Super tasty - Edit

We had the lasagna and the quiche, both were incredibly good! The place was packed so we went for take away and ate on the canal nearby which was great, I recommend that if the weather is nice :) there's also a park nearby if you prefer.

good concept - Edit

Nice small cafe that serves salad plates of the day with additional extras like hot pots and lasagne, with the option to add soup or desert for €5. It was a little pricey but that's Paris. Service was excellent.

Pros: taste, new idea, service

Cons: price

goutu & sympa / tasty & friendly - Edit

Adorable Restau/café tout petit (il vaut mieux mieux réserver) tout mignon où l'on peut manger une grande assiette de légumes+légumineuses+céreales (riz ou autre) pour 10€ plus un plat chaud (lasagne, tarte, soupe, etc.) pour 4,5€.
Desserts à 5€, Jus pressé (legumes divers) et autres surprises...
Mini terrasse (pour les journées chaudes)
Service charmant et efficace.
---
Tiny vegan restaurant/café (reservation recommended) I tried today for the first time: the meals are colorful, generous and very tasty.
Get a large veggies+legumes+cereal based plate for €10, add a warm serving (lasagna, tart or other) €4.5, and/or dessert for an addition €5.
Juice, Soup, extras... also available.
Sweetly decorated and when the weather is warm enough (unlike today's freezing sun!) you can also eat outside.
Service is kind and efficient.

Pros: tasty, healthy, service is pleasant

Cons: maybe a tiny bit expensive

One of My Favorites in Town - Edit

I've been to Ginger countless times in the last couple of years.

The menu is basically just one plate which consists of a very colorful salad with vegetables/grains/etc; and a choice between a tart/lasagna/sometimes other dish. They also offer soups, juices and desserts such as carrot cake, a chocolate terrine, and a "trio du jour" (a mix of mousse, cream and crust).

The food is fresh and delicious, so I really enjoy it each time I go. The service is always great.

Ginger is quite small; and it can get packed very fast, so I'd recommend booking in advance.

Pros: tasty food, friendly staff, good value

Cons: none

Tourists - Edit

Operates a set menu, with either a 'Ginger bowl' (a bowl of various grains and vegetables) on its own, or the bowl is available with one of the plat du jour. There were three options; lasagne, parmigiana or a pie. Two of us has the lasagne which was delicious, and one opted for a lovely pie. The 'Ginger bowl' that came with it was a delicious selection of fresh vegetables, all flavoured subtly. It was a satisfying plate of food, the staff were lovely and desserts were delish too! The café is very small but the service and food are great - lovely spot for lunch when out and about in Paris.

Pros: All vegan, Friendly staff

Cons: A bit cramped

Creative Vegan - Edit

Ginger is adjacent to the Bastille subway stop, easy to find. The vegan food is excellent but they only offer a prix-fixe menu of three or so entree choices every night, plus appetizers and deserts. The portions are generous and creatively arranged. They say they are open until 10:30pm but if you arrive after 9:30 there may be little left. Best to get a reservation.

Pros: Quality vegan fare, Attractive space, great service

Cons: Limited choices, Fixed price, no a la carte

Vegetables, vegetables, vegetables - Edit

Dish of the days with a choice of side is 15,50 euros. A bit expensive but the food was good, varied and healthy.
Didn't know one could fit that many different kinds of salads on one single plate.
The "side" was either a salty tart or vegan eggplant parmigiana. Very delicious!
Staff was a bit overwhelmed but helpful.

Pros: Fresh, Seasonal, Varied

Cons: not many options

I had a really good lunch here, plenty of choice with the dish of the day, and they only use seasonal produce; great to see.
Although it was crowded, I didn't feel rushed, and I also had an excellent raw carrot cake for dessert.

Pros: Tasty food, Friendly and helpful staff

Cons: Small with not many tables

Enjoyable experience but a bit overpriced - Edit

Cafe Ginger is a bit of a concept of its own. There is a daily menu with limited choice. The food was delicious, varied and healthy. Everything is organic and the vegetable choice seemed seasonal. We got a plate with several small salads and a leek quiche.

The staff was friendly but we did have to wait for quite some time to get service and for our food. We were not that happy with the drinks. They only serve two types of wine, which I personally didn't like. The coffee I got afterwards was cold and not up to standards.

Apart from the drinks, I did really enjoy the food. We paid €16,50 for the main dish, which is a little overpriced for what it was.

Pros: Variety, Friendly staff, Cozy atmosphere

Cons: Coffee, Wine, Price

Good but basic - Edit

It is a nice small place to have either lunch or diner in the Bastille area of Paris, easy to find.
There is not a big variety of options and the meals are very basic. Carrots, coles etc.
I think the prices are rather high (16,50 for a main dish) for the basic food you get. It is healthy though and the ambiance is good.
I saw in another review that there was no alcohol, when we were there, there was beer and wine which was positive.

Pros: Very healthy, Nice little place , Central location

Cons: Often full , High price for simple food

lovely, delicious, healthy treat - Edit

I had an awesome lunch at ginger cafe. The main dish was super delicious and healthy, with so many different small portions of salads, dips, etc, just how I love it. For dessert we tried two cakes and especially the raw carrot cake was awesome. The place is very cute and cozy. Reservation recommended.

Pros: healthy, yummy

good, not exceptional - Edit

Popular but small vegan restaurant convenient to the Bastille. Reasonably priced food that was good. For lunch you order a choice of quiche/pie and it automatically comes with a variety of different sides/salads, some of which are better than others. Overall I was happy with my meal. Go on the earlier side or make a reservation.

Pros: all vegan, good food that's pretty healthful, lots of different vegetables

Cons: limited choices, automatic variety of sides , crowded
