With its cornucopia of frosted swirls, sugar colors, and perfect towers of delicacies Ladurée was established in 1862. There are now several chains throughout Paris, the rest of France, and beyond, but the original shop is situated on Rue Royale.

4- LE BOULANGER DES INVALIDES-JOCTEUR

5- LE LOIR DANS LA THÉIERE

Le Loir dans la Théière

Tel :+33 01 42 72 90 61

Trust the Marais to come up with a tea-room just that little bit over-the-top. Translating to The Dormouse in the Teapot, this café seems to have taken inspiration from Alice in Wonderland in more than just the name. With a mishmash of chairs, imaginative wall décor, and waiters hopping from place to place, this is somewhere for your senses to be overwhelmed.

6- SALON DE THÉ DE LA GRANDE MOSQUÉE DE PARIS

Address: 39 Rue Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire, Paris, Île-de-France, 75005, France
MonSun: 9:00 am – 12:00 am
Tel : +33143313820

This tea room must be seen to be believed. Inside the walls of Paris’ great mosque is a secluded, shady courtyard. Although there is a constant bustle, an overwhelming sense of calm pervades here. Perhaps because many customers have just visited the mosque’s hammam, or perhaps because of the hookahs, there is something undeniably special about the atmosphere here.
