Mesa

  • Restaurant Type: Mostly Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan (mostly) Upscale Latin Inspired Cuisine

Mesa, located in HOY – the vegetarian and vegan hotel in Paris, opened in 2020 and is unlike anything else Paris has to offer.

What makes it special?

Well, it’s the only place in town to have a fancy, reservation only, vegan Latin inspired dining experience. Think ceviche, chorizo, and black beans. They don’t stick to the Latin theme entirely though. They also offer locally made vegan cheese, a killer breakfast and brunch, and other dishes made with mostly locally sourced ingredients.

If you’re looking for a refreshing experience, check them out.

Note: The restaurant is mostly vegan but they do use honey in some dishes, so make sure to ask before ordering.

42 Degrés

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Upscale Raw Vegan Cuisine

If you’re in Paris and craving an upscale dining experience, consider 42 Degrés. This raw vegan restaurant serves food that is created below 42 degrees Celsius. If you think that means carrot sticks and hummus, you’re wrong…sort of. There is a mashed sprouted chickpea dish with dill & pickled cucumber slices on the menu. The beautifully presented food is nothing short of artwork. You can expect dishes like, Tartare de champignons, raw portobello burgers, veloute de courgette, and mousse au chocolat!

So if you’re looking for what is possibly the best vegan raw cuisine in Paris, 42 Degrés is the spot.

Jah Jah By Le Tricycle

Jah Jah Vegan Restaurant in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan

The regular “vegan steak” is organic, and the soft buns are locally made just for the restaurant. The vegan cheese is even melty.  Don’t forget to add a side of crispy seasoned wedge fries to go with your burger for a match made in heaven.

 Aujourd’hui Demain

Aujourd'hui Demain Vegan Restaurant in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan Sweets, Burgers, & Breakfast

Behold the best vegan burger in Paris!

Aujourd’hui Demain is a vegan cafe, restaurant, grocery, and clothing store in Paris. The incredibly popular cafe serves simple, yet mouthwatering, dishes, delicious desserts, coffee, beer, wine, and juices. It may just be my favorite vegan Paris restaurant.

The Great Blue Burger at Aujourd’hui Demain is by far the best vegan burger I’ve had in my life. The Beyond Meat patty is topped with a fat slices of vegan blue cheese, figs, carmelized onions, lettuce, and tomato, and drizzled…no drenched in even more blue cheese sauce.

Aujourd’hui Demain can get incredibly busy but this burger is seriously worth the wait.

Tien Hiang

Tien Hiang Vegan Bo Bun Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Vegetarian
  • Serves: Asian Cuisine

The more time I spend in Paris the more vegan and vegetarian Asian restaurants I find, eat at, and am blown away by. I recently paid a visit to Tien Hiang Vegetarian Restaurant for a hearty  hangover Sunday lunch.

Let’s just say, I left thinking more about the food I had just enjoyed and less about how my previous night’s activities were putting a damper on my mood.

Tien Hiang is vegan fried food and mock meats heaven. In addition to the usual vegan spring rolls and dumplings Tien Hiang also has fried vegan chicken on the menu.

Obviously I couldn’t pass up the chance to give this a try. They were crispy, salty, fried bits of some kind of mock meat which I assume was made from some kind of seitan. Dipped in sweet and sour BBQ sauce, these meaty delights were a godsend.

As for main dishes, I would highly recommend the mock beef Bo Bun and the chicken stir fry. Both are exceptional.

Bodhi Vegan

Bohdi Vegan Restaurant in Paris Vietnamese Ravioli
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Asian Cuisine

Another amazing Asian vegan restaurant that should absolutely be on your radar is Bodhi Vegan in Paris. This little restaurant’s massive menu is full of mock meat delights, and the staff are super friendly and welcoming.

Bohdi Vegan Paris - Vegan Chicken Hotpot

I ended up visiting twice in one week because I loved the food so much. I’d highly recommend the chicken hotpot which came to the table sizzling hot. Paired with a side of white rice, the tangy sauce and the mock chicken were fabulous.

The Vietnamese ravioli were also exceptional and the perfect starter. Delicately thin rice paper filled with tiny bits of mock meat and peanuts, and topped with mint and a tangy vinegar sauce, chili, and soy sauce. I could eat this every day!

Le Potager de Charlotte

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: French Cuisine

Le Potager de Charlotte is an all vegan gourmet restaurant in Paris serving healthy and environmentally food. Most of the food on the menu is gluten free, and has little or no added salt, sugar, or oil.

Sounds boring, right? Actually, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Fresh (mostly local) and seasonal ingredients with big flavors are used to create each dish. Sauces are infused with bold flavors, and dishes are topped with various nuts and seeds to give varied textures and big bursts of flavor.

