The hot chocolate here is so good it should feature in the government’s health care plan against depression, because one cup of Angelina’s steaming cup of coco is bound to put a spring in your step, no matter what…

Angelina Paris

This iconic Parisian tea house has been around for approximately 100 years, and it’s nothing short of a pilgrimage site for sweet tooths that lust hungrily over house legends such as the Mont Blanc and the “Africaine” hot chocolate.

There are a multitude of stores to choose from across Paris but the original, located opposite Le Louvre, is a Belle-Epoque beauty designed by the famous architect Edouard-Jean Niermans and is definitely the one you want to check out.

Since everyone wants to get their forks and knives on a slice of these desserts, the place is absolutely packed, especially over the weekends, but don’t let that stop you from trying it out, because one taste of the Mont Blanc and you’ll be queuing up the very next day for another slice of sugary goodness… And you’ll be in good company! the Angelina has attracted the likes of Coco Channel, Audrey Hepburn and other luminaries to its table, so its more than good food…  it’s a little slice of history in your plate.
