Maison Angelina is a Parisian institution. Created in 1903, Maison Angelina historical store is set at 226 rue de Rivoli in Paris. For over a century, this tearoom and delicatessen treats gourmet people, Parisians and tourists.
For the summer 2018, Maison Angelina releases a range of gourmet and very generous ice creams. We went to the very chic address in rue de Rivoli to taste these wonderful sweet treats.
On the menu, 5 summer scoops more tantalizing than the other. The Coupe Rivoli (meringue, chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, hot Angelina chocolate, whipped cream, €13), the Coupe Rumpelmayer (caramelized hazelnuts, Piedmont hazelnut ice cream, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, €14), the Coupe Fraisier (fresh strawberries, strawberry sorbet, vanilla ice cream, red berries coulis, whipped cream, €14).
Our (hard) choice went for the Coupe Mont-Blanc (€14) with crispy meringues, a Mont-Blanc ice cream, a delicious vanilla ice cream, sprinkled with candied chestnuts and topped with a light and sweetened whipped cream.
And then, we go for the Coupe Mademoiselle (€14), very feminine, with fresh raspberries, meringues, its raspberry sorbet, its vanilla ice cream and even with this Angelina whipped cream.
The tasting is a true delight. We accompany the whole with an old-fashioned hot chocolate (€8.2) as famous as the house itself, and a delicate traditional apricot nectar (€6.9), by Angelina.
115 years after its opening, Maison Angelina hasn’t lost its splendor.
