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.
