13 Best Vegan And Vegetarian Restaurants In Paris
1. Vegetarian Restaurant 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.

4. Le Potager de Charlotte
12 rue Louise Emilie de la Tour d’Auverge, 75009, Paris and 21 rue Rennequin, 75017, Paris
What a delight to have a scrumptious lunch at Le Potager de Charlotte, a vegan restaurant in Paris. It was the owner Adrien Valentin who explained the dishes to us and took our order. When I asked if there was butter in the creamy mashed potatoes, he answered, “Surtout non,” and then slipped in a little English, “Hell, no!” Three of us shared several vegan dishes with sesame tofu, chickpea pancakes and those creamy mashed potatoes being the favourites. The sauces and combination of flavours were outstanding.
Add Le Potager de Charlotte to your list of vegan restaurants in Paris to try. It’s one you’ll be returning to for a healthy plant-based meal!

Stop by this adorable vegan café in Paris for breakfast or lunch. Avocado toast, grilled cheese (vegan), and bowls are always good options – right?

9. 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.

11. 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.

With six locations in Paris, Land & Monkeys makes finding vegan baked goods easily accessible. Striving high for excellent flavour, Land & Monkeys makes baguettes, brioches, quiche, and pâtisseries that will definitely please the vegan in the group.
