Quirky café with vegan dip plate

If you are looking for a beverage (alcohol and non-alcohol) paired with a snacking plate, this is the place to go. Went as an LGBT couple: the vibe was cozy and we could read our booms whilest waiting for food and drinks. She got a plate with 3 cheese types and I got a plate with 5 dips. Descriptions are my own, here is ranking of deliciousness of the sauces:
1. Pesto garlic goodness
2. Eggplant dip not as smokey as a typical baba gannoush
3. Pizza sauce
4. Banana pepper salsa
5. Black olive tapanade

Also have some Mexican plate options but did not look into or try these

Skip it

Nice place with fun interior. We only had drinks, but vegan milk was limited to 1 hot beverage because nearly empty. I had a chai latte which tasted really stale (coconut milk gone old?) and my friend settled for a rooibos tea which also tasted old. Menu looked cheap as did the seatings outside. On the question for a vegan snack we got peanuts and pretzels, nothing else available.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Old tasting tea /milk, Very limited vegan milk offer, No real vegan choice

If you’re a vegan just don’t go here

The bread was tough and the space was cramped. Sauces were moderately okay- we could have probably found better canned spreads at the grocery store.

I cannot explain how happy I was to have found this place!
I went with a friend on the 31th December before going to the arc of triumph to see the fire works!
There is only one vegan option but it’s totally worth ordering!
I would go again!
Super friendly staff and cosy atmosphere!

Intimate and Eccentric

I love the decor and cozy atmosphere it’s perfect for an intimate drinking experience in Paris. Even though they only have one food option, which is a platter of dips with bread, it is to die for and had us coming back for a second visit. The staff is very nice and most speak very good English. I have no complaints about this place. Perfect place to chill and grab a glass of wine or beer.

Pros: Bread/dip platter is AMAZING, Good wine, Atmosphere is lovely

Funky cafe with great decor

Had the simple yet filling vegan plate of Mediterranean dips. Definitely would go back. Enjoyed the hippy decor and cozy couches. Friendly staff. Check it out!

Great late night spot with friends

This is a difficult to describe place. It's not really a cafe, although the vegan plate of assorted dips and spreads served with bread is filling. It's more of a quirky lounge/bar. There are normal tables mixed in with sofas and low tables. It's a great place to stop for a drink and a quick bite with one friend or a group. The inside is dark and there are several levels of seating. The outdoor patio is great for people watching. The staff is friendly and understands what vegan means. Don't go expecting a fancy French dinner and you'll fall in love with the cozy quirkiness! (And try the chai tea with soy milk.)

Pros: Atmosphere, Location, Friendly/helpful staff
