Looking to beat the bizarre October heat?!  With temperatures topping 30 degrees Celsius this weekend, nothing beats a cold ice cream.

Indeed legend has it that the Roman emperor Nero (A.D. 37-68) ordered ice to be brought from the mountains and combined with fruit toppings. However it wasn’t until the second half of the 21 first century – when cheap refrigeration became common – that the ice cream business really began to heat up.

Here, Haute Living lets you in on the top ice cream scoops, shops and stands in the capital. Read on for the full low-down.
