I haven’t yet had a chance to check out the new Gentle Gourmet cafe/bistro in the Bastille, but from what I’m hearing it is truly not to be missed. Particularly because…they have vegan breakfast croissants!

From the same team that brought us the (now closed) b&b of the same name, Gentle Gourmet opened in May serving a 100% vegan combination of French and Mediterranean food. The dishes vary with the seasons and are full of organic ingredients.

Open from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and even ‘le goûter.’ They also have a deli where you can pick up food for a quick picnic.

Our friends at VG-zone were impressed by the restaurant’s “elegance” which they say outdoes the general Parisian veg scene.

Prices are in the mid-range: entrées 9€, main courses between 12 and 16€ and desserts from 8€.
