First Review by Notre-Dame

BIG portions, SMALL prices!! Loved it! (Rare gem in Paris)! - Edit

We arrived to a mass queue of people and chose to take away instead of waiting for seating. A lot of the food was already sold, so great to see a vegan business is doing so well.

Service was really friendly and helpful, I enjoyed chatting with them!

The restaurant upstairs was super clean, modern and there is an open kitchen so you can watch your food being prepared. Both my partner and I was really impressed! We ordered 4 hot dogs between us to share, all were really tasty, the buns were super fresh, light and fluffy. The toppings were delicious, next time I plan to get there earlier to try other items from the menu.

Also worth mentioning they also have a fashion line, although pricey all looks cool and vegan too!

I took loads of pics to help others get a feel of the place :)

PS to walk here as hard to park the car on this road!

Delicious and fast service! - Edit

Oh wow! I can't explain how wonderful this place is. As with most vegan restaurants in Paris, the owners and employees are super sweet and informative about the menu. This place came recommended by the head chef of Le Potager De Charlotte, and he did not disappoint! The menu is small, but perfect, each vegan hot dog is named after a musician and all taste great. This place is tiny (does have 2 floors with tables upstairs) but you could easily walk-by if you're not looking closely. Definitely a must when in Paris.

Vegan Hotdogs - Edit

What a great idea and really well located on Rue de Paradis not far from Gare du Nord station.
Great hotdogs all named after rappers. They also do some plantain/sweet potato dishes and bento boxes. Fantastic juices too.
There's a small seating area upstairs with fresh tap water on the tables.
We'll definitely head back next time we are in Paris.

Pros: Cheap, Great dogs, Juices

Worth the Visit to Paris - Edit

This little restaurant with a counter downstairs and dining upstairs, is a real Paris gem. The staff are so lovely with positive, creative vibes. A few of them took the time to tell me about the restaurant, the cooking and the stories behind some of the many photos on the walls.

The little tables and benches with cushions gave this space a cozy feel, while the massive windows let in tons of light and allowed for people watching on the street below.

The food was excellent. Although, the food looked beautiful and was definitely fresh, I was actually surprised how flavourful it was as well. Avocados, peas and quinoa, never tasted so good,!

The clientele is hip, international and musical. In the time I sat there, more than one table nearby was patroned by musicians discussing their next move, gig or collaboration.

If you are vegan, you cannot leave Paris without visiting this happy little restaurant.

Dogtor Dre - Edit

After reading previous reviews of this place, thought I'd give it a go. And it exceeded my expectations. Genuine, friendly staff and delicious food. Really cheap for such good food. €15 for a hotdog, side, cake and a drink.

Super für jeden Tag - Edit

Man bestellt direkt unten an der Bar, die gleichzeitig die Küche St und bekommt dann an den Tisch geliefert. Das Restaurant hat einen südamerikanischen Flair und lädt zum verweilen ein. Vorallem die Beilagen waren sehr lecker, Kochbananen, Süßkartoffelbratling und gebratenes Gemüse.

Pros: Sehr lecker , Easy-going , Nichts ist frittiert

Cons: Etwas teuer

great hotdogs - Edit

Went here on Sunday. There was a long line outside, and the wait to sit upstairs was 40 min after we already waited 20 min in line, so we just got some stuff to go. It was ready super fast, like in 2 min. Great tasty food, my favorites were the sweet potato croquettes with a great salsa. Very friendly service too. No wonder this place is so popular!

Pros: greeeeaaat food

Cons: lines

Best Vegan Hot Dogs in France (and possibly the world)! - Edit

One might not eat hot dogs every day. But no matter if you eat two hot dogs a day, week, month, or year, the place to enjoy delicious dogs in a great environment is Le Tricycle. This very popular establishment offers a number of dog options, with equally delicious sides, and some good drinks to wash it down. Due to Le Tricycle's popularity, the seating area can be quite crowded, so visiting at off-peak ours may be a good strategy for some, and there's always the take-away option if it's full and you don't feel like waiting for a table.

Pros: Delicious dogs, many options and sides, economical

Cons: Can get quite busy

Inspired food - Edit

I love this place; the hotdogs are delicious, and the sides (plantain chips, sweet potato croquettes) are very tasty and unusual. There's a Caribbean influence in the cooking which I didn't expect from the restaurant's facebook page, but which is very welcome.

Unfortunately, when we visited (Sunday afternoon) the small sitting area was full and we would have had to wait 40 minutes, so we got takeaway. The seating area was lovely though, and I would definitely visit again to have a chance to sit down and to try some of the other choices.

Pros: Great food, Fast and friendly service, Speak English

Cons: May need to wait for table at busy times

Amazing vegan brunch! - Edit

One of the best places to have a brunch in Paris! It includes a hot dog (several choices, vegetarian or vegan the only difference being the kind of bread), a side dish, a juice and a dessert. Everything is really good, the staff is friendly, but you absolutely have to come early for the brunch (even before the opening time) since it's getting very popular and they don't take reservations.

Great Sunday Brunch! If only it wasn't so popular! - Edit

I just tried the Sunday brunch.

As mentioned in other comments, it comes with:
- A hot-dog (5 or 6 types, all vegan-izable and tasty)
- An appetizer (vegan options available, the plantains were a good choice)
- A fresh juice (nothing super exciting but good enough)
- A dessert (a couple of vegan options - the french toasts were superb!); and
- A hot drink (cafe, cafe with soy milk, chocolate with soy milk, tea)
All for 20€, which is a very good bargain.

I arrived around 12.15; and there was already a line of about 10 people. The service was a bit slow, so I got to start eating around 13.00.
It was worth waiting; but next time I'll go earlier.

By the way, even at the time I was leaving, people were still making line, so you can imagine how popular this place is!

It seems to me that the items from the Brunch are also part of the regular menu, so you can actually 'make' your own brunch even if you don't go on Sunday.
The price may get a bit more expensive; but perhaps you won't need to wait that long. :)

If only this place was fully vegan!!

Pros: good taste, fair price, nice variety

Cons: service a bit slow, brunch it's too popular! (is it bad?)

A great place! - Edit

I was very happy to try this place since they become clearly vegan friendly. The place is very pleasant, the staff is friendly and the food very good! I had two hot dogs that tasted good, with fair portions, and a nice dessert (granola and soya yoghurt). I also had a yummy pumpkin soup. Prices are fair for the quantity of food you can get. I am looking forward to try their brunch on sundays. Pictures look great! To sum up, I'll come back here to try new things.

Pros: vegan options, friendly staff, good hot dogs, pleasant place

Cons: not 100% vegan
