In this article, I’m not going to list restaurants where you can eat vegan. For that, you have the application Happy Cow or other. What I want to share in this article is my favourites places, for an atmosphere or for food. I have personally tested all the addresses I share in this article.
I decided to sort the addresses in order of arrival in a meal (appetizer, main course, dessert)
Aux saveurs de notre dame: a multitude of choices for a successful aperitif
Aux saveurs de notre dame
It is in the heart of the hall market that this shop is located. Alexis will welcome you and propose a multitude of creams and composition to make canapés for the aperitif.
My favourites are Artichoke Cream, Eggplant Caviar and Garlic Cream with Orange.
It also offers olives and garlic confit with different flavours. When I make hummus, I use confit garlic with basil. It gives a tasty taste. Confit garlic can also be eaten as an aperitif, like the olives that Alexis offers an impressive variety.
The most is that you can taste everything for sale. Like that no mistake in the choice. But be careful to taste too many things that will make your choice very difficult because everything is excellent.
Address: Les halles, Avignon
Opening hours: every day except Monday from 6 am to 1.30pm (2 pm at weekends)
Plus: you can park your car at the top parking, and for any purchase have a ticket of one hour discount.
Riad: Moroccan restaurant with vegan options
When we pass in front of this restaurant, we can not imagine that behind the facade hides the best Moroccan restaurant in the city. The restaurant is under a glass roof of an old building courtyard. The mixture of old stone with carpets and Moroccan paintings gives this restaurant an incomparable hidden.
This restaurant is not vegan. However, there are three starters and two vegan main courses.
For starters, you can choose from eggplant caviar, artichoke with orange or chickpea cream. Eggplant caviar is my favourite starter.
For the main course, you will have the choice between a vegetarian couscous (vegan in fact) or a tagine of vegetables. The couscous is served with chickpeas and onion confit. A true delight for the taste buds.
Beware, this restaurant is very generous in quantities so if you are two or more it is better to share the entrance.
Unfortunately, the desserts are not vegan although I think it’s hard not to be sated after the couscous. However, you can enjoy a mint tea.
Address: 17 rue Galante, Avignon
Opening hours: every day from 12h to 14h and from 19h to 22h
Plus: semolina and vegetables are unlimited with couscous.
La cantine des anges: vegan restaurant but much more!
La cantine des anges
Here is the discovery of the week that made me want to write this article. It is the first 100% vegan restaurant in the city centre of Avignon. Stuck between the Saint Lazare gate and the university, this small restaurant offers a most welcoming terrace. During the weekend, terrace welcome concerts and animations.
On the menu, you have the choice between the free buffet at 9.50 euros which is composed of raw vegetables, starchy foods, soy protein, beet cream, mayonnaise etc … you have the right to a cold soup for starter and coffee or tea. Or if you prefer a unique hot dish you have the plat of the day at 6.5 euros.
For the most gourmet, the desserts are 2 euros.
There is no better place to relax and eat
Address: 14 rue St Bernard, Avignon
Opening hours: every day from 10h to 22h (3h on Sundays)
Plus: all foods are organic, local and vegetable
Amorino: the glacier for gourmands
There are many glaciers with homemade ice cream in Avignon. All will offer you a wide variety of vegans sorbets. The big difference with Amorino is they are the only one offering a chocolate vegan ice cream. What I also like is that they separate ice cream and vegan sorbets from traditional ice cream.
Address: 16 rue St Agricol, Avignon
Opening hours: every day from 12h to 00h (19h on Sunday)
Plus: if you want to eat your ice cream on site, there are some tables and chairs inside.
