Article by — Helene, Paris elopement planner, exploring tourist experiences for the past 12 years

Disclaimer: As wedding planners at Do it Paris Way, we are regularly asked for recommendations for restaurants in Paris. The recommendations we make are based solely on our personal experiences and opinions. We do not receive any commissions or benefits from any restaurants we recommend, and we do not work with or have any business relationship with the restaurant being recommended. If you choose to visit this restaurant, please understand that you would need to book your reservation independently, as we do not assist with restaurant reservations or bookings.

This is our recommendation for a visit somewhere during your trip. This place won’t be a good fit for a wedding celebration but is worth visiting after the Louvre museum. 

If you're looking for some old-world Parisian charm, you'll find it at Angelina Café in Paris. This historic spot has been serving locals and tourists alike for over a century, and it's not hard to see why.


A line to get inside


A heaven!

The main salon. Don’t accept to sit upstairs, the atmosphere at the main salon is always better


Every decoration detail is a masterpiece

A visit to Angelina's wouldn't be complete without trying their famous hot chocolate, which is made with a blend of three different kinds of cocoa and is so thick and creamy, you'll need a spoon to enjoy it! The hot chocolate costs around €8 but it's definitely worth the price for the rich, indulgent taste.

Angelina's has quite an extensive tea menu, with prices ranging from around €7.50 to €10.50 for a pot of tea. They also have a variety of other items on their menu, such as croissants, macarons, and cheesecake, which range in price from around €3 to €10.50.


Onion soup is a must try


And we also recommend their perfect teatime set with sweet pastries and savoury sandwiches


Tim had a salad, which was also very very good


Love their branded places and cups, so cute

The café is open seven days a week from 8 am to 7:00 pm, so it's the perfect spot for an early morning coffee or a late afternoon hot chocolate. Though the café is incredibly popular and can get quite busy, it's definitely worth the wait.
