The best, traditional hot chocolate can be found at Café de Flore on St. Germain des Près. Café Angelina is also fantastic, but Café de Flore’s “Chocolat Special” struck me as what you think of when you think of real hot chocolate, whereas Angelina’s White Hot Chocolate is less traditional.
It was exactly what my friends and I needed on this cold but sunny day, after strolling around the small St. Germain Christmas Market. We also got an impromptu look at St. Germain Church and St. Sulpice. Charming December day.
