The Angelina Story
A long tradition extending over nearly 120 years...
Let's go back to the 1900s, when Paris blossomed both artistically and intellectually at an incredible rate. Writers, painters and politicians congregated in the cafés and restaurants - as well as the tea rooms, which were the latest place to be.
In 1903, the confectioner Anton Rumpelmayer founded Angelina with his son René, a tea house at No.226, Rue de Rivoli, named after his daughter-in-law. The location’s charm and the Rumpelmayer’s skill and expertise with pastries quickly made Angelina the place to be amongst the elite. Proust, Coco Chanel and the biggest French fashion designers gathered in the famous tearoom.
Today, parisians and tourists are queueing to taste the signature Mont-Blanc and the famous hot chocolate "L'Africain".
A centenary know-how
When Anton Rumpelmayer founded Angelina under rue de Rivoli arcades in Paris, he wanted Angelina to become the ultimate gourmet temple and a symbole of the French way of life. Thanks to his pastry know-how combined with his confectionery knowledges Angelina became the favourite meeting place of gourmets who run there to enjoy the emblematic Mont-Blanc, exclusive Angelina pastry creations and the best of the French pâtisserie.
Since 2013, Christophe Appert, Angelina very talented pastry Chef, persue this extraordinary heritage, by refreshing Angelina iconic pastries thanks to his exceptional know-how.
