City Guide: Eating Vegan in Paris

vegan in paris

If you know me, you’ll know that I tend to eat a LOT when I visit new places (and in general…). I’m so passionate about vegan food; I get a buzz from discovering new vegan gems and being able to share them with others.

I have wanted to go to Paris for a while now, so decided why not take a quick trip and check out what their plant-based food scene is like? I was pleasantly surprised.

I think countries like France have a bit of a reputation when it comes to veganism, and not generally a positive one. Maybe there are some veggies and vegans out there that are avoiding travelling to cities like Paris because of this reputation – but I’m about to show you that it is totally possible to eat vegan in Paris, and easily!

Brasserie Lola

This is the most expensive place that we visited during our time, with a club sandwich being around 17 euros, and kebab and chips being about 12 euros – so still not TOO expensive, for Paris. Paying those prices was definitely worth it, the food was so nice, service was perfect, and it seemed like a restaurant with many regulars. We got to sit by the window on a tucked away table with stools; it was a great final lunch in Paris. The sandwich included faux meat, cheese, and roasted veggies; it was definitely one of the best sandwiches I’ve had. The kebab tasted great, but it didn’t taste like a typical kebab to me; the seitan/faux meat reminded me of What The Pitta, as they cut it the same, but overall the flavour resembled a samosa rather than a kebab (the wrap even tasted like filo pastry somehow). Wouldn’t have found this little gem without my friend Jorgie recommending it, so thank you Jorgie! I’d definitely recommend this place if you want a sophisticated lunch or a romantic dinner.

Wild + The Moon

I had high hopes for this place because I’d seen it all over Instagram, and its interior is definitely worth visiting for. I spent 20 minutes trying to get beautiful photos, but the lighting (and my lack of photography skills) just wouldn’t allow me to… I ordered a green smoothie, and mocha; the smoothie was perfect, but I wasn’t a big fan of the coffee, and it was so tiny! It’s fairly expensive here, I paid 9 euros for the smoothie, and 4 euros for the mocha; it’s all organic with no refined sugar, additives, chemicals, GMOs… you get the idea – so I understand why the prices are kind of high. I’d visit this place again, mainly because it’s so pretty inside, but also to try the food! Find it here.

Super Vegan

We ate dinner at this place 2 out of the 3 days that we were staying in Paris – we were addicted! I always hate admitting this but one of the things I missed when first going vegan was… doner kebab (ew, I know), so you can imagine that I have tried countless of vegan versions, and even made some myself. Although What The Pitta is indeed incredible (and some of the best fast food I’ve ever tasted), it was always slightly missing the typical taste of a greasy doner kebab… I know you’re thinking, “Why would you want anything to taste like a doner kebab, Jenny?” I have no idea, but I’m just saying, the kebab from Super Vegan was WEIRDLY accurate. You know when something tastes so much like the real thing that you keep pausing and picking at it to see if they’ve given you real animal products… Yeah. We also tried the cheeseburger, which was pretty good, but not entirely something that I’d order again as the faux meat was too soft, and we tried a burrito, which I also wasn’t really a fan of! Super Vegan gets a 10/10 from me, for its kebab, chips, and friendly staff though! Find it here.

Cloud Cakes

I’m a sucker for a cute café, and that’s one of the reasons why I was always so drawn to Paris – I’m glad it’s lived up to my expectations! Cloud Cakes is so cute, makes great coffee, has plenty of seating, friendly staff, and fair prices. We paid around 17 euros for a croissant, pancakes, and 2 cappuccinos. The pancakes were incredible, and I wish I could have breakfast here every single day. I still can’t quite get my head around the tiny coffee sizes that you get in France though, I think I’m too used to having those large coffees from Costa… Find it here.

Hank Vegan Pizza

Loved this place; it has a nice, relaxed interior with plenty of seating, and the service is quick so perfect if you haven’t got a lot of time to spare. The pepperoni pizza was incredible, and we ordered another pizza, which had sliced potato on top, I was skeptical at first but it tasted amazing. It’s good value for money, we paid 10 euros for both the pizzas, and they came in three reasonable slices. The pizza dough was so light and airy; I definitely recommend this place for any pizza lovers! There is also a Hank Vegan Burger, which we didn’t get to go and try. Find it here.

Season Square

This was one of my favourite spots that we came across; it’s a new-ish café with lots of seating and natural lighting (perfect for photos). It’s a lovely lunch spot, but unfortunately, they ran out of the vegetable bowls by the time we got there (around 3ish), so I’d recommend you go early! The burgers were great, and coffee and muffin were even better – I cannot stop thinking about that orange and chocolate muffin… The place has a great vibe to it; I could definitely sit there for hours. Find it here.

Hot Vog

This was the first vegan place that we ate at in Paris, and it set the bar pretty high! I don’t tend to buy hot dogs when I’m out as I think the ones you can buy from the shop are just as good, but we were absolutely starving by this point. We paid around 5-6 euros for one hot dog, which isn’t too bad. There’s only room for a couple of people to sit in the back of the shop, so I wouldn’t advise going at lunch time when it’s likely busy! They sell snacks, drinks, and their own tote bags too. Find it here.

I probably wouldn’t have found half of these places without using Happy Cow, so if you’re veggie or vegan, definitely check it out – it’ll be your best friend whilst travelling!

Have you been to Paris? If so, what are your favourite places to eat at?

    I was a vegan for 15 years. While I’m not anymore, I definitely appreciate how hard it can be when traveling. Really great and helpful post.

    Oh my goodness you found some amazing places to eat. I think if I had to choose one it would be Season Square just based on the muffin.

    Oh wow Jenny this is such a lovely post! I love vegan foods and I know people find it hard to locate places that cater to such a lifestyle. I’m mostly vegetarian lol I eat chicken (certain parts) seldomly and it has to be prepared a certain way & turkey at Christmas. So I’ll keep this post in mind when I venture out to Paris 💕

    This post made me so hungry, haha! 😀 Everything looks yummy. I really want to go to Paris again one day, only been there once. I’m currently still doing Veganuary and although it has been going pretty well, I still feel that there could be more options available for vegans!

      Hahah then the blog post was a success! Oh, yay for you doing veganuary!! I can imagine it’s pretty tough to find out about all the best restaurants/products/recipes all in one month – it’s kind of like shoving you in the deep end. It usually takes people a few months to settle into veganism, so it’s cool that you’re doing so well so quickly 🙂

    Oh wow this is great, so many options! Going back to Paris now I eat a vegan diet has definitely been a deterrent as I thought I’d have a much more limited choice. I don’t like the fake meat but pizza and pancakes? Sold x

    All that food looks so good! I’m often vegetarian when I travel (which I know doesn’t make sense, because I could really be vegetarian all the time), so I always look out for places that do vegetarian versions of meals.

      Being vegetarian whilst you travel is a great idea, it’s about whatever works for you! Totally cool 🙂

    Wow I’m actually quite impressed that you found this many places that cater for vegans! I’ve lived in France for 13 years and found it so hard just to be a vegetarian. It was only ever pizza or pasta when I went out! Definitely going to keep this post on hand for when I go to Paris!

    This is awesome! I have recently become a vegetarian and have a huge trip coming up, and have been anxious about how I will survive. The idea of Happy Cow is a great one, I will definitely utilize it! When I return to Paris I am so excited that I will have so many ideas thanks to you!
