A nice tea shop: excellent selection of teas, cakes and other foods. The owners are very friendly. A bit pricey but worth it, especially on a rainy day.

I was travelling solo and wandering around Paris to get a feel of the place when I came across A L'heure du The. I instantly fell in love with the name and thought the shop itself looked nice and inviting. There was nobody there when I went by but this didn't put me off going in and asking for a... More

I cannot say enough good things about this lovely tea salon! The room is quaint and cozy. The selection of high quality tea is impressive. The owner is adorable and her cakes smell and taste delicious. She even makes a delicious flourless chocolate cake (gluten free) served with homemade raspberry jam and a fresh raspberry.

We stopped in here by chance on the way to the Bibliotheque Sainte-Geneviève for a bit of re-fueling and we had the nicest time talking with the owner, enjoyed a delicious meal that was made fresh on the premises and excellent tea. Also, the pastries were beautiful along with a great selection of french chocolate. We left with a smile... More

This is the best cup of tea that I have found in France. It is just near metro Place Monge and has a huge range of teas. The owner is very friendly, and there is a friendly atmosphere so you can take your time and enjoy a real cup of tea.

Found this by chance and was very pleased. Lovely choice of teas, must be over 100 of them. All cakes homemade and wonderfully tasty and some quite unusual. Very small and boho but lovely and relaxed. £20 for one pot of tea, two cakes and an oj. You have to ring the bell at the shop front to gain access,... More

We were walking in the Latin Quarter and discovered this absolutely charming tea room and stopped for tea and pastry. All the pastries are homemade and were fantastic. I had the lemon tart and it was excellent. They had a wide assortment of teas to choose from and each person can get the tea they like. The place is charming... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
