A Priori Thé

Nestled in the historic Galerie Vivienne, just north of Jardin du Palais Royale, A Priori Thé is tea room offering an array of single flavored & blends of tea. They offer homemade scones, which are the star! An outdoor seating area is ideal for pousettes, as the interior is small. They take reservations for large groups, and most accommodating to mothers & children.

“Along with a group of mothers & children, we came here on a weekday morning. We had reserved ahead of time as we were many, around 15 or so not including the kids. They seated us in the outdoor area, which is really in the grand hall of Galerie Vivienne, so no need to worry about the weather. The children played and ran around. For the first time, the Parisians didnt seem to mind, especially not the tea room staff. I realized it was one of the only moments of dining that I didnt worry about my daughter and felt relaxed. The delicious & savoury tea – Empire du Sud (a blend of black tea with almond) and the scones served with jam & butter/cream are well worth the trip alone. Definitely, a repeat!” (CA, Sep 2011)
