The century-old Angelina Tea House is in a beautiful spot on rue de Rivoli. It is right across the Jardin des Tuileries where arcades house some quintessentially French boutiques. For tourists, the location is perfect because it is a short, pleasant stroll from some of Paris’ great destinations. In one direction, it is steps away from the Place de la Concorde which would eventually lead to the Avenue des Champs-Elysees. In the other, a few minutes’ walk would lead to the Arc de Triomphe and then to the Musée du Louvre.
A visit to any of these Paris must-sees should lead you to the Angelina Tearoom at some point. The teahouse has something delightful to offer at any time of the day. However, our favorite would be brunch. For 39,50€, you can enjoy the brunch set which includes both a hot and cold beverage, assorted bread and pastries, a main dish, and a side dish. You can’t go wrong with any of the options but here’s the combination we love:
For the hot beverage, order the Angelina Hot Chocolate. There’s no question about that. That’s the only option you should consider. For the cold beverage, try something different and go for the Healthy Cocktail which is made of fresh orange, carrot, and ginger. The mini viennoiseries and the bread rolls are all lovely, especially with the crème de marrons. Then, have the Eggs Benedict with Avocado and the Caramelized pain perdu style brioche. Bon appetit!
