Top 5 Places to Eat in Paris

The most memorable eateries of our recent trip to Paris

Paris is definitely a great place to dine as a vegan or vegetarian. There are so many great places but we only had a few days.

Pistachio Macaron – Lemon and Green Meringue Tartlet

We were very satisfied with our dining experiences but if you are a vegan or vegetarian you cannot leave Paris without visiting these places.

Everything else is up to taste, style and cost but theses five eateries are an absolute must!

VG Patisserie

123 Bd Voltaire, 75011 Paris, France

VG Patisserie is the place of dreams. Cute, charming restaurant with a small amount of seating inside and out. We tried one large macaron, two delicious cakes, and later a piece of flan to go. There were many cookies and other savory and sweet delectables as far as the eye could see and it was tough to make a decision.

The Mulder – Vanilla Cream Cheese and Mango Compote

If you’ve been vegan for a long time you know how incredible it is to find sweets like this. Although my son and I eat eggs and cheese on occasion, my husband is still a strick vegan with a love for dessert. So, our visit to VG Patisserie was an emotional highlight of our trip.

TatinQuoi – Apple, Almond Vanilla Mousse

Mori Café

2 Rue des Taillandiers, 75011 Paris, France

Another wonderful spot we found last minute. This was definitely the stand out family favorite as my son ate the entire tofu tapa and most of the soy protein and rice bowl. The ramen and soup bowls were delicious. My husband and I both agreed that we could eat this ramen weekly.

The Mori Café is not very big so if you can’t get in right away there are many charming shops nearby to browse while you wait for a table. As well, the staff are friendly and very well informed about the menu. There is also the cutest tip jar caddy? I’m not sure how you describe it but you place your coins on its plate and it swallows them – you just have to see it.

Aujourd’hui Demain

42 Rue du Chemin Vert, 75011 Paris, France

This place is definitely a local favorite with a medium sized dining area – not huge but we did see a table of 12 in amongst the regular two and four top tables inside and out. As well, there is an extensive shopping area with many local and international vegan brands. If it’s garments you’re after they have clothes, shoes and accessories too!

The staff were friendly and the food was exquisite! Very French, fresh and tasty. I don’t like to mention vegan burgers as they are often tasty, but not very innovative or creative. However, the sauce on their burger was delicious and as complex as I needed to highly recommend.

All of the dishes were well seasoned, hearty and delicious. My son has been a bit picky lately but he devoured the mac and cheese with soy protein and faux cheese.


74 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003 Paris, France

We stumbled upon Kitchen by accident as we were on our way to try another place. It’s a hip funky spot creating mostly vegan options with some egg, cheese, and gluten free items.

There are benches in the windows,traditional tables as well as some larger communal tables – though the place is small.

Kitchen has a perfect brunch menu with plenty of fresh vegan choices for vegans and vegetarians or those who don’t need meat at every meal.

My husband had some kind of tofu and mushrooms on toast which after a dismal makeshift breakfast at the hotel – bread and a few potatoes- was just heavenly.

Wild and the Moon

25 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003 Paris, France

I was curious to try this place as it’s a plant-based chain in Paris. Although some locations are take-out only, this location was charming and cute with indoor seating. They do a lot of juices and different sweet and savory items. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was clean and fresh.

Vegan French Onion Soup at Le Potager du Marais

So there it is folks. This family’s top picks for Paris. Although we ate at some other places these were our absolute favorites. I will say Paris is a massive city and we had reservations for some other spots but ultimately ran out of time.

I’m sure we will be back in Paris at some point in the future and there are some places we will try but it’s going to be tough not to end up at these restos again.
