Sorbet Without Vegan Labels

Located right next to the harbor, this was a great place for me to get an ice cream before leaving La Rochelle.

Unfortunataly, the vegan options were not labeled as vegan, and when I asked what was vegan the staff were initially confused and unsure. After a while they realised sorbet is vegan and told me all the sorbets were vegan, which, according to comments on HappyCow, is inaccurate. I asked if the waffle was vegan and he knew that it wasn't.

I had the raspberry and the orange (5€). It tasted alright, like any kind of sorbet.

After such high ratings on HappyCow my expectations were perhaps a bit too high.

Cons: No vegan labels

really good vegan sorbets

This ice cream shop has a lot of tasty vegan options.
Just be careful: The only vegan ice creams are the sorbets, except for the 2 chocolate flavors.
There is a sign on the wall, where all the flavors are listed, so pick and choose from the sorbet list (except chocolate) :)
Also, the waffle is not vegan, so take a plastic cup.

The personnel is really nice.
When we asked which flavors are without milk, the girl behind the register offered us (without us asking) to wash the spoons.

Just the best ice cream you will ever get

Ernest is a La Rochelle's institution. No visit to the city is complete without a stop at this ice cream parlor.
There are two locations on the vieux port (second one is Rue du Port).
A lot of flavours, it will be hard or you to choose one!
Pricey but worth it (3 euros one flavour, 4 for 2).

Pros: Homemade, Delicious, Creative

Cons: Vegan options not cleary marked

be careful, but it's worth it :)

BE CAREFUL ! No waffle cornetto if you're vegan ! Better prefer the plastic recipient ;)

Prices are a bit high (3€/1 ball in plastic recipient ; add 20 cents for the cornetto)... But the quality is there ! Ingredients are fresh, and it's no [censored] ice cream or sorbet from your supermarket. Give a try : I usually don't like ice cream at all. This time I loved !
