1. Vegetarian Restaurants In Paris: Ora
12 rue Philippe de Girard, 75010, Paris
Walk into the magical courtyard of Ora, one of the vegetarian restaurants in Paris, and the setting will sweep you away. It’s a natural and quiet oasis in Paris, perfect for diving into some healthy plant-based food.
Grab a tray and line up cafeteria-style. But it’s no ordinary cafeteria. It’s cafeteria-style à la Paris.
See what’s available on the small chalkboards and order as you go.
We ordered the burrata. Like an artist at work, the chef created our dish before our eyes. He swished the sauce around, placed the marinated burrata on top, sliced it open, added the tomato filling, and covered it in green shoots. Then, he carefully slid the creation onto our tray. Such flare at this vegetarian restaurant in Paris.
What followed was risotto and white asparagus. Also served with panache.
The dessert was irresistible. A grilled nectarine with vanilla mousse, a strawberry, and mint leaves.
This was accompanied by a fabulous ginger-pear juice and a glass of wine.
This vegetarian restaurant in Paris definitely made a great impression – the atmosphere and food were top-notch.

2. Vegan Restaurants In Paris: Kapunka
4 rue de Damiette, 75002, Paris
Let’s start by saying that my daughter and I agreed this was the best Thai food we had eaten since being in Thailand.
At the 6 Kapunka restaurants in Paris, found in the 2eme, 10eme, 14eme, and 17eme, there are choices for everyone. The pad Thai, for example, can be ordered as vegetarian, vegan, or with chicken, beef or shrimp.
We happened upon Kapunka Vegan which was incredible. The menu was completely vegan with fresh, flavourful plant-based choices. We had the papaya salad with spicy peanut dressing and green curry with tofu, vegetables, and jasmine rice. Eating the green curry was like stepping through a portal to Thailand.
We finished off the delectable meal with mango sticky rice, bringing back great memories of Thai street food.

3. Vegan Coffee Shop Paris: Cloud Cakes
6 rue Mandar, 75002, Paris
I was meeting my French prof and his wife for dinner, both vegan. I hopped on a Velib and headed off to the second arrondissement. It was my first visit to Cloud Cakes and I was thrilled to see the choice of patisseries available. The vegan cheesecake was a huge hit!
Stop by this vegan café in Paris for breakfast or lunch. Avocado toast, grilled cheese (vegan), and bowls are always good options – right?
A second location of this vegan coffee shop in Paris is in the 9eme at 32 rue Notre-Dame de Lorette

4. L’ As Du Fallafel
34 rue des Rosiers, 75004, Paris,
You’ll easily find l’ As du Fallafel by the queue on rue des Rosiers. There is always a lineup except on Fridays evenings and Saturdays when l’ As du Fallafel is closed.
The lineup moves quickly at this iconic Middle Eastern restaurant in Paris. Before you know it, a soft pita bursting with crispy round falafels, homemade hummus, red cabbage, and grilled eggplant is in your hands. And, spicy sauce if so desired. Your mouth starts watering, immediately.
Grab a famous pita, the ultimate street food in Paris, and then find a bench in the nearby Joseph Migneret garden. Your taste buds will thank you.
If you’re in le Marais with meat-eating friends, the lamb shawarma comes highly recommended as do the grilled kebabs.
L’as du Fallafel is the perfect stop before spending some time exploring le Marais. These 23 things to do in le Marais are a great place to start.

If you looking for plentiful, plant-based cuisine, la Maison Nomade is the restaurant for you. This restaurant by Canal St Martin has a menu that will appease vegetarians and vegans. Maison Nomade is a bright and welcoming space perfect to grab a coffee, work a little, and meet with friends over a meal… and it’s also perfect for dining solo if you’re travelling in Paris alone. Try one of the bowls, or a burger!
If you have a bit of time to spend before catching a train from the Gare de l’Est, Maison Nomade is a two-minute walk from the station.

6. Vegan Paris: Jah Jah By Tricycle
11 rue des Petites Ecuries, 75010, Paris
On the menu, you’ll find hot vogs, burgers, and three kinds of bowls – hot, raw and cold. My daughter and I decided to share a hot bowl and cauliflower wings.
The hot bowl full of veggies was a mix of delightful Afro-Caribbean-inspired flavours. Each part of the dish had a different flavour which complimented the others. It was a little hard to share this delectable hot bowl, only because it was so tasty!
The breaded BBQ cauliflower wings were a generous portion and a good addition to the lunchtime meal.
Have a pressed juice, while sitting at the communal tables and tapping your toes to a little Bob Marley.
Vegan Restaurants in Paris: Jah Jah by Tricycle
22 rue des Ecouffes, Paris, 4th arrondissement
Are pitas your thing? Swing by tiny Miznon for a pita meal. Think grilled eggplant, tahini and spicy sauce. Vegetarians in Paris will swoon.
Meat-eaters in the crowd will be pleased to add grilled chicken or lamb.
It’s a messy meal and oh, so delicious.
8. Vegetarian Restaurants In Paris: Cantine Primeur
4 rue Lemon, 75020, Paris
Tucked away on a quiet pedestrian street between rue Denoyz and Bd de Belleville, right in the heart of Belleville, is the tiny Cantine Primeur. I recently ate at this vegetarian restaurant in Paris and here’s what I found.
Bo bon, which is super popular in Paris, was my choice for lunch. Bo bun, made with rice noodles, raw vegetables, mint and peanuts, is a light and fresh dish. The bo bun at Cantine Primeur had great flavour, due to their homemade sauce. The superstars of the dish were the crunchy vegetarian nems (spring rolls) sitting on top. They didn’t last long. Dive in with your chopsticks – or as they are called in French, baguettes!
The dish of the day at this vegetarian restaurant in Paris was lentils, rice, and grilled vegetables. Also very tasty!
The cheesecake was highly recommended and was a winner! Made with coconut and cashew cream, the cheesecake sits on a hazelnut and date base! It was truly delicious.
