First Review by lorrainian

Nice little cafe - Edit

Second Update, after visiting many times already. :)

For a coffee shop, the offer is quite nice both on the sweet menu (cupcakes, croissants, cakes, cinnamon roll), and on the drink menu (many types of hot drinks including matcha, curcuma or pumpkin spice lattes).
Everything is yummy!

The best vegan coffee shop in Paris, definitely worth stopping by whenever possible.

-----------------------------
Update of my review after visiting again for Sunday brunch.
Brunch was quite good and copious, as it includes two drinks (1 cold & 1 hot), one croissant, one main plate (chickpea wrap when I visited), and a generous portion of tasty waffles.
So, we were very satisfied, and probably coming back soon again. :)
As the place is not big, I'd recommend booking a table in advance if going for the brunch.

---------------------------------
Visited in September 2016, just a couple days after their opening.

I first saw Cloud Cakes a while ago in one of the "Vegan Place" events organized by the L214 association; and I'm glad they have now started their own cafe.

We visited during tea time, and we had the carrot cake and the red velvet cake. They also had cupcakes and croissants; and I think sometimes they offer savory snacks as well.
To be honest, I found the cakes to be too sweet for my taste, but to be fair, I think that's a normal sweetness level for Paris.
I thought also that hot drinks could be a little larger.

You order first on the counter; and then you wait at the table. The staff was friendly and they spoke English.

They do offer a set menu for lunch; excepts on Sundays, when they offer a brunch.
I'll visit again to try their food; but for the time being, I'm afraid they haven't convinced me with their sweets.

Good but needs improvement - Edit

I’ve had some pretty good food here (have been there for breakfast, lunch and brunch), but they seem to need better organization. On multiple occasions I’ve arrived only to learn that they are out of all lunch options (at around 1pm, standard work lunch time in Paris) or completely out of pastries even early in the morning. Most of their staff is nice but some have been quite unfriendly. The brunch was really good when I went but a little on the expensive side.

Great brunch! - Edit

On Sunday mornings, they offer a brunch for 25€, which is a fair price in Paris, including : a hot drink and a cold drink, a muffin, a full plate of tofu scramble and other food, and a plate of vegan pancakes. It was all very good, the staff very friendly, the place & tableware cute. I definitely recommend it!

Pros: Great brunch, Friendly staff, Instagram-esque place

Cons: Come in early, since the place is not very big

Delicious cakes and drinks! - Edit

Visited today and had a lovely time! The cafe is small but nicely decorated, it was pretty warm when we were in there but probably because it was so cold outside. I tried a lovely latte with soy milk and the chocolate praline cake which was delicious! My friend had the curcuma spiced latte with soy milk and a chia pot and she said they were both delicious. We got some cupcakes to take away (red velvet and hazelnut) and both were so tasty - best vegan cakes I've had! Staff were lovely too.

very nice experience - Edit

Me and a friend visited two days in a row. Once for some breakfast pancakes and once for some delicious vanilla cake. The place is very cozy and cute, sadly a little pricey but I suppose that is the standard in the city. Would recommend.

Pros: nice stuff, friendly atmosphere

Cons: really warm inside, pricey

Pas exceptionnel - Edit

L'accueil était froid. La part de gâteau au beurre de cacahuète était très très sucrée. Pas mauvaise mais pas vraiment bonne non plus. La part de forêt noire, malgré sa consistance réussie était fade, sans intérêt. De l'eau et des verres sont en libre accès, bon point. Au total, peut mieux faire. Peut-être que le reste de la carte est mieux.

Pros: Eau et verres en libre service

Cons: Gâteaux pas très réussis

Pros: Croissants!, Vegan butter and jam available on request

Cons: Make sure to go to the front to place your order

Cute cafe - Edit

I just stopped in for a hot chocolate and cupcake to go. The woman at the register was really welcoming and the take away box was adorable. Next time I'll plan to eat there as the interior is brightly lit and looked comfy.

Pros: Friendly service, Delicious cupcake, Nice interior

Cute little cafe with delicious treats! - Edit

Cloud Cakes was such a cute little bakery with so much choice, which coming from a little town I don't usually have. The croissants were perfect and tasted somehow buttery, and the cupcakes were delicious - I've never had a cupcake so good as the tiramisu cupcake from there. The lemon meringue tart was my favourite, as lemon meringue pie used to be my go to dessert, and not having had it for nearly 2 years was such an amazing treat. The service was fantastic and they were very patient with me when I attempted ordering in French (not very well). Was such a lovely café, my boyfriend and I iended up going all 5 days we were in Paris for, and I'm already missing this place!!!!

