I'm going back for a weekend in mid-Oct for some L'as Du Fallafel and Berthillion. Anything new over there?

I'm going to be spending a couple of days in Paris at the beginning of April, and this thread has proven very useful! There are a couple of places that have popped up on Happy Cow that haven't been mentioned here (that I remember, anyway): does anyone know anything about Cafe Ginger, Brasserie Lola or My Kitch'n?

Also, any recommendations for ice cream and breakfasts (on weekdays)? And is everything at L'as du falafel vegan?

I've been to Cafe Ginger and My Kitch'n when it was in the market. My Kitch'n was a bit out of the way IMO, and not worth the trip. The day I went there wasn't much on the menu. I loved Cafe Ginger. It's a tiny restaurant so seating could be an issue. They were really nice and I thought the food was great. They brought me a plate with a savoury tart, and a selection of different salads.
I had a fantastic sorbet at Berthillon. I'm pretty sure it was vegan but can't confirm that, just ask them if you go. I never made it to L'as du Falafel, the lineup was so long and didn't feel like waiting. Hope you have a great time!

Brilliant, thanks for the advice! I'll add Cafe Ginger to the list, and try to check out the sorbet.

The falafel special and all of the regular falafels are vegan. They have schwarma and so everything is not vegan. But if you ask for a falafel or a falafel special, those are vegan. The special falafel is amazing.

Some Cafe Ginger and My Kitch'n are newer, and this list is a few years old, but mostly still current.

The sorbets at Berthillon are vegan. The dark chocolate is like heaven. I also love the Mango and the Cassis. The coconut one is not vegan, fyi.

Going out to breakfast isn't really a French thing, so options are limited. Your best bet is to get a fresh baguette from your local boulangerie, and eat it with jam and provomel yogurt and muesli by the side of the Seine!

I like the idea of breakfasting by the Seine. Thanks for the help!

Great tip! I rarely go to the 15th, but will have to make a trip for this.

i've actually been pleasantly surprised by the number of cafes i've seen that happen to be veg friendly - near where I am, anyway (I'm staying in the 10th.) Lots of nice "bio" cafe's near Canal Saint Martin.. and in the 9th.

I enjoyed that place too.

I've written a couple of blog posts about the good food I had in Paris. I'm dying for a return trip now!

Any vegan croissants or pain such chocolat in Paris? Gentle Gourmet no longer has them (but they do have macarons), and Un Monde Vegan occasionally gets them in (but not sure the source). Any other places have vegan pastries?

I think the Loving Hut used to sell packaged ones, maybe check there?

At the Raspail Market (the organic one on Sunday) one of the bakery vendors had a croissant vegetal, vegan and pretty tasty after a few minutes getting toasted. There is also a bread vendor that has gorgeous fruit and nut breads, if you're into that sort of thing - loaves and petit pain rolls. Not croissant, but good. The crepe and galette stand, too - the galettes are vegan (last I checked.)

I'll keep thinking!

The loss of the Gentle Gourmet chocolate croissants is a travesty. Those were so good. I haven't seen any recently. I'm also sad to only recently discover that Chennai Dosai closed--I was planning to go there tonight!

I just picked up more Vegusto cheese from Un Monde Vegan--the shop seems to be doing very well, which is good news.

There seems to have been an explosion of vegan food in Paris. I'm seeing the word spelled out more and more. I remember when, even five years ago, no one knew what "vegetalien" meant.

There is now a Krishna Bhavan (not all vegan, but all veg--lots of vegan options) in the 5th just across the river south of Notre Dame. The dosas are great (the location in the 10th is better, but this is good if you are in the neighbourhood).

Bio c Bon stores have popped up all over, and there's a huge one at Pigalle.

Burgers seem to be the new rage: Hank's, East Side Burgers....

I went to a show at Le Cent Quatre and there was a vegan ice cream cart with a dozen options!

i'm headed off to Paris tomorrow for 5 days. any updates on the vegan croissant/pain au chocolat front?

i think i've got a pretty good feel for the most veg-friendly places, but i'll be there with my omnivorous parents, and my mom in particular has made a big deal of how she wants to eat FRENCH FOOD (i.e. heavy on the meat/butter/cream, obvs). most of the omni-but-good-vegan-options listings on Happycow are Asian places, which isn't really going to fly. can anyone recommend some places that serve more traditionally French food but are decent at accommodating vegans, or any particular dishes to look for or request at the kind of restaurants my mom will want to go to?

ETA: also, any places to stop for lunch on a Sunday day trip to Versailles and Giverny. Happycow didn't turn up much, and i think it might be easier to just bring my own lunch with me.

I just looked into this thread again, because I am going back to Paris in two months (after 3.5 years, but only for a few days). It feels as if I don't know the (vegan) city anymore, so much change and new stuff... This will be fun :-)

I'm going to Cannes for the film festival in May. I'll be there for work and have a pretty hectic schedule so I'm looking for recommendations on places to stock up on food that I can keep/make at our apartment. So any tips on markets where I can find some vegan stuff would be much appreciated!
