Definitely need to make a reservation in advance to avoid a LONG wait. The hot chocolate is seriously to die for and it’s just such a wonderful place.

Very classy and delicious. Famous for their hot chocolate and pastries/desserts. Great spot for breakfast/brunch. Across from gardens near Louvre.

We called and made a reservation were seated and they spoke English, Italian and French.

A bite pricey but amazing food and cute pastries.
Very nice service even with the order mix up.

Famous french pastry salon. The hot chocolate is great but a bit overhyped. Be careful with the club sandwich as it can easily feed a family of four.

Taking hot chocolate and fancy deserts to the next level! I had iced hot chocolate with this hazel nut Pastry called New York Paris. Other goodies were white chocolate drinks. Fun place
Located right near the louvre museum .

Anjelina's famous hot chocolate and blance mange were just ok. We had much better at Patisserie Viennoise

A must. Just down the street a few blocks; try a Sunday morning or Monday early afternoon to beat the crowds.

Calling all chocolate lovers!!! Depending on the season, get either the hot chocolate or the cold hot chocolate. It's rich, decadent and everything that a chocolate drink should be. Pairs well with coffee.

The line to be seated at Angelina's was incredibly long, but thankfully, we were only after their famous hot chocolate and they had a convenient hot chocolate stand right outside their shop. There was even a small line for that, but it was worth it. My fiance, who has a serious sweet tooth, couldn't stop gushing about it. We were thankful we each ordered a cup, instead of sharing like we usually do (we were on a foodie crawl and I'm not that into sweets). The cup is sort of small, but it's very thick and rich! It's like drinking melted chocolate said my fiance. It was probably the best hot chocolate I've ever had. It costs almost 5 euro, but it's 8.50 in the restaurant. There is also a small gourmet shop that sells macarons and other sweet treats. Having something to dip in our hot chocolate would have been nice. There should be a hot churro stand right next to it! They'd make a killing! :)

If you want a place of sophistication, elegance and the chocolatiest of hot chocolates, then Angelina’s tearoom is the place to be. It certainly was the place to be among the Parisian aristocracy when it was first founded. Tempting enough?

Go for the hot chocolate and pastries, stay for the beauty of this tea room. Bring a friend to share (the chocolate is served for two) and though the wait is long, the locale itself is reminscent of a bygone era in Parisian history, and you'll spend your time there feeling like you're sitting in the lap of luxury.

It's always great to come across a tearoom that doesn't just feel like one of another boring old chain. Founded in 1903, Angelina is a gorgeous historical tearoom serving delicious, refined delights. Formerly a teatime spot for aristocrats, Angelina is more accessible today though it still has very grand airs about it. The décor is ornate, all pastel colours and golden stylings, very much in the Belle Epoque style (by Edouard-Jean Niermans). It's fair to say that Angelina delivers one of the thickest, most luxurious hot chocolates in Paris; named 'l'Africain' it is made from a blend of cocoa beans from Nigeria, Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Although Angelina tends to get busy, it is a Parisian institution that is well worth stopping into. Don't worry if you don't make it to the Rue de Rivoli; there are Angelinas all across the city.

I love this place. You can taste their hot chocolate while touring the louvre museum

Paris may be famous for its café culture, but its coffee isn't all that exceptional. Luckily, its hot chocolate is! This café near the Louvre is particularly famous for its African hot chocolate. Don't be scared off by the lines -- they move very quickly. As you wait, take a look at the pastry case and choose what you'll taste to go with the rich chocolate. The creamy chestnut Mont Blanc is the house specialty, but the fruit tarts and cherry millefeuille tend to pair better with the chocolate and cut its nearly cloying sweetness and richness.

Skip breakfast—hell, skip lunch—and save every calorie for the decadently thick, not-too-sweet hot chocolate at this ornate 1903 teahouse, an erstwhile haunt of Coco Chanel.

It's hard not to love Angelina. The location and the hot chocolate is to die for. It's a must visit for anyone who likes chocolate!

Although we had to wait 1 hour to get a table, (at any time when you visit Angelina you will have to wait in line, wether for breakfast, or afternoon tea, or late dinner) the wait was worth it after sipping the signature hot-chocolate and devouring yummy dessert. For your information, Coco Chanel visited frequently Angelina's and had her hot-chocolate in that 'Epoque' decorated tea salon. Definitely a must-try and if you like you can take a bottle of hot chocolate with you for 10 euros.

Possibly the best hot chocolate in the world. It's made even better if you have a friend with you to share a whole pitcher!

Yes, it's expensive and you'll have to queue. But the hot chocolate (Chocolat L'Africain) is everything you've read about: so thick and yummy they even bring you a glass of water in case you choke or get a sweetness overdose.
Trust me: order one and share, as it is impossible to finish it alone. And if you want to save some extra euros, you can grab some desserts and hot chocolate to go.

Their L'African hot chocolate is just that: molten chocolate. It's the best I've had in all of my travels. They serve it with unsweetened whipped cream, which you'll appreciate once you realize how sweet pure chocolate can be.