The highlights of my meal included the chickpea and rice pancake with cashew cream, and the millet and green asparagus curry with button mushrooms. Every dish, however, was extremely flavorful and fresh, and tasted quite healthy.

If you’re looking for a gourmet vegan experience in Paris that won’t leave you feeling weighed down, look no further than Le Potager de Charlotte.

Le Potager du Marais

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: French Cuisine

If you’ve spent a few hours wandering around Maris and indulged in a bit of retail therapy, chances are you’re feeling a bit peckish. If that’s the case, and you have a hankering for a bit of classic French cuisine, then head to Le Potager du Maris.

This vegan restaurant serves the big French classics, but with a vegan twist. You’ll find cassoulet, boeuf bourguignon, pâté and French onion soup. All vegan of course!

A rustic restaurant in the heart of the Marais, Le Potager du Marais offers vegan adaptations of classic French fare: hachis parmentier, cassoulet and even bœuf bourguignon. It is very popular with locals, so make sure to book in advance.

VG Pâtisserie Végétale

Pâtisserie Végétale Paris France
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan French Croissants & Pastry

Look no further, I’ve found the best vegan croissant in Paris.

VG Pâtisserie Végétale is a spectacular little pastry shop selling incredible vegan croissant, pain au chocolate, and croissant aux amandes. VG Pâtisserie also serves beautifully composed vegan versions of french pastry like macarons, Paris-Brest, lemon curd tartlets, chocolate cakes, and more.

Vegan French Pastry in Paris

Cloud Cakes

Cloud Cakes Vegan Cakes in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan Cakes, Cupcakes & Muffins

If you’re ready to sink your teeth into delicious vegan cakes, cupcakes, and pastries in Paris, Cloud Cakes is another awesome option.

This all vegan cafe and bakery is the perfect place to get your mid-day sugar rush on while out exploring all the best sites in Paris, but don’t be surprised though if you have to wait around for a seat because this place gets packed.

Favorite options include the blueberry and rosemary cake, the red fruits muffin, and the red velvet cupcake. Paired with one of their delicious coffees and you’ve got 10 minutes in heaven.

Grounded

Vegan Date Scone from Grounded Cafe in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan Sweets & Coffee

Grounded is a lovely little vegan cafe in Paris serving freshly baked sweets, simple savory meals, and high-quality coffee. The cafe is fairly new and opened in July 2018.

Since most vegan cafes in Paris can get uber busy (I’m looking at you Cloud Cakes), Grounded is a haven.

Quiet and cozy, it’s the perfect place to relax, sip your coffee, and munch on a sweet vegan treat in peace. The date scone with apple compote is the perfect rainy day treat. Paired with one of their delicious coffees and you’ll be in heaven.

The best thing on offer though? Their delicious buns. The flavor combos change daily but regardless of which one you get, you’ll love it!

Just try not to let the word out, I rather like this uncrowded slice of vegan Paris life the way it is!

Land & Monkeys

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan French Croissants & Pastry

This boulangerie (bakery) chain is a vegan utopia of croissants, tarts, cookies, cakes, breads and sandwiches. There’s also salads and soups, the quality that you’d expect from a top level Paris boulangerie like Land & Monkeys.

Totally plant-based, the breakfast stands out with a divine quiche. There are five locations around Paris, and although mostly a to-go spot, there’s limited room for dining in.

Boneshaker Donuts

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan Donuts & Coffee

Vegan donuts seem to be on a march to conquer all, and any vegan nowadays should have a stellar donut shop within reach. Boneshaker Donuts in the second arrondissement has a fully plant-based menu, and their donuts are made fresh every morning by serious pastry chefs.

These puppies sell out frequently, so don’t think you’re going to waltz in one late afternoon and have plenty of options. They also have brownies and cinnamon rolls that are the real deal.

Lemonades and iced teas are on hand, and the coffee comes from a local top roaster. They also cater, for anyone wanting delicious vegan donuts at your next soiree.

Jo and Nana Cakes

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan cakes, pastry, tea

It seems that fully plant-based patisseries are springing up all over Paris, and Jo and Nana Cakes should be added to any sweet-lovers list.

A tiny shop with retro vibes and jazz music, this little cafe offers tea and traditional pastries, as well as American-style layer cakes. Bowls and sandwiches are available for savory bites.

On weekends, their snazzy brunch is delightful with pancakes and french toast done up with gourmet flare.

Organic teas from all over are the focus for beverages, although they do have lattes and matcha, both fully vegan. And their coffee comes from an excellent Parisian micro-roaster.

