Paris: Vegan Food Guide

Paris: Vegan Food Guide

Vegan food probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the French cuisine. Renowned for their creamy sauces and impeccable range of pastries, you wouldn’t expect vegan food to be at the forefront of French dining! Well at least that’s what I thought before travelling there recently.

After a quick google search and some vigorous Instagram-café stalking, I was inundated with an endless list of vegan juice bars, restaurants and markets around Paris. Not only did we discover an impressive range of plant-based cafes, but none of them failed to amaze!

If you’re planning a trip to Paris and interested in trying some delicious (and equally instagrammable) vegan food, then you’ve come to the right place!

 

(Note: not all of these cafes/restaurants are 100% vegan, but they all offer a range of vegan options)

 

1. Wild and The Moon

Ok, where to begin…this was by far my favourite café in Paris. Organic, plant-based, no additives, cold-pressed, plastic-free and gluten-free…it’s a health nerd’s dream! Wild & The Moon is the perfect spot if you’re looking for a wholesome, nutrient-packed meal. Whether it be their ‘Coffee Chaga Shake’ made from adaptogenic medicinal mushrooms or their Raw Superfood Salad, Wild & The Moon has got you covered.  

There are a total of 5 Wild & The Moon cafes dotted around Paris, which seemed like a good enough reason to go back another 3 times… Enjoy these snaps of our favourite bites, plus their groovy interiors:

Favourite menu items: Blueberry Scone with Cashew Icing, Vanilla Mylk

Close to: They have 5 locations, so close to everything!

    2. Love Juice Bar

    Love Juice Bar is your go-to destination for superfood smoothies, acai bowls and raw treats. I ordered the most incredible Chocolate Smoothie Bowl, topped with peanut butter, dried mulberries, cacao nibs and toasted coconut…definitely one of the best I’ve ever had! Love Juice Bar also offers delivery through the Glovo app, which is perfect if you’re planning a picnic nearby.

    Favourite menu item: Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

    Close to: Picasso Museum

    Address: 26 Rue Chapon, 75003 Paris, France

    Opening Hours: Mon-Fri: 9am-5pm, Weekends: 10am-6pm

    3. Fragments

    Fragments isn’t your typical health-food café, they focus on high-quality specialty coffee, made with home-made nut and oat milks. Although the menu is small and simple, there’s something for everyone. Whether it be the Smashed Avocado on Sourdough, Homemade Granola with Yoghurt and Stewed Fruits, or a selection of Parisian pastries (not vegan unfortunately). The café itself is super cozy and quaint, good luck finding a reason to leave!

    Favourite menu item: Smashed Avocado on Sourdough

    Close to: Picasso Museum

    Address: 76 Rue des Tournelles, 75003 Paris, France

    Opening Hours: 7am-7pm

    4. Season

    Our vegan food tour of Paris began with brunch at Season…a groovy and upbeat café located right around the corner from the Picasso Museum. Although this café is not entirely vegan, we were still spoiled for choice. I started with a homemade almond milk iced matcha latte, and paired it with the Noodle Salad, made with a creamy coriander and cashew pesto. They also had some great options if you’re travelling with non-vegans, like the Avocado Toast with Marinated Salmon or the Green Pancakes with White Chocolate Mascarpone and Blueberries.

    Favourite menu item: Vegan Noodle Salad

    Close to: Picasso Museum

    Address: 1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis, 75003 Paris, France

    Opening Hours: Mon-Sat: 8:30am-11pm, Sun: 8:30am-4pm

    5. Abattoir Vegetal

    Established in a former butcher, this 100% vegan eatery doubles as a coffee shop, café, restaurant and bar. Located in the beautiful area of Montmarte in the 18th arrondissement, this eatery is the most ideal scene for a balmy summer’s night in Paris. Abattoir Vegetal’s ever-changing menu is quite small, but nevertheless full of aromatic and fresh flavours. We ended up choosing the Tofu Teriyaki for entrée, and shared the Green Augustine wholefoods bowl and the Roasted Eggplant with Mango Salsa and Thai Rice. I’d definitely recommend both of these mains, they were packed full of flavour from the herbs and spices…wouldn’t change a thing!

    Favourite menu item: Green Augustine (changes seasonally)

    Close to: Montmarte

    Address: 61 Rue Ramey, 75018 Paris, France

    Opening Hours: Mon & Tues: closed, Wed & Thurs: 6:30pm-11pm, Fri: 10am-3:30pm, 6:30-11pm, Sat: 11am-4pm, 6:30pm-11pm, Sun: 11am-4pm

    6. Judy

    Unfortunately, our mapping skills weren’t up to scratch, so we ended up arriving at Judy just before they closed, which meant we weren’t able to order any food. But the staff were very friendly and offered us a selection of cold-pressed juices and homemade muesli bars…which we couldn’t deny! However, judging from recent food reviews and recommendations, Judy has some incredible vegan options and is a perfect brunch spot. I’ve heard their veggie burger and Buddha bowl is to-die-for!

    Judy also offers takeaway from ‘Judy Market’, which is a great option if you’re planning a picnic at the nearby Luxembourg Gardens, or need a quick on-the-go bite!

    Close to: Jardin de Luxembourg

    Address: 18 Rue de Fleurus, 75006 Paris, France

    Opening Hours: Mon-Wed: 8am-6:30pm, Thur: 9am-7pm, Fri: 8am-6:30pm, Weekends: 9am-7pm
