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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

A wonderful place for leisurely breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea. Ok, it is always a good time to grab a nice piece of pastry and hot chocolate. If haven't got time for sit down meal, they offer take away option out front but eating in the classically decorated dining area is highly recommended.

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.
