Best hot chocolate in Paris: the 7th arrondissement

MyFrenchLife™ - Paris hot chocolate - hot chocolateIt’s in the very chic 7th arrondissement that the most important institutions settled down: UNESCO headquarters, the Assemblée Nationale and the Hôtel Matignon to name a few. It is also in the 7th that the most famous Parisian lives: the Tour Eiffel, otherwise known as la Dame de fer.

Last but not least, there are also a number of lovely little hot chocolate places hidden in this neighborhood. Guess what? We hunted them down and we’re going to share them with you!

Bar à Chocolat Christophe Roussel

MyFrenchLife™ - Paris hot chocolate - Christophe Roussel

Visiting the chocolate bar of Christophe Roussel, selected among the five best chocolate makers by the French restaurant guide Gault et Millau, is real bliss for us chocolate lovers.

In the colorful décor, our heart is torn between the original flavored chocolates, the avalanche of flashy macarons… and the hot drinks of course. We couldn’t decide so we went for a macaron and a chocolat chaud. It’s the perfect combo.

Aux Cerises

MyFrenchLife™ - Paris hot chocolate - afternoon tea

With the elegant and careful decoration, the pretty furniture and the comfy chairs, we just feel good in this tearoom.

We feel even better when the hot chocolate arrives at our table. Served with a cloud of whipped cream, the warm drink is as thick as it is delicious! We can’t wait for summer to fling ourselves on the sofas outside.

Les Deux Abeilles

MyFrenchLife™ - Paris hot chocolate - cake

This adorable tearoom, selected among the sweetest Parisian tea salons by Girls Guide to Paris, has everything we can dream of when 4 o’clock comes. There’s beautiful old-fashioned furniture that we could have found at our grandparents’ home, a family atmosphere and a lovely interior terrace, perfect for the warmest days. Also, our taste buds still remember the flavor of their hot chocolate. Delightful!

Les Deux Abeilles

Métro: Tour Eiffel or Pont de l’Alma


MyFrenchLife™ - Paris hot chocolate - Amorino

We still can’t go past Amorino. This chain has branches all over the world – from Paris, to the USA, even in New Caledonia – and there’s a good reason for that! Their ice cream is divine to enjoy on a table out the front in summer, but we keep coming back for the delicious hot chocolate to warm us up in winter.

42 rue Cler, 75007 Paris
Métro: Tour Eiffel or Bir-Hakeim

    Oh I miss this. When we flew from New caledonia to Martinique, we made a stop of one month to Lyon to stay at my parents. New Caledonia and Martinique, lack the finesse of French bakeries. Sometimes I miss this. I loved to stop at a refined tearoom just to enjoy a good dessert after my meal (not everyday of course but one or two times in the month), or during the winter I’d stop at voisin in les galeries lafayettes just to have a cup of coffee along with a good piece of chocolate. Huuuummmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
