It is officially the first day of winter! And we want to warm things up by sharing with you where to find the best hot chocolate in Paris.
We are talking about, warm, melty hot chocolate, topped with decadent, homemade crème chantilly.
Although there are many places in Paris to indulge in this warm chocolate delight, the chocolat chaud at Angelina remains a favourite!
They boast several addresses in Paris, but their rue de Rivoli location is their oldest and probably most well known.
Established in 1903, Angelina was founded by Anton Rumpleymayer with his son René. They started as a tea house, on Rue de Rivoli. Their expertise in pastries quickly made Angelina the place to be amongst the elite. People like Proust and Gabrielle Chanel gathered in their famous Art Nouveau tearooms. Today, people from all around the world line up to taste their famous pastries and hot chocolate, L’Africain.
Angelina’s, L’African, received its name from the three strategically selected kinds of African cocoa from Niger, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire. This secret recipe is exclusively put together for Angelina. Their L’African has been a must-taste in Paris for more than 100 years!
Once you order their L’African, you are greeted with their original Angelina porcelain cup and mini pitcher. You then, slowly pour out into your cup, their decadent, smooth hot chocolate.
At the perfect temperature, you top it off with your cloud-like homemade crème chantilly. Then wait for the, “MMMM” moment, with every sip.
