The best vegan restaurants in Paris

Paris is passionate about plant-based food! Find out all about the best vegan eateries in the French capital before your next trip.

Parisians have embraced plant-based food in a huge way in recent years, and there is now a great choice of vegan restaurants, bistros and cafés across the city. Whether you fancy a cake, fast food or a gourmet meal there is a vegan option around most street corners.

It’s not all sweet potatoes, smoothies and soy either – vegan food can be delicious as well as good for our waistline and wallet.  Here are ten of the best places to eat vegan food in Paris.

Jah Jah By Le Tricycle

The owners of this small vegan and gluten free restaurant started selling their Afro-Caribbean inspired food from a tricycle on the streets of Paris. Jah Jah By Le Tricycle is so unassuming it looks like it could be just a grocery store from the outside, and it has a casual vibe and easy going charm. You might have to share a table, but the food is great – the staples are burgers, hotdogs, French toast and a range of fusion bowls.  There is also a large selection of alternative milks.

Bodhi Vegan

Another favourite for fans of vegan cuisine in the 10th  arrondissement, Bodhi Vegan serves Vietnamese and south-eastern Asian dishes. Customer favourites include the fake tempura prawn and pork, caramelised ‘chicken’, stuffed tofu and pancakes. The menu is extensive and you can eat well for a decent price at Bodhi Vegan. The nearest Metro station is Colonel Fabien.

Le Potager du Marais

A classic looking Parisian bistro from the outside, Le Potager du Marais specialises in vegan versions of French classics. Very popular with locals, tourists and YouTubers alike, it is worth booking a table in advance. House favourites are the French onion soup and the to-die-for desserts, including a crème brûlée that is the talk of the Marais district! There is always a buzzing atmosphere here and the prices are reasonable.

Le Potager de Charlotte - Rennequin

Le Potager de Charlotte is one of the most well-respected meat and dairy-free gourmet restaurants in the French capital. Brothers David and Adrien Valentin are the creators of this family business named in tribute to their mother, and in just a few short years have made it one of the best places to eat high quality vegan food in Paris. Their menu changes with the seasons and they try to source all their ingredients from local organic farms and farmers’ markets. They also have another restaurant in the 9th district.

Sol Semilla

Sol Semilla is more than just a vegan restaurant. It is an ethos and a culture with superfoods at its heart. Sol Semilla works in partnership with hand-picked producers whose values and commitment to sustainability matches its own. Sol Semilla produces a vast range of superfoods, superfruits, raw cocoa and superalgaes that are on sale at outlets across Paris, while the restaurant near the Canal St Martin in the 10th district does a roaring trade in soups, cereals and superfood bowls.

Wild & The Moon - Charlot

Wild & the Moon is a Parisian phenomenon – make that phenomenom-nom! 

Only founded in 2016, Wild & the Moon outlets are popping up all over the capital. They are the places where healthy Parisians want to hang out as well as eat. The restaurants are open from breakfast till late seven days a week, whether you want to eat in, take away, click and collect or order a delivery. People love their cold-pressed juices, tasty desserts, super bowls and snacks.

Land & Monkeys - Pernety

If you are ever on the Left Bank and fancy something sweet and vegan, head to the Land & Monkeys bakery café in Pernety. They have literally cornered the market (all but one of their outlets are on street corners) in plant-based pâtisseries. Customers come back time and again to indulge in their vegan cakes, quiches, sandwiches, breads and pastries. Paris is a land of Land & Monkeys – there are five of its dog-friendly cafés across the city, with four on the Right Bank.

85 Rue Raymond Losserand, 75014 Paris

VG Pâtisserie

A contender for the crown held by Land & Monkeys, VG Pâtisserie is an independent vegan bakery and café. Customers adore the pastries and cakes, especially its signature macaroons. The VG stands for vegetable but could easily just be ‘very good’.

It’s about halfway between Place de la Bastille and the Père Lachaise cemetery, the famous resting places of Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf. You will have ‘no regrets’ coming through ‘the doors’ of VG Pâtisserie! 

123 Boulevard Voltaire, 75011 Paris

Hank Vegan Burger – Rochechouart

Vegans can still enjoy fantastic fast food, and vegan burgers are always a popular option when you need a really good guilt-free feed. Hank have a couple of restaurants in Paris and two more in Lille and Lyon, but there is actually a chain-free, chilled out atmosphere about ordering your food and eating here. People love the plant-based patties, vegan nuggets and choice of toppings. The ‘Sergeant Pepper’ burger is something else! 

(By the way, Hank stands for ‘Have a nice Karma’.)

8 Rue Marguerite de Rochechouart, 75009 Paris

42 Degrés

Raw vegan food is increasing in popularity and some chefs can still create wonderful meat and dairy free dishes without cooking anything! 42 Degrés in the 9th arrondissement was the first and still one of the only raw vegan restaurants in Paris. It offers diners a high end eating experience, so expect to pay more here. The specialities include its portobello mushroom burger, vegan cheese platter and lemon cake. The portions might be on the small side but they look amazing!
