PARIS - Hot Chocolate "Africaine" at Cafe Angelina

For a most memorable hot chocolate in Paris, head to Cafe Angelina and order the "Chocolate Africaine" or the "Mont Blanc" Oh la lah! delicioux! - The cafe is located just a bit west of The Louvre and next to the Hotel Meurice, on the Rue Rivoli. It makes a nice refuge after walking the Tuileries Gardens or from the winter cold .

Angelinas can be crowded and it closes early - around 5pm or 7pm - not sure, so get there early, or you will find a line at the door. Once inside, enjoy the lovely frescoed ceilings, the gilded mirrors and the linen covered tables, while being served by waiters in long aprons - very Belle Epoque!

On your way out, grab some jams and pastries for your friends back at home and if you're hungry for more than just some hot chocolate, the cafe also serves nice salads, quiches and sandwiches. Either way, you can't go wrong.

Bon Voyage!
