Whether you are staying in the 1st arrondissement, or you’ve just taken the kids for a run on the carousel in the Tuileries, Angelina is perhaps Paris’ most famous patisserie for a sweet pick-me-up. On the weekends there are often queues down the block for a seat inside, so skip to the takeaway line and bag yourself one of their namesake Angelina financiers to go instead.
If you aren’t visiting on the weekend, the tea room is also a well-trodden work meeting point for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon coffee. This is one of those institutions that Parisians and tourists frequent alike.
Housing the Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Place Vendôme, Palais-Royal and perhaps Paris’ most famous style strip rue Saint-Honoré, the 1st arrondissement is situated principally on the Right Bank of the Seine. As one of Paris’ oldest areas it also showcases some of its most spectacular public buildings, hotels, restaurants and gardens.
