The ultimate experience of having Angelina’s famous hot chocolate is like sipping a hot chocolate while walking through the Tuileries Garden on a brisk day at any time of the day. You can now go to the renowned Angelina that is directly across from the Tuileries on rue de Rivoli. You can either wait in a line to have that hot chocolate or make a reservation for your spot in the teahouse.
The fact that hot chocolate at Angelina’s is one of the best in Paris is not surprising because the family that established the restaurant has roots in Eastern Europe where thick, sumptuous hot chocolate is a staple.
In 1903, the Rumpelmeyers opened the now-famous Parisian landmark Angelina. The hot chocolate is le chocolat chaud à l’ancienne l’Africain which is the old-fashioned hot chocolate called “The African”. It is served in a cup and saucer along with a pitcher of steamy, hot chocolate so thick and creamy. Fresh whipped cream is served on the side.
Angelina Tea House is undoubtedly the best place to get that perfect and delicious cup of hot chocolate. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy it during your next visit to Paris.
