I’ve been to Paris in April and literally had the best time. First of all we were so lucky with the weather. The sun was shining the whole day and it was 30 degrees outside. Also the French lifestyle is something you want to adapt to your life immediately. Most shops and cafés open around 12pm and it seems like the French are never in a rush. It’s so cool to watch them pick up a baguette and a café au lait and just sit on a bench in a park enjoying life. I really want to integrate this way of living a little into my life. And the best part: We ate a lot of good food, which always makes me super happy. Long story short: I’d like to share three vegetarian food spots in Paris with you that I really enjoyed and loved.
51 Rue des Écoles, 75005 Paris
If you’re in for some Burgers and fries you are perfectly right here. It’s a small restaurant close to the Jardin du Luxembourg. It’s decorated very tasteful in an old factory style. They offer a great range of drinks like Gin Tonic (super good!) or homemade Lemonade. If you like burgers you will definitely find something here. It’s a little more special than in an usual Burger restaurant but this is exactly how I love it. Huge recommendation!
23 Rue des Sablons, 75116 Paris
Once you’re in Paris there is one sightseeing spot you can’t leave the city without having seen it: The Eiffel Tower. Especially at night when the sun has set. Although there are way too many people you will find some spots that are not so crowded. We decided to go there on our last evening. We wanted to bring pizza with us because of course we did!
Happiz Pizza is such a sweet spot to get a Pizza to go (and it’s just an 8-minute walk from the Jardin du Trocadéro where you can see the sparkling Eiffel Tower in a perfect way). Happiz Pizza is a great choice for vegetarians and vegans because you won’t see any meat at this place! You’ll get a menu where you can decide what you want on your pizza. Four toppings are for free and one pizza costs you 12€, which is totally normal for Paris. The owners are also super friendly and it was fun to create my own pizza. Definitely would go there again!
Thierry Meunier Boulangerie
29 Avenue Niel, 75017 Paris
I swear I tell you the truth: This was by far the most delicious chocolate croissant I EVER ate. Oh my god, I’m still dreaming about it and I regret not having bought 10 more. The boulangerie is close to the hotel we stayed at and we decided to have breakfast there on our last day. As I had French in high school (which was ages ago!) I decided to try my best and speak a little French and you know what? It worked out pretty well and I was so proud of myself. But back to the topic: We ordered two pain au chocolat and two café au lait. Of course I love my German breakfast with buns, orange juice, coffee, etc. but sometimes it’s nice to have a simple and plain breakfast. If you have a sweet tooth and look for a French breakfast spot, this is a great place!
So I really hope you will eat at least at one of those places when you’re in Paris and you enjoyed getting some inspiration where to eat when you’re in the capital city of France 🙂
Lots of Love,
