The Angelina Cafe of Versailles !!!

You are aware of the Angelina 226 ,rue de Rivoli, Paris and even maybe the one inside the palace of Versailles, but did you know there is another one way back in the gardens by the Petit Trianon ? This was our walks while living in Versailles, and playground with the boys and of course, stop for a nice coffee early in the morning here or lunch , I have briefly mentioned in other posts but feel deserves a post of its own in my blog, A new post/text using older pictures. Therefore, here is my take on the Angélina Café of Versailles !!!

The one most are familiar with is in the Cour des Princes, pavillon d’Orléans, Chateau de Versailles. However go country and visit the coffee shop at the Maison du Suisses in the Petit Trianon side building inside domain properties. Refine , a must for pastries and hot chocolates for me! Our break from walks and jogging in the gardens by the Petit Trianon!


This is our Angelina by the Allée des 2 Trianon by the Petit Trianon. As said above, this was our hangout when jogging/ walking in the domaine property at the time of me living there; enormous, awesome, grandiose magnifique to have a light meal while looking at the Palace gardens , the back view and the Petit Trianon next to you!!  Angelina installs during the beautiful days a beautiful terrace under the trees, in front of the Petit Trianon; you can have wonderful ice creams here. .You get your oders inside the house , then you brings your trays outside. There is a very nice outdoor terrace of 100 seats and heated in Winter; great for a coffee or hot tea indeed glorious!.


A bit of history I like tell us that it was in 1903 that the Austrian confectioner Antoine Rumpelmeyer founded Angelina, thus baptized in honor of his daughter-in-law. For more than a century, the tea room located opposite the Tuileries Gardens in Paris has established itself as a Mecca for Parisian gourmet pleasures. As soon as it opened, Angelina became the unmissable meeting place for the Parisian aristocracy. Proust, Coco Chanel and the greatest French fashion designers have met in its salons… Now find the whole atmosphere of this century-old house as part of your visit to the Domaine de Versailles. A unique place to savor the famous hot chocolate and the indescribable Mont-Blanc whose century-old secrets remain well guarded. They are now in several places inside and outside France.
