Paris has adopted the English tradition of teatime and turned it into an elegant gourmet experience. The capital’s greatest pâtissiers offer their reinterpretation of this delightful part of the day and invite you to enjoy it in places you might not expect. Your Hotel Danube team reveal their favourites ...
An appealing teatime setting
Part of the pleasure of enjoying some deliciously satisfying tea accompanied by a selection of sweet delicacies comes from the setting. This is even more the case in winter when you’re looking to get away from the season’s chilly weather, because that’s when the welcoming haven of a tearoom is even more a source of comfort and well-being! In this regard, the Café Antonia of the Hotel Le Bristol is absolutely perfect. This elegant location brings together the classics of French furnishing in a symphony of red, green and white that is both warm and exquisitely designed. However, you might prefer the huge glass roof and sleek contemporary design of the Dalloyau à la Samaritaine patisserie, or the timeless atmosphere created under its glass dome by the Bauhinia.
Treat yourself to the joys of teatime
Teatime is a serious business and the pâtissiers devote all their savoir-faire to bringing you delicacies that are each more delicious than the last and all aesthetically pleasing. At Joy du Fouquet’s on the Champs Elysées, Nicolas Paciello offers a gourmet menu comprised of 100% French ingredients. At Bauhinia, Maxence Barbot offers the delights of childhood and accompanies them with a very sophisticated selection of teas. Finally, at the Café Antonia, chefs Pascal Hainigue and Eric Frechon combine their skills and experience to present you with a perfect combination of sandwiches and pâtisseries ...
