Angelina

Angelina is a cafe near the Louvre (across from the Tuileries) with very famous hot chocolate. Since I’ve made it my mission to find the best “Chocolat Chaud” in Paris we stopped in a few weeks ago for a quick snack. Moses started French school a few weeks ago so we are able to do some things that are a little easier with just Roman in tow. Conclusion: Very good and very rich. It definitely goes under that category of drinking chocolate (I couldn’t finish mine!) I prefer mine a little bit thinner though I can’t deny it was very good. The rest of the food seemed expensive though. We just got two hot chocolate and croissants and made out like bandits only spending 20 Euros. I think it’s the perfect place to stop by after a morning at the Louvre.

Paris Hot Chocolate Angelina

    I totally agree – definitely drinking chocolate and far too rich for me! But if you’re courageous (and maybe you should wait until winter for this), try the Mont Blanc, the dessert with the crème de marrons topping. http://parisbreakfasts.blogspot.com/2008/04/angelinas-mont-blanc.html It’s to DIE for. Go with a friend, impossible to finish on your lonesome!

    (loving the glasses!)

    My husband and I are moving to Paris in the near future for 3 months for an internship that he has at the OECD and we are excited to see some of the sites. However, we will need to be careful in how we spend our money. We’ve heard that the Louvre is free on Friday’s for those under 26. Do you know of any other good deals or places that we need to visit?
    Thanks

  • Yes, the Mont Blanc is quite memorable! I had to go into sugar detox after the choc chaud + mont blanc though ;)

  • My favorite part is how they automatically bring you a pitcher of water when they bring the hot chocolate. Like “look, trust us, it’s going to be SO thick and rich and chocolately, you’re gonna need this water in between sips.”

    :) i’ve been waiting to see you sport those glasses. cute.

  • Yum! And adorable picture of you!

  • Love Angelina! It is definitely really rich hot chocolate. My husband and I always split one because it is so rich. I love your glasses! Very cute!

  • […] day is a happy day in Paris, especially when a piece of cake at one of my favorite cafes is […]

    you should try la pâtisserie vienoise, rue de l’école de médicine.
    the hot chocolate over there (and everything else!), together with the one from les deux magots in st germain, are my all time favorites.

  • Shucks. Just returned from Paris, and wishing I’d checked in with you before I left. I did enjoy Moulin de la Veirge, Entrecote, and Yard while I was there. Did not want to leave.
    Bon weekend!

    my husband and i enjoyed a sweet little cafe near the louvre called louise’s. the owner was delightful and the food was amazing. my husband most loved the lamb and i loved duck in mashed potatoes (both of which sound much better in french). we ate there several times and everything was reasonably priced (near the louvre!) and delicious. we might just have to try angelina on our next trip though – i have a weak spot for trying food that is famous. :)

    Oh this makes me want to fly to Paris right now. P.s. your shoes are adorable – I have to know, where did you snag ‘em?

  • Kristina says:

    Looks really yummy and your glasses are fabulous!!

    Angelina also has the best “mont blanc” desert in the world…. A mountain of meringue, sweet chestnut puree and whipped cream. Deliscious, and a must-try the next time you go there.

    been there in december last year, loved the hot chocolate, took a bottle home with us. Still haven’t druk it yet. It’s best before date is somewhen in 2012 though. So I’ll keep it for next winter. Got to drink it on a cold day.

    Jordan – The lounge in the Westin (3 Rue de Castiglione) has an amazing hot chocolate beverage. I seriously still dream about it. We spent 3 days in Paris last January and since it was so cold, we finished our evenings with this wonderful treat. We also just got back from our second trip to Paris yesterday and I am so mad at myself for not going back and enjoying one; I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. We just spent very little time in that Tuileries area since we stayed near the Arc de Triomphe this time. Sigh. I guess we’ll just have to go back – again!

    They fill an iced tea type glass with chocolate and put it in a snifter filled with crushed ice and a flavored (cinnamon, lavender, rose…) soda water. The flavor combos are scrumptious!

    I was so excited to find your blog as we are leaving for Paris next week. We’ll only be there for a few days and then we’re on to Spain for the month of July. However, we want to make the most of the few days we are there. Any key suggestions—please visit my blog! We will be traveling with our 3 small children, ages 7, 6, and 4. Can’t wait to see Paris and I look forward to following your blog! Thanks.

  • I have been to that place! Very nice! I to only had the hot chocolate.This was man…maybe 16 years ago! Fond memories..My brothers college roommate took me. Very thick and yes I finished….YUM…not sure if I could now.

  • Very interesting points you have noted, regards for putting up.
