    It's hard not to love Angelina. The location and the hot chocolate is to die for. It's a must visit for anyone who likes chocolate!

    Although we had to wait 1 hour to get a table, (at any time when you visit Angelina you will have to wait in line, wether for breakfast, or afternoon tea, or late dinner) the wait was worth it after sipping the signature hot-chocolate and devouring yummy dessert. For your information, Coco Chanel visited frequently Angelina's and had her hot-chocolate in that 'Epoque' decorated tea salon. Definitely a must-try and if you like you can take a bottle of hot chocolate with you for 10 euros.

    Possibly the best hot chocolate in the world. It's made even better if you have a friend with you to share a whole pitcher!

    Yes, it's expensive and you'll have to queue. But the hot chocolate (Chocolat L'Africain) is everything you've read about: so thick and yummy they even bring you a glass of water in case you choke or get a sweetness overdose.
    Trust me: order one and share, as it is impossible to finish it alone. And if you want to save some extra euros, you can grab some desserts and hot chocolate to go.

    Their L'African hot chocolate is just that: molten chocolate. It's the best I've had in all of my travels. They serve it with unsweetened whipped cream, which you'll appreciate once you realize how sweet pure chocolate can be.

    Completely overrun with tourists but the hot chocolate here is so good that it makes it worth it. A must-see for a first time visitor.

    it's all tourists all the time at this busy mecca for amazing hot chocolate and sweets. a perfect reward for the kids after a long walk through the nearby louvre. make sure you're seated downstairs which is prettier and livelier than the small upstairs.

    This restaurant is widely considered the best hot chocolate in Paris. What I really loved about it though was the old world elegance. The little shop up front with rows of perfect macaroons and the gorgeous decor of the restaurant in the back is everything you could hope and expect from a beautiful Parisian cafe. And the hot chocolate gets its reputation for a reason, its so thick you can stand your spoon in it. Be sure to find someone to share it with, as it is a rich and decadent as you hope it will be!

    Omg, what a delicious place! I was recommend to come here and was not disappointed. This place is located south of the Louvre, approximately 10min walk. If you're passing by souvenir stores and other restaurants, you're going the right way. On the left of you should be the big park.

    Okay, let's talk about the food. This place is known for their hot chocolate and their Mont Blanc. If you tried Butler's hot chocolate in Ireland, it's very similar to it. The drink is basically made with cream instead of milk. If you're sharing for two, I would recommend ordering one since its so rich and more later on if you crave more coco. As for the Mont Blanc, it's a pastry in a shape of a muffin or cupcake, but it's not at all like it. The outside is covered with a string texture of coco. It doesn't exactly taste like chocolate, but light sugar instead. The inside is filled with cream (whipped texture) and the bottom is based with hard white chocolate. I wishes I got to eat more of this, but I was already overwhelmed with sugar from the hot chocolate. Mont Blanc was approx €8.

    As for the entree, I ordered from their lunch menu. I missed breakfast since it ends at 11:30am. I ordered their crawfish and squid ink risotto, so AMAZING! One of the best dishes I had for awhile and of course, the best I had in Paris so far. The risotto literally exploded in my mouth with all the right flavor, a perfect balance of taste. The crawfish was so tender, luv luv luv! This dish was €29, but well worth it.

    The restaurant is quite big and the wait wasn't long at all. Our waitress spoke English, so it wasn't too bad. The service was standard. As long as you're polite, the waitress is nice but I can see them getting annoyed with the language barrier and the wait for our orders. Lucky thing was the menu included English description.

    Hope this helps!

    I didn't dine at the restaurant, but instead grabbed a sandwich and some pastries to go, so my review is based on the food alone. The sandwich was a typical Parisian baguettte sandwich, nothing special. However, I really loved their macarons. They are also famous for their Mont-Blanc pastry, a chestnut puff with cream inside. It was delicious and very unique.

    This traditional salon de thé was founded at the turn of the 20th century and was made famous by both it's clientele (Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel) and it's rich African hot chocolate.

    On a visit to Paris this was an obvious choice for me as my sister shares it's name. I was not disappointed when stopping in for pastries (not the famed hot chocolate).

    From what I could see the queue to get in can get quite lengthy at times, being so close to the Louvre. Though we arrived at a rather advantageous moment only waiting 15 mins. The wait was well worth the Mont Blanc.

    Went to the snack instead of sit down restaurant. Luckily we caught the last sandwich. Food is typical French fair with nothing too spectacular.

    Went for brunch to splurge on a cold wintry morning.
    Hot chocolate: okay, thick, chocolately, but just okay.
    Pastries: small, dry, expensive
    Juice: fine,..not the best, not the worst

    Basically you're paying for the experience and the brand (which seems to have expanded everywhere in Paris). Nowhere near as good as Cafe Pouchkine located inside the Printemps department store (now THAT is amazing!) so all in all, glad I had the experience well enough to stay with Pouchkine...

    Expensive but exquisite pastries. We had to have the Mont Blanc, of course, and it was well worth the 8 euros. There are two locations, one at the Louvre and one at Versailles close to Marie Antoinette's village.

    Always a must stop for petit dejeuner. Glamorous, chic, and the hot chocolate is out of this world. Be fancy.

    The best hot chocolate in Paris. An institution. The venue is a bit lackluster but perhaps that adds a bit of charm?

    226, Rue de Rivoli. It is a beautiful place with belle-époque décor. The hot chocolate is fantastic; sip and sit back and feel euphoric. It is a fun place to overhear conversations. It is pricey, but who cares; I am not a chocoholic but what does price matter when it is that good. The coffee is also very, very good. I really liked this place and it continues to marvel me.
