Read on below for our picks for the best hot chocolate in Paris’ 16th and 17th arrondissements!
This hot chocolate has nothing to be ashamed of, and everything to be proud of. As creamy and smooth as can be, the hot chocolate at Carette is the perfect reward after a stroll around the Place du Trocadéro.Address: Carette, 4 Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, 75016 Paris
If you don’t have the time (or courage) to queue at Angelina rue de Rivoli, you can still pop into their branch in the 17th to enjoy a hot chocolate. Of course, the place is not as impressive as the main tearoom, but the result is the same, right?Address: Angelina Maillot, 2 Place de la Porte Maillot, 75017 Paris
Métro: Porte Maillot
Above all, this girly tearoom attracts visitors with their delicious flashy-colored cupcakes. But don’t forget to taste their hot chocolate! Served in a bowl, the homemade drink will take you back to childhood.Address: Beauty Cakes, 83 rue Nollet, 75017 Paris
La Pâtisserie des Rêves
Created by Philippe Conticini, a world renowned pastry chef, La Patisserie des Rêves will thrill the sweet tooth. As for the hot chocolate, we couldn’t decide between the praline flavored or the caramel. They’re both delicious. And no, you’re not dreaming.Address: La Patisserie des Rêves, 19 rue Poncelet, 75017 Paris
