Best hot chocolate spots in the 9th arrondissement
Walking in the 9th arrondissement can be a little hectic – especially during Christmas or the sales period.
But we never get tired of the splendor of the Opera, the architecture of the Grands Boulevards and having a look at the windows of the Galeries Lafayette.
With the constant bustle in this neighborhood, we sometimes love to sit and relax around a hot chocolate. Something tells us that you’d love to know where, so suivez le guide!
Aux Pipalottes Gourmandes
This restaurant/caterer/delicatessen is a feast for the eyes and mouth. Pastries, pasta, cakes, sweets, and numerous bottles of vinegar and oil seem to almost touch the ceiling. It’s the perfect setting in which to treat yourself to a delicious cup of hot chocolate. Lovely!Aux Pipalottes Gourmandes

Métro: Poissonnière or Cadet
Angelina Galeries Lafayette
This is another alternative to the main Angelina for when we’re not in the 1st arrondissement, or when we’re just too lazy to get our feet to rue de Rivoli. Do we need to mention that they serve a fantastic hot chocolate?Angelina Galeries Lafayette

Métro: Chaussée d’Antin-La-Fayette, Auber or Havre-Caumartin
Rose Bakery is the ideal mix of healthy food, mouthwatering cakes and friendly British atmosphere. In short, it’s the perfect spot to hang around with friends. We especially like to come when we’re craving something sweet, and pair a moist slice of cake with a warm hot chocolate. Oh, and they also have some delicious gluten-free treats to accompany your drink!

Métro: Anvers, Pigalle, Notre-Dame de Lorette or Saint-Georges
A little Italian wind blows down avenue de Trudaine in Paris. The reason? Le Corso: this Italian chain of bistrots where they serve savory, sunny meals.
However, our hearts melt for their succulent and thick hot chocolate. Miam!Corso
10 avenue de Trudaine, 75 009 Paris
What we love about Le Brebant is the mix between the industrial decoration and elements from the traditional brasserie parisienne. But what we enjoy the most is looking down on the terrace, and watching the coming and going of the waiters while dipping our lips into a creamy hot chocolate.Le Brebant
