The tea rooms of the biggest Parisian hotels
There’s no need to go to London for sandwiches and pastries accompanied by a cup of tea. On the Champs-Elysées, you can discover the joys of Joy du Fouquet’s, overlooking a verdant terrace. Isolated from the hubbub of the street, it offers the ideal setting in which to savour the creations of Nicolas Paciello. A little further on, the Hotel Le Bristol has managed to unite English tradition with French elegance and savoir-faire. Amidst a decor evocative of Marie-Antoinette in which Louis XV furniture adds a resolutely classic design touch, you’ll relish delicacies by Eric Frechon and his chef pâtissier Pascal Hainigue.
Teatime nourishes all kinds of inspiration. Come and discover the creations of Dalloyau, which has taken over the prestigious space under the glass roof of the Samaritaine department store. Amidst the refined decor bathed in natural light, you can taste the absolutely perfect delicacies which have built the reputation of this pâtisserie. Or, for a timeless break, head to the Bauhinia tea room. Its impressive selection of teas and other hot drinks is accompanied by the creations of Maxence Barbot, which provide an exquisite taste experience.
As the afternoon ends, treat yourself to a comforting gourmet break with tea and pâtisseries. The greatest Parisian chefs compete in creativity to offer you their interpretation of teatime.
