Angelina is home to Paris's most lip-smackingly scrumptious desserts - all served in the faded grandeur of a belle époque salon just steps from the Louvre. The hot chocolate is pure decadence; try the speciality 'African', a velvety potion so thick that you need a spoon to consume it. Epicurean delights include the Mont Blanc dessert, a ball of meringue covered in whipped cream and sweet chestnut, and, for those with a waistline to watch, a brand new sugar- and butter-free brioche aux fruits rouges. The place heaves at weekends, so be prepared to queue.

Exceptional place. A tip is not o get hot chocolate AND a Mont Blanc. Too much. Just too much! Service was re excellent, the place is beautiful. It's not cheap but,,,
The hot chocolate wasn't as amazing as I expected and the Mont Blanc was too sweet. I'm a lover of all things sweet but the combination of the two was too intense I couldn't even finish either one of them. I left the place feeling like a part of my brain was comatized. The interior is nice but not as nice as it looks in the photo. The seating area is a bit too crowded and the service was blasé. Next time, I'd rather get something to go rather than wait in line.
SOOOOOOO overrated! over priced and less than gracious staff - as one who adores Paris and spends time here NOT a recommendation!!!
