Chocolate Cafés in Paris

Chocolate cafés

La Maison du Chocolate - one of the best chocolate salons in Paris, France

There is a wealth of wonderful chocolate shops and chocolate cafes in Paris – here is a small taste :-)  As I visit more, I’ll write about them here and share my findings with you. If you visit any places you’d like to share, please do! Simply scroll to the bottom of this page and fill in the little form.

Hot Chocolate – Chez Angelina

This wonderfully grand Viennese cafe was founded by Antoine Rumpelmayer in 1903, a former favourite with Proust, Coco Chanel and George V.  If you love your hot chocolate, and would dream of it being served with cream on a silver tray, then you must try Angelina’s. Taste the tempting pastries, or buy something gorgeous to take home and enjoy later – you’ll be glad you visited one of my favourite places!

Chez Angelina : 226 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris

La Charlotte de l'Isle - cafe & chocolate in ParisLa Charlotte de l’Isle

Another of my favourite places for hot chocolate is La Charlotte de l’Isle, a wonderfully cluttered, eclectic charming little cafe on the Île St.-Louis

Cacao et Chocolate

Cacao et Chocolat is a delightful shop on Ile St Louis, which sells chocolates worldwide from their website in English.  When you see the amazing chocolate fountain in the window, you’ll know you’ve found the right place.  Allow plenty of time to browse and taste!

Chocolate on Water  |  Route du Cacao | Chocolat-sur-Seine!

Walk down memory lane:  There used to be a wonderful Chocolate barge, run by Pascal Guerreau [a former racing car driver obsessed by chocolate].

You used to be able to find the barge moored on the Seine, by the Bibliotheque Nationale and next to the nightclub barge for Batofar. Whilst whiling away some delicious tourist-free time on the chocolate barge, you could wander around the little chocolate museum, visit the lovely tropical hothouse (with its own cocoa tree!) and pop into the chocolate boutique.

Chez Angelina - hot chocolate in Paris, France

You could see your very own hot chocolate (from a choice of five on the menu) being made in the chocolate laboratory before you head upstairs to the tearoom. Far from the madding crowds and overpopulated tourist areas, you’d be sure to be delighted. Prices were reasonable, and if you wanted to stay onboard, you could even order a light savoury lunch.

There were 50 different chocolate ice creams and 20 varieties of cake. It used to be open Wed-Sun 10am-8pm

Old location:  La Route du Cacao  |  Quai de la Gare, 75013 Paris |  Opposite the Bibliothèque Nationale de France
Tel: +33 (0) 1 53 82 10 35
