Came for a late lunch as we searched for a place that would cater to a vegan family member and we loved it. Solid restaurant and good service.

My family and I ate here in July 2016, but, a year later, I am still thinking about how good the raspberry and coconut macarons were! Everything we ordered was delicious. Hoping to come back one day just for the macarons (:

Whilst presentation is fabulous and the atmosphere and service pleasant, the food somehow lacks a little punch, pleasant but a shame the taste (rather bland) isn't commensurate with the presentation. Found it a little expensive too.

I went to this restaurant when I read the comments. I could not think of hamburger meatless but Mushroom hamburger is the nicest hamburger I've eaten. Small and very quiet place. Wonderful employees and not expensive Absolutely I recommend

Whether you're vegan or not, this is the place to go. The best food I have eaten in a long time (possibly ever) from start to finish. The flavours were so intense and each component was carefully thought through so they came together on the...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