Check their online shop for delivery options.

Jimmy’s Street Food

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan American cuisine

As with the donuts, American comfort food has seemed to caught on in The City of Light, and Jimmy’s Street Food is a perfect example of Americana bites gone vegan.

Burgers, Jackfruit wings, mac n cheese, and other usual staples of this cuisine are available. Long subs sidle up against sweet potato fries at this little place that packs a punch of flavor. If heavy is not your thing, then lighten up with their caesar salad.

The cookies are enormous and as tasty as they are large. Lemonades, colas, coffees, and the well past trendy IPA are all on offer as thirst-quenchers.

Noon to midnight are the regular hours, so stop in late for junk food satisfaction.

Vegan High Tea at The Shangri-La Hotel

  • Event Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan High Tea Service

For a break from the ordinary, or a special gift for a friend, Vegan High Tea at The Shangri-La Hotel provides a taste of the exquisite that dazzles the senses.

Dive in to savory mini-sandwiches, biscuits, and scones served with dairy-free clotted cream. Even the champagne is vegan, sans egg whites.

The tea list is extensive and the leaves hail from China, Sri Lanka and other vaunted nations across the teascape.

Monday to Friday 3:30pm to 5:30pm… Weekends 4pm to 5:30pm.

brEAThe restaurants

  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Cocktails and Asian cuisine

With a vegan asian and cocktail bar in Pigalle, and a vegan Asian maki bar in Montorgueil, the brEAThe restaurants offer Asian bites with a fully vegan menu along with funky cocktails.

Asian tapas abound with crusty panko seitan bites. Gua Bao comes as fluffy white buns overflowing with seitan, carrots, cucumber and coriander. There’s also goyza-like raviolis, along with edamame.

Wines, beers, teas, champagne and cocktails are all of fine quality, and they even have mocktails for those that want to stay alcohol-free.

English menus and a pleasant helpful staff are a plus.

Toutofu

Vegan Dan Dan Noodles at Toutofu in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Totally Vegan
  • Serves: Vegan Chinese cuisine & homemade tofu

Toutofu is an all vegan Chinese Restaurant in Paris that makes their own organic tofu on site, which is obvious by the giant bags of soy beans stacked in the corner of the restaurant.

The dishes are Toutofu are simple but superbly seasoned, and of course, feature their homemade tofu. My favorites were the Spicy Dan Dan Noodles and the Soy and lentil beignets with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce.

The dishes here are all pretty affordable as far as Paris is concerned, and the staff are super friendly. Additionally, you can buy their tofu for under 4 euros a block to take away.

Vegebowl

Vegan Daily Bento Box at Vegebowl in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Vegetarian
  • Serves: Asian cuisine

Vegebowl is a vegetarian restaurant in Paris serving veganized versions of Asian dishes. The large menu is 90% vegan and features a wide variety of dishes with mock meats like chicken, beef, pork, duck, and fish. Soups, spring rolls, curries, and stir fries are all on offer.

I visited at lunch and opted for the daily bento box which came with several mock meats, a salad, rice, and fruits. The portion was on the smaller side but the flavors were big and it was a good way to sample more than one dish without going broke.

Chiche Hummusiya

Chiche Vegan Hummus in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Israeli cuisine

“A warm and creamy hummus, a soft pita, a sun-drenched fresh salad, all served on a large table with friends or strangers, is the concept of hummusiya found in every street in Tel Aviv.” That and more is what you get at Chiche, Paris’s first hummusiya.

Creamy hummus – check! Soft pita – double check. Sun-drenched fresh salad – not entirely sure as I’ve never made it past the amazing hummus to bother with leafy veg. Friends and strangers dining together – check. And on top of that, the service is some of the friendliest in Paris.

Even though Chiche isn’t vegan, or even vegetarian, and they only have a few vegan dishes on the menu I’m including them in this article because the hummus is by far the best I’ve ever had…and I’ve eaten a lot of hummus all over the world.

The vegan items on the menu are the Classique and Khatzil hummus plates. The first being hummus topped with a healthy spooning of tahini, stewed chickpeas, plenty of pickled red onions, and parsley. The latter, which is my favorite, is topped with spiced roasted eggplant, lots of pickled red onions, and parsley.

Both options are served with a warm fluffy pita. If you’re super hungry you can also opt for the baked sweet potato, sans aioli. Even naked, it’s a treat.

La Guinguette d’Angèle

  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Healthy food and culinary kits

Naturopathy meets gastronomy in this petite culinary setting where seasonal veggies and fruits are the focus. Part artisanal shop, part lunch spot, and part masterclass studio, La Guinguette d’Angèle has a wide range of options for health-conscious foodies.

