42 degrés

icon-location-pin Poissonnière

The name of unorthodox vegan restaurant 42 Degrés refers to the fact that none of your food will be cooked at temperatures surpassing – you guessed it – 42 degrees. Go for a ‘burger’, for example, and you’ll be presented with a pair of mushrooms encasing a steak made from sunflower seeds, flax seeds, spinach and tomato. And it works. Really well. But with high à la carte menu prices, we say go for the lunchtime set menu.

Bob's Kitchen

icon-location-pin 3rd arrondissement

At vegetarian canteen Bob's Kitchen, everything is organic, healthy and absolutely beautiful. This small cafe-restaurant offers salads, soups, bagels and futomakis as well as its trademark, vitamin-crammed "veggie stew" – a big, beautiful bowl of vegetables, seeds, rice and guacamole – and the various vegan milk smoothies are great too. The menu changes regularly depending on what they buy at the market. With a welcoming decor and pleasingly low prices to boot, this is a vegetarian winner.

Hank Pizza

icon-location-pin Arts et Métiers

They promised they would and at last, Hank Restaurant have opened their 100% vegan, wallet-friendly pizza joint. From sublime fresh tomato pizza with smoked salt, vegan ricotta, basil and pine nuts to the intensely flavourful truffle variety with potatoes, rocket, truffle cream and mushrooms – you can’t lose. And their desserts make for a dream vegan feast finale, with 100% organic sorbets, gooey cookies and chocolate mousse that tastes like actual chocolate.

L'Arpège

icon-location-pin Invalides

Assuming you can swallow an exceptionally high bill – it's €42 for a potato starter, for example – chances are you'll have a spectacular time at chef Alain Passard's Left Bank establishment. His attempt to pare down and simplify the haute cuisine experience seems a misstep at first – the chrome-armed chairs look like something from the former DDR – but then the food arrives, like our starter of tiny smoked potatoes served with a horseradish mousseline, and we’re absolutely enchanted.

Le Potager de Charlotte

icon-location-pin Pigalle

At this healthy vegan eatery, everything from produce-sourcing to presentation is designed to reduce damage to the planet – and to your body. The creativity of each dish is so delightful that we take pleasure in identifying and analysing the diverse ingredients within. However the freshness (and rareness) of the produce and all the kitchen work involved come at a price – the ‘Potager’s’ only drawback. Still, if you’re looking to eat healthily and well, lunch or dinner, this is a great vegan option.

Sol Semilla

icon-location-pin Canal Saint-Martin

This jolly vegan spot makes good use of vitamin-crammed super foods – copaiba, urucum, acai, acerola, purple corn – creating beautiful dishes bursting with taste and originality. Delicious soups and salads abound, alongside flavourful juices and extraordinary, healthy desserts. Sometimes the creations may seem a little strange, but you’ll develop a taste for Sol Semilla’s culinary surprises. Plus, all of their natural ingredients are also sold in the adjoining grocery store.
