Delicious with Parisian Vibes

I got the avocado toast with tomato soup. My husband and I split a bread basket and it was all so delicious! There were only a few vegan options but I was thankful that there was an English menu and vegan options.

A+ Garden Croque

Despite not being a vegan restaurant, this was easily the best vegan food I've had in Paris. For some reason "fully vegan" in Paris seems to mean "we serve arugula, and arugula derivatives". Here, however, the Garden Croque was well cooked, crispy, and delicious. The menu also has a clear VEGAN delineation - not some Vegetarian-Possibly-Vegan nonsense.

Oh and they have Oat milk! I couldn't believe how many cafes only have cow milk here, but c'est la vie!

Pros: One really good Vegan option

Cons: Could have more vegan options

Nice coffee place with delicious vegan options :)

A good coffee and restaurant place, offering some different and fulfilling vegan options in a nice atmosphere. Happy to have found a place like this one, including vegan options which are great and creative.
(I have only tried the pastries and coffee offers there)

A lot less vegan options but tasty ones

Drinks can be made vegan with no apparent extra charge. The menu clearly indicates when a dish is vegan but offers limited options. The decoration is nice and staff is very helpful. Could use more vegan options

Pros: Delicious chai with oat milk, Tasty food

Cons: Not a lot of vegan options

The café crÚme with oat milk was delicious

The cafe creme with oat milk was really yummy! I definitely would come back to this cafe. Didn’t get a chance to try the pastries though, that’ll be for next time! đŸ€“

Un peu déçue

J’avais l’habitude de me rendre au restaurant du marais et j’en Ă©tait plutĂŽt satisfaite. Pour une question de proximitĂ© je me suis rendue Ă  celui-ci. J’ai trouvĂ© l’hygiĂšne du lieu un peu limite (toilettes, murs, vaisselle) et la prĂ©sentation des plats Ă©taient un peu dĂ©cevante. Le serveur Ă©tait sympa et jovial.

Pros: Options végétariennes , Options vegan

Cons: Cher, Petites quantités

We had breakfast here back in April. It was quite expensive but nice enough. Not too many vegan options though. Still, it's convenient.

Vegan and vegetarian options offered on the menu and understood. Good quality. Sometimes popular so be prepared to wait after midday.

Cons: omnivore

A vegan-friendly place, so rare in Paris...

Le Pain Quotidien - Varenne has a pleasant atmosphere and offers vegetarian and clearly indicated vegan dishes, from starters to desserts, including also breakfast. Some of the dishes are organic, food is fresh and of good quality. I had the Mediterranean plate that consisted of hummus, lentils and quinoa tabbouleh with different types of bread. It was good but the portion was relatively small compared to the paid price. For dessert, I took a vegan banana split composed of a soy yogurt, a banana, agave syrup, spirulina and different seeds (sunflower, squash, etc.). It was really yummy!

To sum up, Le Pain Quotidien offers a really convenient alternative to eat vegan with omnivores or when there is no vegan restaurant around the corner.

Pros: vegan options clearly indicated, from starters to desserts, good food and pleasant place

Cons: small portions so it is quite pricey, usually crowded and noisy
