The first thing that was making me super excited about Paris Fashion Week last March was the Cartier Press Event, and the second thing was the Afternoon tea at The Peninsula Paris.

Oh yes, here on The Viennese Girl blog, we die for little glitter and glamour, why should we hide it anyway? And Paris has a lot of them to offer, that’s why we also go, why should we hide it anyway? And all those things together always remind me the reason why I started this blog: to escape the routine, get access to dreamy places, and do things I’ve never done before.

It was raining cats and dogs the moment we stepped in at The Peninsula for our afternoon tea. Perfect timing to be somewhere indoors. Polina and I hunkered down in the armchair and indulged in delicious finger sandwiches and pastries. While sipping tea and savouring scones served with cream and jams, we took those photos. At the same time, we tried to be as discreet as possible not to disturb other people in Le Lobby, although it was quite difficult to hide our enthusiasm. The luxurious setting at Le Lobby, impeccable service, live music of the chamber orchestra, delicious pastries and two glasses of champagne, everything made a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Paris. If you happent to be in the city, I would highly recommend you to treat yourself an Afternoon tea at the Peninsula Paris.

I have been to Haas&Haas several times. It’s that place, right behind Stephan’s cathedral. Well, it’s definitely not one of my favorite cafes but I must admit they probably make the best hot chocolate in town. Cafe Sperl and Haas&Haas do it like the Italians. I am talking about the thick creamy hot chocolate, and not the liquid one. Besides the hot chocolate, they also have a very big tea selection, which makes it ideal for those who are into afternoon tea, scones, and small sandwiches. However, on my last visit, I didn’t crave the hot chocolate; I chose that toast with egg inside as the photo proves (and I really don’t understand why they put all those chopped chives on it – I didn’t ask for it).

Besides, I didn’t take any photo of the decoration as the Cafe was full of people and I prefer not to take pictures of people that I don’t know who happen to be there and enjoying their meal. If you visit Haas&Haas, don’t forget to visit the shop next to the cafe. You will find countless delicious delicacies.♥
