The British Tea Time tradition has spread across the Channel in style. You can experience this period of blissful indulgence and conviviality filling the gap between lunch and dinner in several Parisian establishments. A few steps from the Louvre and Place Vendôme, the Hotel Daunou Opéra is a haven of sophistication in the heart of the City of Light. Here are 3 Tea Times close to our 3-star establishment to enjoy during your next stay.
In 1903, the Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer established a tearoom in the capital which he named Angelina Paris in honour of his daughter-in-law. Almost 120 years later, it’s one of the most fashionable dining establishments in Paris. And for good reason! Here, amidst a Belle Époque decor designed by Édouard-Jean Niermans, you can savour pâtissier delicacies and delicious hot drinks. The Angelina specialities are its Mont-Blanc dessert and L'Africain, one of the best hot chocolates in town.
The first Café Pouchkine was founded in 1999 in Russia by Andrey Dellos. From this restaurant, which is ranked among the 100 best in the world, the Franco-Russian entrepreneur and artist has built an empire that you can bite into at 16, Place de la Madeleine, in a setting created by the finest Moscow artisans. Amidst the opulent splendour of this imperial setting, you can relish matriochkas, bostocks or yoghurt macarons specially created for the opening of the café.
The Bar Baudelaire with its Michelin star is the gourmet benchmark of the Hotel Le Burgundy, offering exquisite recipes prepared to perfection for the total pleasure of the senses. The chocolate marble cake with caramelised peanuts is a standout among the tempting sweet and savoury selections from which you can choose. To accompany this treat, there’s hot chocolate, tea, or even champagne!
