Angelina, one the most famous Parisian tea salons
Founded in 1903 by Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer and named in honor of his daughter-in-law, the Angelina tea room facing the Tuileries Garden has been the favorite meeting place of Parisian gourmets for over a century. Since its opening, Angelina has been a timeless rendez-vous point of Parisian aristocracy.
Many visitors such as Proust, Coco Chanel, as well as some of France’s greatest designers have passed through these tea room doors.
It is a unique setting in which one can enjoy their world-famous hot chocolate called ” l’Africain ” and their signature ” Mont-Blanc ” pastry which has been a closely guarded secret for over a hundred years.
