It is one of the temples of gluttony and these windows are always tempting with its pieces mounted with meringues, its pastel-colored tea boxes, everything is so soft and powdery!
History of Angelina Paris
The history of Maison Angelina dates from the beginning of the 20th century. At that time, the Austrian confectioner Anton Rumpelmayer arrived in the South of France where he opened several “Rumpelmayer” stores and acquired great notoriety. Driven by success, Rumpelmayer sets out to conquer the French capital.
In 1903, he founded with his son René, at 226 rue de Rivoli, an « Angelina » tea room in honor of his daughter-in-law, so named. From the moment it opened, Angelina became a must-see for the Parisian aristocracy. In its salons, Proust, Coco Chanel and the greatest French fashion designers have come together … who jostle there to come and taste the famous Mont-Blanc and the unforgettable hot chocolate called « L’Africain« .
