My husband treated me to a hot chocolate at Angelina's for my 50th birthday...it was sublime.  I'm not sure if it was the just the whole experience or if the chocolate was truly magical.  We spent 2 weeks in Paris and we saw plenty of people in white trainers that were not American or ugly tourist Simone.

I' get to Angelina's in Paris about 3 times a year and can never resist their famous Afrikan Hot Chocholate.  It's amazing.

Even the whipped cream alone can make you swoon with childish delight.

For me, it's too much to have one with a Mont Blanc cake, so I usually get the cake from the take away counter in the front and enjoy the next day,.

 

The place itself is so, so beautiful from it's sweeping belle epoque architecture to all the mismatched old tables.  Too bad this lovely picture is ruined by the woman in the "I'm an ugly tourist" outfit with her disgusting white gym sneakers.  Hey lady, you ruined this lovely picture.- buy yourself comfortable shoes. There are plenty to be had.