Gluten-free and vegetarian healthy bites are on hand, and they also have vegan options for dine in or take away. Culinary kits are available, the matcha and the snack pack are both vegan.

Masterclasses range from pregnancy and postpartum advice to a detox course, and other workshops on dietary advice.

Check their daily menus for vegan bites like veggie couscous with mint, a vegan bortsch, and a chocolate banana bread, also vegan. It’s another small eatery with a garden option.

Maisie Café

  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Healthy food, juices, smoothies, bowls

Another all-in-one dynamo with healthy bites at the fore. The dine in experience is more juice bar meets cafe, California style. But as mentioned, Maisie Café is a brand that offers a wide range of options to explore for the foodie focused on health first experiences.

The cafe is small and bright with juices and smoothies on hand, along with breakfast and fruit bowls, and they also have sandwiches and other nibbles with plenty of vegan choices. Quinoa curries snuggle up against noodles in this pleasantly warm environment.

The cafe itself is only the tip of the iceberg, as they also offer ebooks, multi-day detox cure packs, catering, and also wellness retreats with yoga and workshops where vegan meals are prepared with seasonal and regional products.

For catering they offer delicious vegan bites in which they collaborate with other upper level brands to make any event exquisite and special but still healthy. They even have their own space, if need be.

Whether a cocktail party, press presentation, or a private lunch, they’ll arrange a healthy vegan culinary experience that is top-notch.

El Guacamole Taqueria

Vegan Burrito at El Guacamole in Paris
  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Mexican cuisine

El Guacamole Taqueria isn’t a vegan or vegetarian restaurant in Paris, but I’m including it because I love Mexican food. It’s is a Mexican owned and operated restaurant that serves tacos, burritos, nachos, and other Mexican dishes.

The vegetarian burrito without cheese is vegan and is loaded with cactus, mushrooms, guacamole, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. The flour tortillas are homemade and the whole thing is grilled to perfection.

It’s a big messy, delicious dish that will satisfy even the most hungry vegan appetite. Highly recommended if you’re craving Mexican food, hungover, or just looking for something a little different in Paris.

Liife

  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Sports Food

Have a favorite sport? Looking for some health food in Paris? Then head straight to Liife. This unique, restaurant has created dishes around sports. So if physical activity is your jam, they’ve got the bread for you! Oh, and it could be gluten-free too!

Le Daily Syrien

  • Restaurant Type: Vegan Friendly
  • Serves: Middle Eastern cuisine

This little gem of a spot dishes out flavorful Middle Eastern food in a cozy atmosphere, and Le Daily Syrien also has a few stop and shop items.

Falafels and hummus abound at this tiny eatery where the regulars rave about the freshness of the vegetables, and the light flaky wraps.

It’s really a to go spot with very limited seating. Quick service and good prices are a big plus. Aubergine stew, tabbouleh, falafel, and courgette dip all dazzle on the veggie platter.

Vegan Paris Wrap-up

Well, as you can see Paris truly is a vegan heaven. There are simply too many options to choose from if you’re on a short trip to the City of Light. So, be sure to go hungry and choose carefully!

Bon Appetit!

Tien Hiang and VG are great littles finds <3 Definitely on my favs list. Thank you for compiling this!

On the other hand Aujourd'hui Demain is really not worth the hype. I found great reviews, went a couple of time and it was a such a let down. The desserts are oversaturated with sugar, tacos are bland and the chef still calls himself South American...? Smh. Also, dirty kitchen and tables so definitely not as appealing as theire IG makes it up to be. BIG NONO : the chef wans't using gloves????????

Randi Delano, Creator and Owner, Veggie Visa

Thursday 30th of July 2020

Hi Melissa, thank you for the comment :) I'm glad the list is helpful to you. While we don't agree about Aujourd'hui Demain I hope you enjoy the rest of the places on the list. I highly recommend Le Faitout. That vegan cheese...mmmm. Also, tacos are not from South America so I'm not sure what you mean. :P

Kate

Thursday 5th of March 2020

I'm surprised you didn't include Wholywood which is one of my favourite spots in town now. Best prices for best quality and quantity too! And I think Vietnam in Paris is no longer a vegan or vegetarian restaurant from a recent change in ownership and menu redesign

Randi Delano, Creator and Owner, Veggie Visa

Thursday 5th of March 2020

Hi Kate! Thanks for the comment. I've never even heard of Wholywood, which makes me very, very sad. I will absolutely try it next time! Thanks for letting me know about Vietnam in Paris too. What a shame! :(

Shannon
