I agree that the this cafe has a nice atmosphere and the staff are nice, but the food – except for the fresh juices perhaps, is a serious disappointment. I had a grape and almond gazpacho that had no taste and a terrible consistency. The salad also was thoroughly uninspired. It had an egg that had probably been boiled for half an hour a couple of days ago. Don’t get me wrong, I really like vegan food but I don’t see why one should settle for a tasteless meal clearly prepared with not enough attention or love just because it’s vegan or vegetarian.
If you like good food, vegetarian or not, try something else.

Another vegetarian restaurant in Paris. Hooray! Another vegetarian restaurant in Paris… that is really good. Double hooray! Thanks for the heads-up on this place. Looking forward to spending countless hours there. C’est bien!

ADORE the photos + the one of the stool is so precious. Have to go on my next trip to Paris. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

Thanks for flagging this place Diane. I’ve been seriously disappointed with the quality of vegetarian restaurants here in Paris so far (the food served always makes me feel like I’ve stepped back into the 70s!), but this place sounds like a leap into the present! Will definitely be trying it out.

Sounds like a fab little cafe!…I’ll have to take a trip there. The food looks and sounds delicious! Love the photo of the little stool!…xv

Great article, Diane! I loved Cafe Pinson–the environment, staff, food. Now that you reminded me of that, I want to go back as soon as possible 🙂

Great article and even greater photographs of one of the coziest cafes in Paris. I’ve met friends here and am never disappointed in the food or their juices.
