L’Artisan des Glaces has Dairy-Free Sorbet and an Iced Cappuccino Made With Ice Cream

If you want to get the best ice cream in all of Walt Disney World, head to EPCOT. At the France Pavilion you’ll find L’Artisan des Glaces. Hand crafted, traditional French style ice cream (glaces) is just the tip of the iceberg. You can indulge in an ice cream brioche sandwich or sip on a martini made of rum and ice cream. On a recent visit with my son I was reminded that there’s also dairy-free sorbet and an iced cappuccino made with a scoop of ice cream. The two of us could not resist either.

My son is at that stage when he either eats nothing at all that I put in front of him, or he inhales it like a super charged vacuum cleaner. In the case of the scoop of Raspberry Sorbet I put in front of him, he inhaled it. It is easy to see why the spot has earned such a high rating.

I went with the Café Glace, an iced cappuccino with one scoop of ice cream, topped with whipped cream. Any ice cream can used in the iced cappuccino. I thought the Caramel fleur de sel would pair nicely, and I was right. This scoop had a rich, dark flavor without being overly sweet. The caramel sauce on top of the whipped cream was sweeter than the ice cream. I gladly sipped every drop, and towards the end I mixed it all up into a shake-like consistency. I was shameless in my devouring of this. For $7.25 it is a great value for being such an indulgent, handcrafted treat.

We visited on a dreary afternoon. All of the tables and chairs that are normally in this area had been removed. We made the most of it by sitting on the ground under the Monsieur Paul awning. We had a lovely view of the surrounding area and I enjoyed our snack break together.
