Remembrance of Things Past

Here I am at the Café Angelina, a favorite haunt of my youth. My sister and I had a nostalgic chocolate as we reminisced about being young in the most beautiful city in the world. Angelina is a well known “salon de the” or tea room, though they specialize in irresistible hot chocolates. With it’s old-fashioned marble tables, large 19th century oil paintings and oversize mirrors, Café Angelina acted as a time machine, taking Chantal and I back to the Paris of the 60s and 70s.  They also serve the best macaroons, though we both abstained, something we would never have done in our rose-tinted teens.

  1. Hi Catherine & Mitchell,
    I am feeling much better now and only 2 weeks post-surgery!! Anyway……….Cafe Angelina is my all-time favorite stop in Paris. I discovered it by recommendation in 1997 during my very first trip to Paris with my mom. I always recommend it to anyone visiting Paris. I simply adore the hot chocolate, the atmosphere, and of course the “Mont Blanc” signature pastry.
