A Day of Vegan Restaurants in Paris

by | December 16, 2018

Paris is easily a dream destination for people all over the world, with attractions including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and, Champs Elyessé. As one of the most populous and touristic cities in Western Europe, there is no lack of diversity here. We spent a day touring vegan restaurants in Paris, all in the name of research. With each of these places offering many vegan options, you could easily try something new every day for the duration of your stay.

With locations all over the world, the Belgian Café Le Pain Quotidien in Paris will always hold a place in my heart as the best. With both breakfast and lunch menus, this is a great spot to sit down to eat at before embarking on your exploration of Paris. All of the organic bread is vegan, except for the Challah. The menu is always changing but you can expect everything from a beautiful tartine,to vegan chili to colorful salad at this spot.

If you would like to treat yourself to somewhere “nicer”, don’t hesitate to stop by Veri L’Autre Cantine, not far from the Père Lachaise Cemetery where you can visit the tombs of Balzac and Jim Morrison. This specialty organic, vegetarian restaurant with many vegan choices to either take-out or eat in is the perfect place to Instagram your Parisian meal. The vegan lasagna and banana bread are my favorite but don’t be afraid to ask if the soup of the day is vegan-friendly. There are gluten-free options clearly marked on the menu also.

Végé’Saveurs (Dinner/Take-Out)

My favorite spot to grab a bite at every time I am in Paris, which is roughly once every three months, is without a doubt Végé’Saveurs. Near Bastille, a famous war monument, and served by metro lines 1 and 5, this affordable Asiatique restaurant offers not only an endless menu, but they also offer takeout which you can order online to pick up in store. They use mock “meats” made out of textured soy to replicate the look and taste of what is used throughout different types of Asian cuisine. Although it is advertised as a vegetarian restaurant, don’t let that fool you, most of their menu is vegan-friendly.

VG Pâtisserie (Dessert)

I first discovered this vegan pastry shop through Instagram and I can confirm that the sweet treats offered taste as good as they look. Situated in the eleventh arrondissement, this hidden gem offers everything from chocolate croissants to macarons. Like most pastry shops throughout France, VG Pâtisserie also offers seasonal and holiday-themed cakes and treats, such as the traditional French Christmas cake, the Bûche de Noël. Gluten-free pastries are also offered.
