Cafe Angelina established in 1903
226 Rue de Rivoli, Paris
African Hot Chocolate, Mont Blanc and Raspberry Macaron
It's no secret, Paris is, well, amazing.... On a trip in December 2010 I stopped in at Cafe Angelina, once frequented by Coco Chanel, located on Rue De Rivoli opposite the Tuileries Garden.
Their signature Hot Chocolate is simply delicious, more like silky Chocolate syrup or sauce, this rich and decadent drink is different to any hot chocolate I've experienced. Their equally famous Mont Blanc (as seen above) was enjoyable and the raspberry macron was, without doubt, the first time I'd ever REALLY eaten a Macron, a true Macron, everything else has just been a coloured almond meal biscuit!.
We also visited Laduree in Madeline, a Flea Market (Marche aux Puces) just off Rue de Temple, Marais and the stylish apartment of an Actor and Writer couple near Notre Dame. Will post this and other Paris adventures soon. Paris is a vintage shoppers paradise!.
