New Angelina tea room at Musée du Luxembourg

The legendary tea room Angelina is set to open another tea room in Paris at the Musée du Luxembourg (6th arr.).

Housed in a brand new building designed by architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, the combined tea room, café and restaurant will offer museum visitors light lunches, desserts and its famous hot chocolate in an elegant Belle Epoque décor reminiscent of the original location on rue de Rivoli.

Founded in 1903 by the Austrian Antoine Rumpelmeyer, Angelina has been a Parisian institution for more than a century.

In addition to its flagship location on rue de Rivoli, the company also has tea rooms at the Palais des Congrès (17th arr.) and Musée du Louvre (1st arr.)

The new tea room will host a series of dinners followed by debates on a selection of cultural and art topics.

    1. Hello,
      The opening of the tea room has been postponed to April 2012. It will not be necessary to purchase a museum admission in order to access the tea room, whose entrance overlooks the front courtyard.

  1. ANGELINA has such a good reputation and this time I was disappointed at ANGELINA musée du Luxembourg. The surroundings are very nice, the food is very nice and the prices are not exorbitant but I would suggest that the staff should have been trained in the US where we always feel very welcome.American staff are not afraid to say : “Good morning, how are you today ?” But here in Paris those two nice girls are too discret. I am afraid but yesterday (january 5th/2013) we had to wait to be seating before the “serveuse” managed to say “Bonjour”. It does not make you feel very welcome. And a big smile would make such a difference. And it was not busy at all as it was after 2.00 pm.
