Gentle Gourmet Cafe, Paris France

Location: 24 Boulevard de la Bastille, 75012 Paris, France

Our last day in Paris we started off eating breakfast and Gentle Gourmet. Even though some of the dinner foods were less than amazing, they did have croissants so we had to go back and try them out. They were really tasty - probably the best vegan croissants I have had. Light and flaky and just amazing. We took some to go so we could eat them on the plane early the next morning.

We also tried on of their sandwiches which is actually twice as big as the photo since they cut it in half for us and gave us our own plates. The people working here really are the nicest people and the lady who owns it is so sweet. We walked in and we had stayed at the Gentle Gourmet bed and breakfast two years ago. She came over and was like you guys didn't stay at the b&b did you? She remembered us from 2 years ago! Incredible as I am sure she has met a lot of people. We also had a nice talk about vegan foods and Paris and Seattle and they are just incredibly nice and accommodating here. The sandwich had smoked tofu, mayo, lettuce and tomato on a baguette and it was incredible! One of the best sandwiches I have ever had! We also got our own sandwiches to go to take with us back to Berlin they were so good.

We also tried one of their crepes with a chantilly cream filling and chocolate sauce. I saw this and thought this is going to be way too sweet for me as I don't like very sweet things in the morning. It was however perfect - not too sweet. The cream was very light and marshmallow fluff like and just melted in your mouth. Very tasty.

Overall - We found the dinner to be hit or miss, but the sandwiches and croissants are incredible! Definitely stop in and get one of each as they are amazing. It makes me with I had one right now...
