We wanted to find a place for a pretty quick breakfast before heading to the Louvre so we looked on tripadvisor, saw it had decent reviews, and were on our way. We arrived and were promptly sat by a sweet hostess. Our waiter arrived a few minutes later and got us water and coffee. I asked for cream for my... More

Visited with my children after they begged to go to Paris after getting their passports for Christmas. Stopped by cafe Angelina and it was obvious they do not like Americans, especially Americans with children. Sat us in the back corner, server did everything she could to make us wait and then proclaimed she didn't speak english. Finally able to place... More

THE HOT CHOCOLATE. It's delicious and the only thing you will ever need from there. Maybe a croissant too or other pastry.

If you like chocolate and cake you will be in heaven. It is a little pricey but well worth a visit for afternoon tea to sample the delicious offerings. The waiters and waitresses are refreshingly friendly and attentive.

My daughter had written a very comprehensive itinerary for our visit to Paris and Angelina's was a must. We arrived for afternoon tea to find a rather large queue at the door. Not daunted we waited and it moved reasonably quickly, whilst waiting in the queue go and have a look at the cakes available so you've made your mind... More

Wow. Very nice decoration, packed, great service, beautiful and tasty desserts what can you ask more! The hot chocolate is amazing too and the reviews are right. I think as a cafe, it a must visit only if they add music

It's "vacance" again for French school children. They have 2 weeks off every 7 weeks of school. My husband and I are native Kansas Citians living in the Paris suburbs now. Since we teach English and art we had some time off to explore a little more of Parisien life. A trip to Angelina's was very worth that trip. The... More

If there's one thing you have to do in Paris its visit Angelina for brunch or lunch, even just for afternoon tea but do not miss out on this gem! We had booked in advance as there was a big group of us for Saturday morning brunch and it was definitely worth it. The Angelina breakfast is a must, a... More

While visiting the Louvre we decided to stop for lunch. The Angelina Cafe was nearby and it seemed to be nice. This was a mistake. The service was terrible, staff didnt seem to care at all. Our order was delivered wrong (as it was at adjoining tables too). The food was cold and just microwaved. My chestnut soup had a... More
