this was pretty loyal to the hazelnut flavor.
Rose Framboise - I'm not sure if I actually got to taste this one.  :P

We mainly went here for sentimental kicks and having seen others with ice-cream cones around other areas, I suspect there may be other ice-cream shops around the area, potentially with better ice-cream. But if you do find yourself around these parts and at this shop, you probably will not do so bad there.