Pros: excellent bakes, friendly staff, good size portions

Cons: quite small

Fabulous food and desserts! - Edit

We were in Paris for about 5 days a couple weeks ago and because I was using the happy cow app we found several vegan restaurants which were all outstanding. Cloud Cakes was one of our favorites. We finally got to enjoy croissants and other pastries that our friends who are not vegan had been enjoying since we got there.. The first visit included a buddah bowl which had lots of fresh veggies and a great peanut dressing. We took some chocolate filled and regular croissants to go, but they didn't even last until we got back to our hotel because they were amazing. The next visit was for brunch and included a hot drink and a cold drink, croissants, a full plate of tofu scramble, salad, potatoes, and other various vegan foods, followed up with a plate of vegan pancakes. Everything was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend if you're in Paris. You must stop in Cloud Cakes at least once to try all their Delights. We're so glad we did.

Pros: Lots of dessert choices, Good prices, Excellent service

Cons: A bit small but thats most places in paris.

delicious, filling Buddha bowl - Edit

Not only do they do beautiful vegan cakes (and cookies, and croissants, and all the pumpkin spice coffee you can dream of) - Cloud Cakes also have lunches! I had a Buddha bowl which was absolutely divine.

Pros: good selection, wifi, takeaway option

Cakes, croissants, cappucino - Edit

Saw this on happycow and put it on my must-try list. It's cute little bakery cafe that offers so many VEGAN goodies. I couldn't close my eyes from just staring at all the choices... and drooling. Got a cupcake, crossiant, and coffee. YUMMY.

limited options - Edit

My partner and I eat vegan and gluten free, plus I'm allergic to peanuts. When we went, this cafe had only one thing to eat without gluten, the Buddha bowl. There weren't many options even with gluten (4 total options), and some of those were apparently sold out (We were initially trying to order something else, which they were out of). Because the restaurant was packed with people with a long line, we were under pressure to make a fast change to our order when at the register. There were tons of people in the way of the menu (there were literally about 30 people squeezed into a very tiny restaurant-- it was extremely hot, loud, and a mob-scene) and I didn't realize that the Buddha bowl had peanuts. We took the stuff to go, just to get out of there as soon as possible, as the atmosphere was very uncomfortable. As soon as we realized that there were peanuts in the bowl, we went back right away and requested a bowl without peanuts instead (the one we had was still in the package, unopened and untouched) but they refused, and seemed annoyed for us even asking.

New favourite café 💕 - Edit

In this cute little café you can treat yourself with the sweetest cupcakes and other yummy pastry, joined by a spicy curcuma latte or relax while having a buddha bowl with a nice sandwhich for brunch. The atmosphere is very welcoming and easy-going.

The prices are totally fine for Parisian standards. Around lunchtime I'd recommend reservations (if you want to make sure to get a seat or want to come over with a bigger group), because it's been pretty busy around that time and because the place is so small, you're sometimes forced to wait or come back later.

Pros: Super-yummy pastries, Welcoming atmosphere, Nice staff

Cons: Small café - sometimes you have to wait for a seat

Well located, food is ok but lack of diversity - Edit

The little café is located in a nice neighborhood in Paris near the Sentier metro station and near the Montorgueil Street which is packed with shops.
You can find some drinks, eat a salad for lunch, pastries and even croissants even though those are not the best you can find in Paris (the best one is Boulevard Voltaire 75011) and they don't make a lot so if you come late you won't find any. Too bad they don't make pains au chocolat and too bad they focus more on pastry that's not typically French.
It's quite simple and the staff is rather nice.

Pros: All vegan, Good location, Affordable

Cons: Little diversity, Not enough typically French pastry

Nice little place - Edit

It was a nice treat to have a croissant in Paris, fresh and flaky!
And some take away cake for later (which was absolutely delicious).
The coffees are very expensive, but the pastries and cakes have a good price.

Pros: Good selection of cakes, All vegan *-*

Cons: Coffees are expensive

True Paris expirence - Edit

I came to France for 2 weeks and during it I felt cheated for not being able to have a croissant during my stay. So I was extremely greatful to find this place. I got a morning croissant that was still warm, and a red velvet cake. Both delicious and tasted no different to the original.

Pros: Lovely interior , Great food

Nice place for vegan cake - Edit

Been there with my girlfriend for having a sweet afternoon-snack. Very comfortable location, the staff is friendly and the cake was tasty, but nothing too special in comparison to other vegan cafés. Apparently they have very nice breakfast there, which we didn't get to enjoy. If i ever come back to Paris again, i think i'll also visit Cloud Cakes. :)

Favourite spot in Paris - Edit

I was in Paris for 2 weeks and I came here again and again I loved it so much. The location is lovely, tucked away on a nice quiet street. Their cakes and sandwiches are really delicious and their croissants are to die for ! My non vegan friend loved the place too when we came for Sunday brunch, she said that the croissant was the best she's had so far (we've been in france for 2 months you must realize). This place makes me proud to be vegan!

Pros: Cozy atmosphere , Variety of desserts , Friendly staff

Cons: Drinks are a little expensive, decent coffee, but
