ANGELINA – Versailles, FRANCE – The Hundred Years Tea Room

I am a tourist.

When strolling around in the chateaux for my 4th times (or 3rd?), planning where I should take my guests to go for lunch (except sandwich in my bag before visiting the huge park ) of the Chateau. Just before the end of the tour, I heard a sound of restaurant (kling~kling + whispering), Angelina!

Beautiful displayed desserts are calling, how I can  not answer?

-“Trois personnes svp.”

Polite waitress lead us to a full but quiet room. Mini me in my heart can’t stop screaming and jumping up and down with excitement. WoW Wow Woww i m going to lunch next to king and queen la~
