At the original Angelina location near the Louvre, patrons sit elbow-to-elbow in the Belle Époque dining room, with its sweeping archways, chandeliers, gold accents, and dramatic lighting. Although Angelina is a tea room, it's no secret that their best-known menu item is the chocolat L'Africain, a thick, creamy hot chocolate drink named after the cacao beans that originate in the Ivory Coast. And forget mini-marshmallows: this decadent drink is accompanied by a pot of fresh-whipped cream. Limited lunch and dinner options are available, such as steak tartare and steak frites, and the large pastry counter at the entrance includes macarons and the Mont Blanc, topped with "spaghetti" chestnut puree.
Since it 1903 opening, Angelina has been a popular place to spot famous faces like Marcel Proust, Coco Chanel, King George V, and Catherine Deneuve.
