Founded in 1903 by Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer (1832-1914), Angelina has been a Parisian institution for more than a century.

Located beneath the arcades of the busy rue de Rivoli, across from the Tuileries gardens, this tearoom is most famous for its African Hot Chocolate, a thick, luscious concoction that has been compared to a melted chocolate bar.

A single order of this sweet and calorie-laden luxury chocolate drink is often enough for two people — something to keep in mind if you also plan to order from the large selection of pastries and cakes on offer.

These include its famous Mont Blanc, a meringue base topped with chestnut purée and whipped cream.

Elegant service in a gorgeous Belle Epoque décor, designed by architect Edouard-Jean Niermans (1859-1928), make Angelina a very popular destination among tourists and locals alike. Sundays are especially busy, and there’s often a line-up at the door.

Marcel Proust and Coco Chanel were regulars here.

Update: Angelina recently launched its own line of gourmet chocolates, available exclusively at the rue de Rivoli location.

  1. Please inform me on buying cups and saucers, I never asked when I was there thanks

  2. If you live in certain countries you can order Angelina’s to be delivered there through:

    The problem is that the United States is not one of those countries. I have an email in to them right now as I desperately want to order some for my wife’s birthday. If they say its possible I will post a follow up here.

    1. Thank you for doing this work. Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus in America do not have any Angelina to sell right now. I am bereft! I certainly hope I can order from someone.

  3. Need to replenish my Angelina’s cocoa. Getting near the bottom and I don’t know where I can get some in the states. Help.
    Dark chocolate lover. Thick chocolate drink lover.
