Pain au Chocolat - Edit

Most amazing pain au chocolat I've had. Filled with chocolate and topped with almonds. Amazing.

Pros: So tasty, Not expensive, Close to the Gare du Nord

Cons: They serve juice in plastic cups

Great cakes & food - Edit

We've been to Laelo many times by now. That means, it's time to update my review (and update the stars too). :)

The food is always tasty, and I appreciate that they change the dishes rather frequently. The eat-in menu consists of 4 or 5 different dishes (bo-bun, curry, burger, etc.), and they also have sandwiches and salads ready for take out.
So, I'm impressed by the variety of the offer.

The desserts and pastries are something different to what you can get in Paris, definitely worth a visit if you're in town.
As examples of viennoiseries, you can have almond croissants, chausson-aux-pommes, or variations of the pain aux raisins.
Patisseries are some of the best in the city, with many things you cannot find anywhere else. Choices change frequently, so just check the pictures to get an idea.
Finally, you can have frozen yoghurt too!

The service is friendly, and the atmosphere is nice as well.
Highly recommended!

Vegan croissants - Edit

Being vegan doesn't mean you have to miss out on fresh croissants and cappuccino for breakfast in Paris!

Delicious vegan almond croissant - Edit

Unfortunately I only had time to buy a vegan almond croissant to go. It was not at the same level as Cloud Cake's ones, but still sweet, flaky and delicious!

Super restau - Edit

Le goût est d'ordre, j'ai eu le plaisir de découvrir la pâtisserie vegan,tout ce que j'aimais dans la nourriture à base de produits animale,je l'ai retrouvé ici. Vraiment très bon, très peu cher pour la qualité de la nourriture, de la couleur. On s'envole rien qu'avec les yeux. Ce restau sort des sentiers battus et ose. Bravo l'équipe de Laélo ;)

Pros: la pâtisserie, la fusion, le goût,la présentation,

Bland main dishes but amazing pastries - Edit

When I first walked into the café, I really liked the cozy atmosphere (pillows everywhere!), and was impressed with the choice of salads, sandwiches and drinks to-go, as well as the beautiful desserts.
I tried the fish and chips, which consisted of three fish fingers, a slice of bacon, a vegetable wok, and a small portion of fries. The veggies and fries felt homemade, they were less salty and greasy than the usual, which was nice, but they lacked in the taste department. The fish fingers were also bland. The bacon was a nice flavorful addition.
My friend got the Mexican-style burger, which came with guacamole, coleslaw, bacon and barbecue sauce. He said it wasn't the best burger he'd ever had, and we agreed that the dishes were overpriced for their size (13-14€ each).
Since we had room for dessert, we each got a cup of frozen yogurt, which was 4.80€ with toppings such as chopped nuts and cookie crumbs. It tasted and felt exactly like real frozen yogurt, and was delicious!
I later tried a baguette sandwich with mayo, ham, cheese, cucumber and salad. The bread was very good but the sandwich remained bland overall, and was also pretty expensive.
The pastries, on the other hand, are amazing and totally worth the price. You need to try their almond croissant!

Love this place! - Edit

I stumbled upon this great place after a short walk. I ordered the Hawaii açai bowl and the almond croissant. It was the best breakfast I had in Paris! Staff was super friendly and the prices good. Very clean place with lovely vegan options. Will definitely come back next time I will stay in Paris.

Pros: Staff speaks English, Vegan pastries

Amazing desserts! - Edit

I recently discovered Laélo and I look forward to coming back here. I am mainly excited by their desserts: amazing pastries, croissants, apple turnovers, etc. They look nice and they taste very good. The food is also yummy (I tried the fish and chips) and you have the choice between 6-7 dishes that all seem interesting (bowls, kebab, fish and chips, tajine, etc.). The place is pleasant, you can stay here a while in the afternoon, eating cakes and pastries. The staff is friendly and you are served quickly. A great addition to Paris vegan places!

Pros: amazing desserts, good food, pleasant place, friendly staff

EXQUIS - Edit

Un endroit adorable où il y a un large choix de plats (chauds ou froids), qui sont excellents ! Ils vendent le mot "gourmand", et bien on est servis ! J'ai testé le Bo Bun, une grosse assiette avec samoussa, fallafel, nem, mangue, pâte de riz, avocat... et j'en oublie. En dessert, une nouveauté, la crème brûlée coco-banane, très généreuse, juste délicieuse. Et en boisson, un jus de fruits rouges frais, moins cher que dans les autres restaurants que j'ai pu tester. Le tout, pour 20€. Tout est dit !

Pros: Que du vegan, pas cher et gourmand ! (et écolos!)

Great place to have vegan gluten free cakes and other things - Edit

Everything is vegan and organic. Many gluten free options including among the cakes. They are testing a gluten free version for the croissant and I liked it.
The Brooklyn cake is a killer. I get a slice of it at least every week since I have tried it.
Friendly staff.

Pros: Homemade using fresh ingredients. Great value for

Cons: Closes at 8PM, not possible to have dîner.

Amazing pastries - Edit

So, I haven't had a chance to try the food but the desserts are amazing. The croissants, macaroons, and cake that I tried were all tasty. The friendly staff was helpful and accommodating with the language barrier. If you're a vegan looking for some french pastries, I highly recommend.

Pros: Pastries, Good value, Friendly Staff

Cons: Coffee was weak

Good desserts but - Edit

Checked this new place twice.
First time a menu with salad, main dish (soy based) and chocolat cake.
The second time only a main dish. Also soy based.
Both times the main dish had a strange taste. Maybe its me...
I will give them another chance though.

Pros: Good desserts, Menu not expensive, Friendly staff

Cons: Cooking to be improved

Disappointed - Edit

I went there very hopeful, especially for the pastries.
I ordered a bo bun and my friend went for a burger.
The food was very disappointing, the avocado was far from ripe, the samosas weren't fully cooked, the burger was tasteless, and overall the food was cold when it arrived.
We waited so long to get our food (even though there were very few people there) that I asked for my dessert to go, and didn't even have the heart to eat it.
I hope this isn't everyone's experience but I am truly disappointed.

Pros: Many choices of starters, desserts and drinks, vegan pastries

Cons: Bland food, Long wait, Very expensive for what we got
