hot chocolate

In Paris, you can order this beverage in ververy café all year long but if you are looking for a gem, here are our Top 3 :

The most famous : Angelina

A classic. From Parisian to tourists, everybody knows the place @Rue de Rivoli. If you are note afraid of the crowd, it is a must try. And if you happen to be around the Luxembourg Gardens, have a seat in their tearoom, the famous hot chocolate "L'Américain" and the pastry "Mont-Blanc" are exactly the same than the ones on rue de Rivoli. And you may be less frustrated since the corner is less known and less packed.

Le Loir dans la Theière : A hot chocolate in an "Alice in wonderland" atmosphere

In the eclectic neighborhood of The Marais, this café is inspired by the fantasy novel "Alice in Wonderland". You will enjoy a warm and cosy experience if hyou don't mind being greeted without a smile (you are in Paris after all, and waiters have a reputation ;) ). Order a hot chocolate and you will have a pot serving 2 cups. And if you are craving for a French homemade pastry, go to the buffet and pick you favourite treat. You can try pretty much everything but if you want our tip, try the impressive and delicious "tarte au citron meringuée" (the lemon pie), an institution.
