The Best Hot Chocolate in Paris (plus their famous Mont Blanc) – Angelina| Paris Travel Guide

Alright, so I don’t know how to tell you that I have just spent €9 on Hot Chocolate but I have. £3 for a coffee back home is more than enough so why triple the amount for a small hot chocolate?

Side note: I wrote part of this before I headed to Paris and ended up getting a Mont Blanc without the chocolate chaud but I had the hot chocolate last time so it still counts, right?

The Hot Chocolate l’African is produced from three different kinds of cocoa from Niger, Ghana and the Ivory Coast – thus rightfully earning its title of the best hot chocolate in Paris and you cannot convince me otherwise.

When I was in Paris a few years ago, I tried this and honestly I’m now craving it again. I’ve never tried any food Angelina before so I thought this time round I would give their Mont Blanc a shot – another must have which tourists and locals rave about.

If you love hazelnuts with a creamy, chocolate-y texture, don’t miss this – although I will tell you now that having both would be slightly filling so that’s why I didn’t end up getting the hot chocolate as I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy it.

The Mont Blanc was something I spent years thinking about (I’m so sad I know) and it was worth the wait. But would I get it again? No. I love their Hot Chocolate too much and would choose that over anything on their menu – yes it’s that good.

Their best seller treat is definitely worth having if you love meringue, lightly whipped cream, and well…chestnuts!

Surprisingly, it wasn’t half as rich as I thought it would be which was actually nice as it was a really hot day in Paris and I’d rather not walk around feeling full.

Having been to the café on the Rue du Rivoli, I wanted to try the one located in the Luxembourg Gardens which I really loved. Very small but such a lovely little place.

Angelina was established back in 1903 and many many famous faces walked through the door such as Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn – and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me!
