Montpellier is one of those towns that’s high up in my France travel bucket list. I just love the Mediterranean vibe, the charming historical center and the awesome beaches. It’s really one of those cities that has it all. With a little bit of research, you can find great vegan options. Luckily, for you I have done the work for you. Vegan, vegetarian, or curious adventurer here are my top recommended vegan-friendly restaurants and grocery stores for amazing vegan food in Montpellier.

Vegan and Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Montpellier

Les Demoiselles de Montpellier

2 Rue de la Carbonnerie, 34000 Montpellier

Les Demoiselles de Montpellier is a charming café located in the heart of the old town. The café offers a range of vegan-friendly options, including delicious salads and sandwiches.

I went here to grab some vegan pastries to take back on the train journey heading home as I knew there wouldn’t be many vegan options at the station. The décor is adorable and there’s free wifi. Their vanilla cake with vegan white chocolate and almond shavings was to live for- definitely try it if you’re there!

8 bis Rue du Bras de Fer, 34000 Montpellier

Getting lost in the city center. Turning left, you are met with rainbow-colored steps and a charming street: Rue du Bras de Fer.

Takkito is a Mexican-inspired restaurant with a small booth where you can place your order. There is only one table; if you want to eat on the rest of the tables outside you need to buy your drinks from the neighboring commerces next to the restaurant. For example, at the bookstore it’s a drink per person. And buying a book doesn’t count. They didn’t have any soft drinks or juices that day. So I found myself ordering tea.

While not entirely vegan, there are vegan options on the menu. Like the vegan nachos, chili bowl, curry bowl, and vegan takkitos. The chef cooks everything with fresh ingredients and skill. You can really sense the great execution in the dishes. 

Guys the vegan nachos are everything (they are halal unlike the regular version with beer). I loved them- literally the best nachos I’ve ever had.

The vegan takkitos were alright (maybe because I didn’t add the sauce), the side vegetables: corn and broccoli were delicious and beautifully cooked. Next time, I will try the curry and order to go. I think it’s nice to eat there for the first time, but due to the seating logistics, I would prefer to make it a picnic day on a bench or in a park.  

Green Gorilla

6 rue du puits des esquilles, 34000 Montpellier

If you’re craving a vegan homemade burger and fries head to Green Gorilla- a completely vegan restaurant in Montpellier. This vegan fast-food joint serves burgers, hot dogs, and fries, all made with fresh plant-based ingredients.

If you have a stubborn non-vegan entourage, take them here- they won’t be able to tell the difference with their food, especially the burger!

Joy Healthyfood

If you’re looking for a fully 100% vegan café and restaurant with organic and gluten- free options then Joy Healthyfood is a great spot. It’s a yoga studio with a neighboring cozy café that offers a variety of vegan options, including lunch bowls, soups, and home-made pastries.
