tasty desserts - Edit

I liked the cupcakes and the cakes that I tried. The icing of the cupcakes is very special and not that much my taste but nevertheless it was good. The cheesecakes I had tasted good too but not after cheesecake. I would go there again and would recommend it!

Pros: good variation of desserts, yummie

Cons: not that good located, not very cozy to sit down

déception - Edit

C'est appétissant en vitrine et, au goût, eh bien... c'est franchement pas ça! Ni saveur franche ni de tenue en bouche. En plus c'est très cher.

Pros: original

Cons: fade, cher

GOOD VEGAN CAKES!! - Edit

I love to go to Vegan Folie's to take out vegan cakes and other sweets. Always good.
Unfortunately its absolutely not a place to stay in and sit down. The interior is cold and not welcoming or cosy. To improve!

Pros: cakes

Cons: interior

Good place for lunch - Edit

I would really recommend this place if you want to eat a quick lunch, not as much if you want to have a dessert. I've had their sandwiches and the baguettes are filling and very tasty, as are the toppings. The soup is tasty and filling as well.

The cheesecake was okay but nothing special, a little overpriced at 6€ and the brownie was dry.

The café felt a little impersonal but the staff was very friendly and upbeat. I also think it had a good location as I had a hard time finding vegan food in the area.

Pros: Nice soup and sandwiches, Friendly staff, Good location

Cons: Bland desserts

Cheesecake a go-go - Edit

We went to Vegan Folies after visiting the Market in Rue Mouffetard, because we wanted to try some vegan cakes. We had to wait the opening (they only open at 11:00 am) but it was worth it, as we had two delicious pieces of cheesecake. Had we waited a couple of minutes longer they would have brought out some gorgeous-looking cupcakes and other kind of cakes ... unfortunately we didn't manage to try them, too!

Pros: Excellent choice of vegan cakes

Cons: They only open at 11:00 am

Leckere Eiscreme! - Edit

Ich habe kein Eis mehr gegessen, seitdem ich mich vegan, zuckerfrei und weizenfrei ernähre.

Hier bin ich endlich fündig geworden, veganes Eis ohne Zucker in mehreren Geschmacksrichtungen! Ich hatte die Sorte Raspberry und bin begeistert.
Booja-Booja Organic Ice Cream werde ich nun meinem veganen Einkaufsladen zu Hause empfehlen :-)

Pros: vegan

Dissapointing - Edit

Despite bad reviews I decided to look for this place while I was in Paris. However, I am now agreeing with them. The selection of cakes while I was there was very small and not very exciting, and it was lunchtime during the tourist season, when I would expect them to have the most. I had a berry and chocolate cake and a coffee and as much as it was okay it was quite bland, and not any better than cakes I make myself, definitely not better than the vegan cakes at the cafe I work at. An interesting find, but I wouldn't go back.

Pros: Some Range , Convenient Location , Helpful Waitress

Cons: Bland Cake , Strange Texture , Uninteresting

disappointing - Edit

I really didn't like this place - the deserts were expensive (€6 for cake) and just not nice - the service was also not overly friendly. Almost nowhere to sit - wouldn't go back. If you have lower standards for vegan cake maybe you'd be into it

Pros: selection

Cons: price, service, nowhere really to sit

Great spot - Edit

As somehow who clearly and painfully remembers Paris years ago when vegan food was largely nonexistent, beyond South East Asian and some North African and Middel Eastern options - I welcome and applaud this place. Cakes on the Left Bank. Merci a tout!

Pros: Vegan cakes , Tasty salads, Lovely location

Good option for vegan students - Edit

It's not so easy to find a vegan place to eat in the Latin Quarter of Paris, infested with creperies and bars so it's quite convenient for students of any of the nearby universities.

I tried the smoked tofu sandwich and a brownie. I enjoyed them, they were tasty and were a decent and quick lunch although a bit expensive for my taste.

I will come back to try their other sandwiches and maybe their offer "Salad+Soup+Cake for 10€".

Pros: Location, Quick, Nice sandwiches

Cons: A bit expensive

Bit disappointing - Edit

I've been a few times for take out. A couple of times there has been very little to choose from.

I like this area and location, it's quite quaint with cobbled streets.

I have had the brownie, cheesecake, a cupcake and a cookie so far.

The cheesecake doesn't really taste close to one to me and wouldn't be to my taste. At 6 euros it was a lot to end up in the bin.

The cupcake I had was dry and bland and had a floral flavour added to it so it kind of tasted like old lady! They must not have greased the cake bun enough either as it was stuck to the cake and half of the dry cake lumped off with the paper.

