In my ignorance I didn't know about Angelina's being so famous for its hot chocolate. If that is all you want to experience, you can go in the bakery area amongst the beautiful pastries and get one to go. But if you want the whole experience take the time to dine. We had brunch - my companion got some dessert and hot chocolate, I had eggs Benedict - a great choice - they were served with smoked salmon upon request (I don't eat meat, just fish) and the holliandaise sauce was to die for and served on the side so I could regulate - great idea. The hot chocolate was interesting. I didn't expect it to be so thick - so be prepared. It is so rich though that this chocoholic couldn't even finish it all which is very uncharacteristic of me!! The service was very slow - so don't go when in a hurry and there can be a line as this is a Paris institution. We waited about 10 minutes for a table (third in line), but about 20 minutes to get an order placed. This may not always be the case, not sure. When we left, the line to get in was about 20 people. The dining rooms are well appointed the pastries are beautiful and delicious. If hot chocolate is all you want to experience, just do the to go - look at the dining room and pastries while waiting and be on your way.

Stopped here for breakfast, the breakfast was good (not amazing) but the hot chocolate was amazing and totally deserves a visit just for this.

Thank Claire H

I saw a special on TV where they said Angelina's was the place to visit for the best hot chocolate...i thought that was novel and am no ways a hot chocolate expert, but the experience would be good. Saw some mixed reviews about service and expense. Its Paris and its expensive but hard to complain about a $6 cup of hot chocolate when I just dropped $95 on a 30 min taxi ride. I would certainly go, plan on being there a while to just take everything in...they will not rush you and i went mid afternoon and it was full, but not overly crowded. I will say my plan was to go for breakfast and then visit the Louvre which is not a bad idea, just plan your Louvre hours (when you book your tickets you get a entry time to beat the line) but my entry to the museum conflicted. Regardless, you should go and plan also to try their ice cream. They sell that outside and inside.

We visited both the cafe at the Palace of Versailles and the location on the edge of the Luxembourg gardens on our trip. Both locations were lovely and clean and the food at both was equally delicious. The macarons were perfectly airy and light. The hot chocolate was intense and creamy and the citron tarte was to die for.
