First Review by mirandaphillips

Too expensive and not enough vegan options - Edit

I went there for a vegan breakfast, but I was a little disappointed.
There were two vegan options and both were really too expensive. The "vegan" was clearly indicated only for one of these options, for the second one I had to ask.

Pros: Location

Cons: More vegan options, Expensive

loved it! - Edit

I didn't even know this place was vegan-friendly before we went in so it was a really nice surprise!! I had a vegan bagel and a green smoothie and then we went back another day (bc I loved it so much) and tried a different smoothie and the soup of the day. I loved everything. The staff was friendly and I really loved the area.
I didn't find it expensive considering Paris isn't the cheapest city in the world

Pros: delicious vegan food, nice staff, lovely area

Cons: none

A little expensive - Edit

They had quite a few vegan options and you could switch out cow milk with plant based alternatives which was good. However I thought it was expensive and you didn't get value for the money. The interior was nice but it was small and felt a bit stressful.

The matcha latte I had was good but my avocado toast was bland and didn't fill me up.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: No value for the money

good for a light bite - Edit

Not many seats inside but if it's a nice day plenty outside with a great view. Food was simple but hearty and filling with local and homemade drinks.
Server spoke excellent English.

Nice black bean soup and vegan bagel - Edit

Some items a little on the expensive side but the soup was only €6.5 and therefore great value!

Sit outside in good weather for a lovely view of Norte dame.

Helpful staff and well signed vegan items.

great place with vegan options - Edit

For coffee they have almond, soy and oat milk! For food they always have at least one option (even though we got there before they had their delivery). I went several times while it town and loved it!

Not good for a student budget - Edit

I was really excited to try out this cafe as I love the bookshop and had heard great things, but I'm afraid I was a little disappointed.

I went with a friend to get some brunch, and we found that there weren't many options and that everything was very expensive. We wanted to give it a chance though so my friend had Indian split pea soup and a café allongé which came to 9 euros and I chose the vegetarian bagel option - feta and grilled vegetables (8 euros) and a filter coffee (3.50).

The interior is quite small and was packed so after getting our coffees we headed outside. I then realised I hadn't been offered any milk with my coffee, and peeked back inside but couldn't seem to see any so just had it black. It was nice coffee but very small for 3.50.

When our food arrived, it was on paper plates, which I found a bit weird as I'd already paid 8 euros for this bagel... My friend was offered bread and received two small slices with her soup. My bagel seemed only to contain one vegetable (courgette) which was fine as I love courgette but not quite what was advertised.

I have to say that we both enjoyed our food, but quite honestly I thought the price was ridiculous. I know it's Paris, but there are plenty of places in the area that are much better value.
It would be great to see Shakespeare and Co perhaps try to include some cheaper options on their menu.

Pros: Nice food, Good location, Nice decor

Cons: Bad value, Expensive
