Paris was lovely this summer, apart from the fact it was 35 degrees Celsius. We ducked into cafes at every chance we had, to cool off and to replenish energy levels.
Once such accidental find was the delicious Angelina cafe. The menu read like something from a fairytale and prices were ridiculously affordable. We settled on salmon and veal, with four deserts afterwards. Yum! Two we had in the cafe and two we took out for a nice walk by the Seine where we sat and watched the lovers go by.
Angelina cafe was established in 1903 and was a favourite with Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel. Located in the arcades of the Rue de Rivoli in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, next to the Louvre (and our hotel) it is always full, with queues outside the door. They were more than happy for me to take photos, after all why wouldn’t they be proud of marble and gilded iron work?
If you ever go to Paris make sure you go to Angelina and remember that you don’t have to stop at just one dessert.
