Angelina

Teahouse in Louvre & Les Halles

Clink china with lunching ladies, their posturing poodles and half the students from Tokyo University at Angelina, a grande-dame tearoom dating from 1903. Decadent pastries are served here, but it's the super-thick ‘African’ hot chocolate (€8.20), which comes with a pot of whipped cream and a carafe of water, that prompts the constant queue for a table.
