The Angelina Tea House in Paris that has been there for over a century. Many are not aware that it was actually founded by a confectioner from Austria. Antoine Rumpelmeyer and his family emigrated from Austro-Hungarian Empire to the south of France, in the 1800’s. Inspired by the teahouses of their roots, the Rumpelmeyer family opened various ventures in Monte Carlo, Nice, and Antibes. They had a successful run, so they decided to open a tearoom in Paris in 1903 and called it Angelina Tea House. It still stands in the same location they opened.

It was designed by architect Edouard-Jean Niermans, He was famous for his impressive works in Paris which include the Trianon-Concert in Montmartre, la brasserie Mollard on rue Saint-Lazare and the Moulin Rouge on Boulevard de Clichy. He had signature style called Belle Epoque. Many were pleased with his French aristocracy. The high society of the time helped propel the success of the Angelina. Even today the original interior is the same it was when created.

The Bertrand Restauration group took over teh Angelina brand in 2005. However, the new management has done a good job to keep it the same. Today you can still enjoy the same teas, hot chocolate and deserts at this location. They also offer sell branded Angelina tea cups, pots and kitchen accessories. If you know someone named Angelina these would make excellent gifts.

Article submitted by Cécile Zarokian

No trip to Paris would be complete without exploring the Louvre Museum. While the hours spent exploring and admiring the world’s greatest art could be awe-inspiring, it could also leave you exhausted and famished. What you’d need is a scrumptious meal from Angelina.

While you can enjoy equally delicious fare at their The Café Richelieu-Angelina outlet inside the Louvre, the nearby Angelina Tearoom might be able to offer a far superior experience. The tearoom is a pleasant, 8-minute stroll down Rue de Rivoli and the destination would prove to be worth the extra distance.

The Angelina Tea House has mouthwatering offerings for every course. For a post-Louvre meal, you’d love their club sandwiches that come with either matchstick potatoes or perfectly-cooked lettuce hearts. The Scandinave Club Sandwich is a popular choice. It contains smoked salmon, hard-boiled egg, and fresh goat cheese. If you prefer chicken, go for the Angelina Club Sandwich instead. That contains chicken fillet, smoked bacon, hard-boiled egg, and tomato.

Once you’ve satisfied your hunger, it’s time for dessert which, in this case, would actually prove to be the most important course. Dessert is what the Angelina Tearoom is best known for and it’s easy to understand why. The pleasure from tasting their signature Mont-Blanc pastry is indescribable. Add to that a serving of their legendary African Hot Chocolate which could easily become the highlight of your entire Paris visit. There’s definitely a reason why both locals and tourists have been flocking to the Angelina Tearoom for over a century.
