Sitting in a Parisian café, sipping fine coffee, and enjoying fresh croissants and jam—does it get any more French than that? No, we didn’t think so. If this sounds right up your alley, head over to Cloud Cakes. The adorable, all-vegan coffee shop is sure to satisfy your French fantasies and cravings.
What a perfect French breakfast we've had today, including the best croissants of my life (vegan or not!) You should really visit @cloudcakesfr when in Paris, cute place with amazing baked goods! #vegan #whatveganseat #vegansofig #veganparis #cloudcakes #vegantravel #vegantraveling #veganreisen #vegancroissant #petitdejeuner #croissant #igerssalzburg #totallyveg #totallyvegblog #allaboutveganfood #shareyourveganfood

A good coffee shop is a must, no matter where you are in the world. Luckily, Paris has Comptoir Veggie, a 100 percent vegan coffee shop and juice bar. Order a slice of the marbled matcha white chocolate loaf to go with your golden latte. Trust us—you won’t be disappointed.

This hip all-vegan eatery combines “the finesse of French gastronomy with an ethical and ecological dimension,” providing patrons with one heck of a delicious meal. Choose from menu options like homemade faux gras, “cheese” fondue, raviolis, “Le Tofu,” and mouthwatering desserts, like this strawberry sponge cake:

Plant-based and gourmet—that’s what you’ll find at Le Potager de Charlotte. Everything on the menu is simple yet elegant, delicious, and oh-so-worthy of an Instagram share. The avocado “egg” starter is killer, and you won’t regret ordering the Chickpea & Rice Pancake with cashew cream:

You can’t go to Paris and not gorge on some delicious vegan crème brûlée. To satisfy your sweet tooth with a traditional yet plant-based French dessert, check out Le Potager du Marais. The menu, which is entirely vegan, also features soups, salads, yummy entrées—like this smoked tofu dish—fruit cocktails, coffee, tea, and more.

Although it’s a bit far from Paris’ city center, a visit to Season Square is well worth the trip. The menu, which features all-vegan ingredients, includes soups, gourmet burgers on brioche buns, healthy bowls, and delicious desserts, as well as hot and cold coffee and tea beverages, like this delectable-looking latte:

If a 100 percent vegan afternoon tea in a palace-like hotel in Paris sounds like a good time, you’ll want to check out Shangri-La Hotel. According to its website, “Five o’clock tea at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris is the most vegan, natural and gourmet afternoon tea in the capital.”

You may not get super powers by visiting Super Vegan, but you can get a Super Kebab—the fast-food joint’s flagship menu item. According to the eatery’s website, “The Great Kebab [is] a vegan kebab that [has everything a meat] kebab [does], except animal suffering!”

If you’re looking for a cozy eatery serving delicious vegan food, look no further than VégéBowl. The Asian-inspired menu features mouthwatering dishes, such as mapo tofu, vegetable stew, and curry casserole. This grilled vegetable vermicelli salad with tofu “chicken” looks pretty tasty, too:

Did someone say “pain au chocolat”? That’s right—you can have your French pastries and eat them, too, thanks to VG Pâtisserie. Choose from delicious baked goods, like chocolate treats, Orange Chocolate Croissants, and the “cruffin”—a cross between a croissant and a muffin:

Animals have personalities. They play, learn, and think, and they don’t deserve to be served for dinner—in Paris or anywhere else.
