By Fredrica Syren:

Last week we were in France, in Cannes first, and then took the train to Paris. I must admit I was a bit worried about finding vegan food in France. It was a bit of a struggleIn Cannes, but luckily we always stay in an Airbnb, so we have the option to cook our own food. There are lots of bio stores — organic stores with a wide selection of vegan foods — all over France. However, part of the fun of traveling is eating out occasionally. In Cannes, to my kids’ delight, we did find an ice cream shop that had many vegan sorbet selections. In Paris, however, there are more selections of vegan and other restaurants advertising vegan options.

We ate brunch twice at Le Pain Quotidien, which had lots (and I mean lots) of vegan options including vegan pain au chocolate and cakes. One morning, I ate a vegan brunch plate that included salad, two kinds of hummus, bread, lentil salad and yogurt parfait asa side. My son Noah was happy to find smoothie bowls that he enjoyed. A plus is that staffs are wonderful and friendly and very helpful.

We also ate two times at Indian restaurants because, well, thats usually an easy place to find vegan options. And the fact is we love Indian foodHankBurgersis a vegan restaurant that serves as both a hamburger place and a pizza restaurant. I should say that the Hank burger that we tired is ok but nothing special. It is just a fast-food restaurant, so expectations should be low. The food was warm and cheap, so thatwasa bonus.

Other restaurants that have vegan options are listed below:
