Gentle Gourmet Café

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€.

Vivre Autrement Expo

This Friday through Monday, the Vivre Autrement expo will be taking place in the Parc Floral de Paris. The entrance fee is 7€, which includes access to all of the workshops. The workshops this year include: how to sprout, making “caviar” from sprouted grains, argan oil recipes, gardening, essential oils in cuisine, baby massage, toy making from hemp.


Of course, in addition to the workshops you can look around the 400 exhibitors in the expo. I’d really recommend visiting the stand and restaurant of  Meli-Jo, a Belgian distributor of everything sprouting and juicing: at their stand at the recent Vivez Nature salon, I had a wheat grass shot and a huge plate of raw goodness that I still think of fondly to this day.