The cookie was a bit dry and tasted too healthy but I did enjoy the brownie,

I'd still go back again in any case to try the milkshakes and sandwiches. Hopefully I will enjoy those a bit more.

Pros: nice brownies, location

Cons: limited selection on on occasion, overpriced for some items , dry and flavourless for some stuff

Good option for vegan sweets on Rive Gauche - Edit

Visited several times in the last couple of years.

At the beginning, desserts at Vegan Folie's seemed too sweet; but after you get adjusted to desserts in Paris, I'd say it's the average level of sweetness (but still a bit too sweet for me).

Because they have a good variety of items, it's a good place for taking out.
I personally prefer the savory tarts; but they serve also sandwiches, salads and soups, which seem rather simple; but fair considering the price and portions.

There are just a few seats to eat-in, they are not so cozy; but it will do for a quick bite.

Pros: variety of sweets, opens on Sundays, friendly service

Cons: none

Not as good as it looks - Edit

We went several times and tried a lot of different dishes.
Very good sandwiches and hazelnut milkshake !
Cookie was pretty good. But we found the brownies a little bit dry, cheesecake and cupcake were pretty average.
Nice place but just a few seats and you have to sit side by side: no tables !

Very nice waitresses.

Was Hoping For More Options - Edit

Not sure if it's because we stopped by mid afternoon but there just didn't seem like that much to choose from and was hoping for more options. Alas, I will not pass up the opportunity to try vegan food abroad so I ordered a brownie and cheesecake, both of which were tasty...and worth the stop.

Side note: there's a cute little area just up the street with a fountain that is a perfect location to enjoy your treat

Good cheesecake, but not a "French" patisserie - Edit

We tried a slice of cheesecake which was good and they had a take away container when we couldn't finish it.
I don't why it had gotten into my head that they would have French pastries here, but they sure didn't - so don't expect that.
Overall: the cake was good, the place was small and not that cosy, but the service was friendly.

Not as good as we'd hoped - Edit

We were really looking forward to visit a vegan bakery in Paris, but were not so impressed in the end. The cheesecake and the cookie were not bad, but not cheap and didn't blow us away. There was not really an atmosphere, it was very "clean" and quiet (no music).

Pros: Vegan bakery

Cons: Price/quality, Atmosphere

Vegan Cheesecake + milkshake! - Edit

We were inspired by the "CHEESECAKE AND BROWNIES" review to seek out Vegan Folie's and were not disappointed!
Everything at the cafe looked great, including the savouries. It's a nice clean modern feeling place with friendly staff, a few seats inside (even the loo is pleasant to use!).
We tried 2 cheesecakes, chocolate + caramel and red berry. Also peanut butter milkshake and a blueberry milkshake which were really creamy and tasty.
The cheesecake is the most cheesecakey cheesecake we've had since becoming vegan. Really amazing, definitely worth a little detour to try.

Pros: Best. Vegan. Cheesecake. Ever., Everything is vegan. , Gorgeous milkshakes

Vegan Folies - Edit

Amazing cupcakes and such an amazing place to have in Paris (not a lot of vegans there). The options of delicious sweets was very good but the prices were not cheep. Personally I was pay any amount of money for an amazing VEGAN cupcake but I can see how the price may turn people off. Its a really nice place to grab a treat after a long day of walking around and exploring paris though!

Pros: Amazing cupcakes

Cons: Pricey , cold staff, not a lot of seating

Yummy vegan bakery! - Edit

Nice little bakery in one of the most beautiful areas of Paris. Recently renovated, it now offers a more pleasant environment. You can find excellent cakes, cookies or cupcakes but also big sandwiches, quiches, soups and salads. Has good menu deals that include a sandwich + cookie/brownie for around 7 euros or a soup + salad + quiche for a little bit more. Not a lot of seating places, but you can take everything to go!

Friendly service, even better cheesecake! - Edit

I live around the corner from Vegan Folie's and am a regular customer. I absolutely love their vegan cheesecake. The brownies are delicious as well. The woman who runs the place is very friendly, helpful and speaks excellent English. They sell sandwiches as well as desserts. The sandwiches are nothing extraordinary, but are nice to have when you need a quick vegan bite. The only things I don't love is the cold interior, the cupcakes (dry), and the milkshakes (I got the peanut butter and it tasted like plant milk mixed with peanut powder-too watery). Overall though, I recommend going though. Seriously, the cheesecake is killer.

Pros: Cheescake, Friendly service

Cons: Cold atmosphere
