Angelina Tearoom in Paris, France

July 22, 2011 by

Much more than a plain patisserie or tearoom, Angelina is a luxury brand with an exalted image that symbolizes the “French Way of Life”.

The Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer created this place, called Angelina, named after his daughter-in-law, in 1903. The Angelina tearoom, for over one hundred years, has asserted itself as a soaring point of Parisian gourmet pleasures. Angelina became a do-not-miss location for the Parisian aristocracy over the years. There, Proust, Coco Chanel and the utmost French fashion designers were found.

Although it is known as a tea salon, it does serve breakfast, lunch, and dessert, so is therefore more like a cafe. Their African hot chocolate served on a silver tray with cream separate, is what has made this place so famous over the years, and patrons will be hard pushed to get a hot chocolate anywhere near as good in another place.

The décor, designed by the celebrated Belle Epoque architect, Edouard-Jean Niermans, combines grace, magnetism and sophistication. Angelina is an authentic romantic poem, a gentle and voluptuous venue, settled between tranquillity and gourmet pleasure.
