after searching for the illusive vegan chocolate croissant...have read many times of them...they are supposed to be found at the kosher bakers around rue des rosiers, i found a lot of them, asked first if things were parve, everything, then sans ouefs (without eggs) and ther was nothing at any of them except one lebanese kosher baker i stumbled accross on a side street, they hade some cookies without egg that were parve, very nice and great flavors, pistachio was my favorite.

Be aware that much of France -- and this CERTAINLY includes Paris -- slows or completely shuts down (sometimes for weeks at a time) sometime during July or August. Many French get around 5 weeks of paid vacation a year, and this is when it usually gets taken. It's a time when it's a PARTICULARLY good idea to call ahead to check if places are actually open.

My sister notes that this is a very good vegan supermarket in the Paris area and they have 3 locations. Good selection on fruits and vegetables, and other items.

This Sears like store can be found all over the city and has a grocery store in the basement. They have all the vegan essentials if you have a place to heat things or ref. things. Soja yoghurt, pudding, patties, milk...and a few ready to grab and eat vegan meals in the deli area. Check it out. Fab organic vegan chocolate.

We just found this excellent Crepe restaurant mear Notre Dame. Plenty of vegetarian selections and they use either buckwheat or whole wheat flour. Reasonably priced and very friendly staff. Run by 3 brothers known as The Horse Man Team.

5th, 72 Rue du Cardinal-Lemoine. Metro: Cardinal-Lemoine. I ate here last night and had a fantastic meal. The food is very simple and tasty with the emphasis being on the flavours and textures rather than dressing it up. Like the kind of food you'd prepare in your own kitchen. The staff were very friendly. The waitress spoke English and the menu had English translations. The vegan chocolate cake was delicious! It's a small restaurant that got busy quickly. Arrive early if you want to eat without waiting.
