Wild & The Moon
Wild & The Moon is clearly my favourite when it comes to plant-based foods in Paris. They have spread out throughout the city with a total of six restaurants. The most recent one was opened at Saint-Honoré and is their Flagship Store, offering the greatest variety of items and having the biggest space of them all. It’s the most beautiful location I believe. When it comes to their foods, they offer the most delicious juices, plant mylks and smoothies, always introducing a little bit of superfood magic in blue and black colours to vibrant pinks and greens. Furthermore, you can find the most delicious Chaga Hot Chocolate or Charcoal Latte to enjoy next to a piece of freshly baked banana bread. My favourite item on their menu though is the Blue Magic Bowl. Basically, banana ice cream with added blue algae and a topping of house-made granola. One of the best granola out there, if you ask me. They also offer delicious hearty dishes that vary day to day. Oh, and let’s not forget the gluten-free sandwhich with vegan cream cheese. A winner. Hence, if you find yourself in Paris, this one is a must.
Love Juice Bar
Do you love banana ice cream? Well, Love Juice Bar has really nailed it when it comes to the creation of their bowls. The ice cream is always the fluffiest out their and their range of flavours from peanut butter, matcha, chocolate to strawberry ice cream bowls are just delicious. My favourite bowl to have is the Salted Caramel Bowl with extra almond butter on top. It’s pure bliss, trust me. Their place is super tiny, nevertheless, I always feel so welcome. It’s a lovely space to work in tugged away in a very Parisienne street near Le Marais. I love Love Juice Bar and I am sure you will, too.
I am in love with this beautiful & calm space. Café Pinson is so welcoming and cosy. Hence, once I sat down, I didn’t want to get up again. Their food is more than delicious. You truly need to try their plant-based cream cheese (my non-vegan friend loved it as well) and if you like dessert as much as I do, the Fondant Au Chocolat is a must. I feel like this could be the perfect date night spot but a calming evening out with your girlfriends is also very appropriate. In the end, I am definitely looking forward to going back to try some more of their dishes. They all looked so beautiful on the other guests’ tables.
Ob-La-Di is simply a very cool space to be in. There is definitely some attention for detail going on. Their Chai Latte is also one of the best ones to be found in Paris. My friend also told me she had the best Avocado Toast there. It apparently was the creamiest spread and the crunchiest thick bread out there to enjoy. I adore their coconut yoghurt with granola topping. Such a nice thing to have for breakfast and brunch.
(Vegan) Grocery Stores
If you are looking to stock up on vegan treats, fruits and veggies or anything else your vegan pantry needs. I highly suggest you, to check out Naturalia, an organic grocery store, and Mon Epicerie Paris, a vegan grocery store, to fill up your pantry. For the most delicious ice creams and cheeses, you can also go to the latter or you drop by at Jay & Joy. Everything they offer is made right in the store. You can even watch the preparation of the cheeses and ice creams through a glass window.
Exki is basically your place to be when you are in a rush and in the need for something simple on the go. They offer a lot of pre-packaged vegan options as well as hot drinks made with plant mylk or Yogi Tea. I always opt for their fruit offers to fill up on those vitamins.
Atelier Nubio is a concept store offering juices, soups, rice-porridge and hot drinks next to granola and superfood powders. They also have a beautiful selection of everything the spiritual heart, yogi or wellness lover might desire. Just saying. Even though this part is not really food related.
