a few vegan options but could be better

I've only been once but doubt I'll go again. You can do so much better for vegan dining in Paris. Most of the items are vegetarian but not vegan, they are too expensive, and nothing we had was very good (not bad, just not as good as we would expect).


Cons: not enough vegan options, not tasty, expensive

Overall experience was disappointing. Maybe for coffee/tea and some cake it's ok, but not for dining. Smoothie and soup was good, but everything else what we ordered was disappointing. Especially for that price. Wannabe gourmet style, but can't really pull that off. Food wasn't bad, but neither good. In my opinion main dish was too light (hey! veg*ans ain't grass-eaters!) and too bland.

Pros: atmosphere
Cons: food could be better

Sort of a coffee house with a menu. Decent options for vegans. Portions smallish, but sometimes that's just right. Many of the tables have short stools instead of chairs with backs. Big couch area for lounging with friend though.

Pros: Nice atmosphere
Cons: Uncomfortable chairs for eating a meal.

Modern atmosphere but food not impressive

We tried this restaurant for a sunday brunch. Even if the place has a very nice atmosphere, we find portions available very small in comparison to the price paid (25 €). In the brunch menu, you only have a limited choice of drinks (only tea and coffee) while other interested drinks are out of price.

For brunch, we had slices of bread with different spreads (all very good), a pumpkin soup which lacked seasoning, vegetables and muesli. Despite the price paid, it was not possible having rab which limits the interest of the brunch and makes it very expensive for the limited size of the offered portions.

Pros: organic and vegan choices, nice place
Cons: expensive, small portions, food not so tasty

Very disappointing

As Paris has got very few organic restaurants I was very excited to try out Cafe Pinson, but I got really disappointed: the food has very little flavor, portions are ridiculously small and expensive. Both the grains and the beans (chickpeas and lentils) were very badly cooked, and everything lacked flavor, with so little effort it could have been much nicer. The scary part was that the place was rather full despite that.

Pros: Good location, Nice atmosphere
Cons: Bad food, Expensive , Small portions

Expensive dinner for very little food

Posted on 07 / 06 / 2013

Just had dinner and paid 16 euros for a small dessert-size plate with black rice and 5 fries-like pieces of eggplant. The rice was tasty but very greasy. The oven baked eggplant was just OK.

Pros: Decoration, Location, Friendly service
Cons: Price, Small portions

...great for breakfast, too

they dont have much vegan options but the breakfast one is totally fine (juice of the Day, hot beverage, a glass of kind of a muesli, and plenty of bread with vegan butter (made from cocoa and almond I think) and thick chocolate.
It's rather big and the atmosphere is very very cosy (couches, music, deco, ...)
(Also: English spoken, I assume, since some of them speak french with a lovely english accent)

Pros: location, tasty vegan butter, open on morning
Cons: slightly pricey

A very nice place with a warm welcome.
We tasted a delicious chocolate raw cake and a tasty coffee.
Our only regret is the cake was a little too small for the price.

Pros: Great Cake, Organic
Cons: Small portion, A bit noisy

A vegan-friendly teahouse in Paris!

It is a very pleasant place to linger with friends. In the afternoon, they offer organic teas, hot chocolate or cappuccino vegan, and of course some delicious vegan pastries. Be careful some cakes contain eggs, but it is clearly indicated. There are also gluten-free option. We will return for lunch, because everything is vegan.

Pros: Charming place, Friendly Staff
Cons: Not enough choice of vegan cake
