Jacquemart-Andre Tea Room Cafe in Paris
The Jacquemart-Andre Tea Room is located within the beautiful palace style mansion house that was home to Edouard Andre and Nelie Jacquement, who were passionate art collectors, and after their deaths the whole place was turned into the Jacquemart-Andre museum.
About the Jacquemart-Andre Tea Room
This is an elegant old style tea room in Paris that is situated within the original dining room of Edouard and Nelie and whether you are interested in art or not, this sumptuous and outstanding setting is not to be missed.
So if you want to enjoy one of the fine teas, a pastry or a light snack such as a salad, yet in a historical monument in Paris, then this has got to be on your list of places to visit when on holiday in Paris...
When sitting at one of the tables in this large dining room you can gaze at the five beautiful 18th century tapestries on the wall above a mantelpiece, or the incredible King Louis XV tables in gilt and sculpted wood, that serve as sideboards.
And yet as your eyes wander, you cannot help but look up at the fabulous ceiling fresco that was the work of Giambattista Tiepolo, which originally came from a villa in Mira, Italy, and this particular fresco was purchased on just one of Nelie and Edouard’s incredible art collection travels.
In fact, the items on display within the elegant old dining room of their home are just a small taster of the impressive collections of works of art that this couple acquired over the years. And even if you had not decided to visit this palace style mansion house museum, you may be tempted to afterwards, just to see what the other rooms of the Jacquemart-Andre museum may hold!

Access to the Musee Jacquemart-Andre Tea Room

The Jacquemart-Andre Cafe is open from 11.45pm through to 5.30pm on a Monday to Friday with lunch being served until 3pm and snacks available until 5.30pm but they also have late night openings on a Monday until 7pm when there are also temporary exhibitions, yet reservations are still not an option.
On a Saturday and Sunday there is a Brunch served up until 3pm, however, we would like to point out that last orders are always at least half an hour before the closing time. Plus, the Jacquemart-Andre Tea Room is also open until 7pm on a Saturday evening during temporary exhibitions that are being held at this phenomenal mansion house as well.
Because the Jacquemart-Andre Cafe come tea room and the museum are located on the Boulevard Haussmann, it is very easy to reach from some of the famous landmarks in Paris that are only a short walk away, like the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees Avenue.
