Tea room by Louvre

2012-03-09

1.jpgEven the biggest lovers of art must admit that the visit of Louvre is exhausting. You get tired by walking through numerous halls, by emotional experience, all the beauty must be processed and absorbed.

Of course, Louvre offers the possibilities of refreshment. But let’s be more original, get out of Louvre, walk about 300 metres to the square Place du Palais Royal and you c3.jpgan enjoy a very pleasant and not expensive refreshment in the tea-room called „Tea by Thé“.

The place is not very fancy, but is pleasant with its green and purple interior design, its young, polite, complaisant and efficient staff. The choice of meals is largely sufficient for a tasty lunch. Spinach and goat cheese tart with fresh salad and a truffles cheesecake with sweet haselnuts compensate the calories lost by several hours walk in Louvre.

It takes some time to choose from a large selection of hot teas, ice teas, tea cockteils or a bubble tea. Raspberry white chocolate tea? Vanilla Earl Grey? Or „Honeymoon“ – black organic tea with accacia honey and a milk foam? You confirm that the choice is difficult? That’s the reason why people like to come back to this place.

The tea-room has a lovely terace with the view on the whole square Palai2.jpgs Royal and a big advantage of the place is that there is enough place even if you come as a group. The choice of tables with fauteils or chairs with interesting shapes enable an intimate discussion of a couple but also offer enough place for groups sitting around one table. To the requests of customers, the waitors respond „yes, of course“, and to their thanks they react „it is natural“.

Although the tea room is located on the typically touristic place, you will notice that the French prevails, the local people like to come here and the tea-room staff know some of them and know in advance what they wish to order.4.jpg

The shelves by the selling desk offer dozens of tea varieties, and if you enjoyed drinking your tea or if some tea seems attractive for family evenings, you can buy it in a nice metal or paper box and take it home with you.
