Looking for a place to enjoy a nutritious and delicious meal? Here’s what our herbivorous experts say in this summer’s selection of veggie eateries in Eastern Paris. Bon appetit!
Les bols d’Antoine
With a terrace located by the Belvedere of the Parc de Belleville, Les bols d’Antoine is a great place to sit and enjoy an outdoor meal in the summer, all with a great view of the city nearby. The restaurant offers a delightful menu in which fresh protein bowls are the star. This small and pleasant eatery is one of our top recommendations in the 20th arrondissement! In addition, the staff of the restaurant prepared close to 6,000 meals for medical workers and vulnerable people during the confinement — now is a great occasion to say thank you!

Just a few steps from Père Lachaise cemetery, this veggie and vegan restaurant serves dishes by the chef Christiane Delpech, who formerly worked in the kitchens of Alain Passard’s iconic and vegetable-oriented restaurant Arpège. Given offers colorful and healthy dishes like gratin, quiche, vegan bowls, soups, and veggie burgers. The menu varies daily depending on the available produce. Remember to BYOB — bring your own bowl — if you order takeout, as Given Cantine has a zero waste goal!

You’ll find this inconspicuous vegan café on the boulevard between the metro stations Chemin Vert and Saint-Sébastien Froissart. The first thing passersby will notice is not the words “patisserie végétale” on their sign, but the gorgeous array of desserts that line the window display: cakes, madeleines, macarons, millefeuilles, and more! This spot stole our hearts with their deeply savory bites and decadent sweet treats.

With their refined plates and excellent service, this cantine bio is a plant based experience that will not disappoint. We particularly adored the packed with umami vegan sushi and their savory curries and couscous, all of which came in copious portions. Their desserts were equally as satisfying. It’s a great spot to enjoy a meal — especially on their newly installed terrace!

Toutofu, a local restaurant based in the 11th arrondissement, specializes in tofu based dishes, all with local and organic ingredients! Their plates are plentiful and packed with protein and flavour. Here, you’ll find Asian dishes; our favorites were the Mapo ramen and la marmite. Be sure to try their gluten free desserts, too!
