Afternoon tea in Paris is the perfect pause from sight seeing in the city of lights. What better way to give your weary feet a little break than by sipping tea in some of the prettiest surroundings imaginable. From high-end hotels to classic tea emporiums, here is our guide to the best afternoon teas in Paris.



This pretty in pink tea room is the epitome of femininity. The interior is heavily decorated in pastel pink and gold with a beautiful chandelier and plush arm chairs. There is a wide selection of tea flavours on offer but their signature one is the Marie-Antoinette made from apples and roses picked directly from the King‘s Kitchen Garden of Versailles which goes very nicely with a slice of their apple cake.

Laduree Champs Elysees-14


The tea room for ladies who lunch or in this case, ladies who take tea. Order a plate of candy-coloured macarons and pastel hued pastries to create a tailor made tea party that every girl dreams of. Choose amongst flavours such as almond, rose or Darjeeling or the popular Marie Antoinette flavour, a gentle melange of rose petals, citrus fruit and honey which is delicately perfumed, light and refreshing. The beautifully wrapped boxes of loose leaf tea and muslin tea bags also make for a unique and special souvenir of your trip.

Le Meurice

Le Meurice puts on a spread as good as any afternoon tea you’ll find in London. Here you’ll find a British-inspired affair including finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of petit fours. Dine in the beautifully ornate Dalí restaurant which offers stunning surroundings for an afternoon tea experience. €48 per person.

Hôtel Plaza Athénée

An afternoon tea setting that consists solely of sweet eats? Yes please! The afternoon tea at Hôtel Plaza Athénée is in true Parisian fashion – straight to good stuff with 3 full tiers of sweet treats. There are no scones or sandwiches, just a delicious plating of all the sugary goodness you could ever consumer in one sitting.

Hotel Bristol

Afternoon tea at the Hotel Bristol is a very civilized affair. Three tiered plates arrive delicately placed with miniature club sandwiches and traditional French pastries, featuring many creations by the pastry chef of the year. You can take tea inside the ornate tea lounge, or alternatively in the beautiful courtyard garden. €80 for two people. (Photo via Hotel Bristol)

Hotel Costes

Hotel Costes

Hotel Costes is famously known by Parisians as the purveyor of the most beautiful roses in Paris. But behind the infamous florist lies the hotel with its acclaimed restaurant, bar and courtyard. Almost perpetually full of chic Parisians, it has become the place to sip and be seen. Nothing really beats taking tea in the plant covered courtyard with its grandiose statues and salmon hued walls reminiscent of an Italian piazza.

    We love afternoon tea at the Georges V (Four Seasons). Try their hot chocolate on a cold afternoon, it’s divine!

    I had the loveliest service at Hotel Costes. A friend and I talked and talked for hours, and they never rushed us to leave. Classy.
    Similar to Ladurée is Angelina, on rue de Rivoli. Gorgeous. Go upstairs!

    This makes me want to go to Paris right now. I live in Abu Dhabi and have’t been back to Europe for over a year now. I do know that I’ll be trying to find clotted cream 😉
