Le Café Richelieu / Angelina Richelieu wing


Located in the Richelieu wing, a short walk from Napoleon III's apartments, the Café Richelieu offers gourmet treats courtesy of Paris institution Angelina. With terraces overlooking the Cour Napoléon and the Pyramid, the Café Richelieu offers a chance to discover an inventive, gourmet menu in a magnificent setting.

In 1903 the Austrian confectioner Anton Rumpelmayer founded Angelina, named after his daughter-in-law. For more than a century, the tearoom on Rue de Rivoli has become a Parisian gourmet institution, frequented by Proust, Coco Chanel and many other great French fashion designers.

The Café Richelieu, previously the office of the French Minister of Finance (from Napoleon III to 1984), offers the same menu as Angelina. Try their famous "L'Africain" hot chocolate, or the ineffable Mont-Blanc.

The menu offers sandwiches, salads, seasonal dishes and a selection of Angelina's pastries: Mont-Blanc, macaroons, Saori, 'Eva' tartlets, crisp vanilla eclairs, pistachio religieuses (puff pastry buns filled with pistachio cream), etc.
