One of the most beautiful tea rooms in Paris, the elegant Café Jacquemart-André is situated in the former dining room of the mansion built by banker Edouard André between 1869 and 1875.
The palatial boulevard Haussmann residence was home to Monsieur André and his wife, artist Nélie Jacquemart, with whom he assembled the impressive art collection displayed through out its many rooms.
The tea room features 18th-century tapestries and a painted ceiling that is part of a series of Tiepolo frescoes originating from Villa Contarini in Mira (Italy).
Accessible independently of the museum (though the latter is definitely worth a visit), the tea room offers a selection of pastries from some of Paris’s top best pastry shops as well as light lunch fare.
During the summer months, the café opens onto a terrace overlooking the courtyard.
