Paris – Eiffel Tower

According to recent data found on Happycow, there are approximately more than 100 restaurants offering vegan or vegetarian cuisine in Paris which is two times more compared to Montreal. As foodies, we are always excited to try various places each time we eat out! If you plan to visit Paris this fall, here are 5 restaurants for vegan food lovers to add on your list.

1. Cantine Soya Bio
vegan food

Cantine Soya Bio

Happy birthday to Cantine Soya Bio which celebrates its 10th anniversary on October 27th! Located at walking distance from the Canal St. Martin in the 11th district of Paris, Cantine Soya Bio is a trendy place recently renovated and well integrated into the vibe of its neighbourhood.

When you enter at Cantine Soya Bio, you enjoy a world cuisine freely revisited, vegan, and mainly gluten-free (more than 90%) made from labeled organic products. In addition, they have a large choice of delightful vegan pastries and serve a buffet brunch on weekends. We love the freshness of their dishes and each bite is a pleasure!

2. Cloud Cakes
grilled cheese, potatoes, and salad

Cloud Cakes Paris

Cloud Cakes, the name itself is appealing isn’t it? Cloud Cakes is a vegan coffee shop located in Sentier area close to well known Forum des Halles. The idea behind Cloud Cakes came when owners Aelita and Olivier mixed their passion for coffee with vegan pastry.

We visited this cozy coffee shop for brunch and ordered the dish of the day. We ate up a tasty roasted vegetable grilled cheese with well seasoned potatoes. When time came to order desserts we were already full but we will be back very soon to taste one of their delicious pastries!

3. Tien Hiang
pad thai, nems and soup

Tien Hiang Paris

Opened since 1999, Tien Hiang is located close to Place de la Republique monument in the 10th district of Paris. The restaurant offers a South-East Asian cuisine inspired from Vietnam, Thailand, China, and Malaysia.

Most of the dishes are prepared with a base of textured soy protein which results in a large variety of choices on the menu. Usually we order several dishes and share together. Our favorites include the following: pad thai, nems, and coconut milk soup. We often visit Tien Hiang during lunch time to get a chance to find a table easily. Note that the restaurant does not take reservation so it’s on a first come, first served basis.

4. Brasserie 2EME Art
cesar salad, wine and kebab

Brasserie 2eme Art

Located in the heart of Paris, Brasserie 2eme Art is the second restaurant of the owners of Brasserie Lola. Even if there is no specific mention on the menu that the food is vegan, Brasserie 2eme art does not use animal sourced products.

The restaurant features a comfort food cuisine such as pizza, burger, and pasta. We visited Brasserie 2eme Art several times and were always able to find a seat pretty quickly despite of the crowd. The burger and the kebab are two must-try but if you prefer a healthy choice opt for the Cesar salad!

5. Shangri-La
vegan afternoon tea, pastries and tea

Shangri-La Hotel Paris -Vegan Afternoon Tea

Let us introduce Shangri-La Hotel Paris located in one of the most upscale district of the city of lights. Can you believe that this 5 stars hotel offers a vegan afternoon tea? Launched in 2016 at La Bauhinia restaurant, the vegan afternoon tea is a logical follow-up to the success of their “100% Green Dinners”.

We don’t know where to start to describe our incredible gourmet experience at Shangri-La Hotel! From the simplicity of a tart to the sophistication of great classics, such as Mont-Blanc and Calisson, the chef respects the essential British tradition by including scones and shortbreads. Each pastry tastes like heaven accompanied by a selection of delightful ethical teas.

With the upcoming Spring season, La Société Montreal French Bistro located in Loews Hotel Vogue welcomes you with a new brunch menu elaborated by Parisian Chef Gilles Tolen who made his debut at well-known establishment Café de la Paix in 2009.

For those who are familiar with Montreal foodie scene, Chef Gilles Tolen created two menus at Decca77 as Executive Chef and was also involved in culinary events such as Le Chop, Cuisine du Quebec and MTLàTable.

The new brunch menu offers revisited classics such as Eggs Benedict, various types of Omelet, Mimosa cocktails and more. Moreover, the menu allows you to plunge into La Société spirit with fresh Oysters, Champagne, Tartars with croûtons and lunch plates.

I particularly appreciate the fact that the menu offers healthy and varied choices. Even as a vegetarian, you will easily find something that fit your need without having to ask for special treatment. With my sweet tooth, I chose the Belgian waffles (maple syrup comes in supplement), the Mount Royal granola bowl (proud Montrealer) and the Moulin Rouge cocktail ( Paris is always on my mind).
