Where to Eat Vegan in Avignon?

Avignon is a fabulous little town at the heart of Provence, with an undeniably rich culture and history. And no, just because it’s a Medieval French town, doesn’t mean you will only find meat options here. Having visited Avignon as a vegan, I hand-picked the best vegan restaurants in Avignon for you. 

Vegan, vegetarian, or curious adventurers: here is where you will find fantastic vegan dishes to satisfy your palette. 


Address: 24 Rue de la Bonneterie, 84000 Avignon

Looking for lunch with a photogenic terrace view on a charming street?  Make your way to to V&G. Only a 5-minute stroll from the Palace of the Popes, it’s located  on the charming rue de la Bonneterie. Everything is vegetarian and 90% vegan.

Vegan starters (entrees):

Soup of the day, fine cherry tomato tart with mazza, and vegetable soup. 

Main dishes: cream of barley pearlotte d’Auvergne, potatoes millefeuille, vegetarian curry (also vegan), vegetable soup. 

Dessert: Lemon mousse, ice cream, café longuette. 

I had the vegan curry and vegan lemon mousse. Let me just say the lemon mousse was one of the best vegan desserts I ever had. If you’re in Avignon you can’t miss it!

Each dish was carefully thought out, beautifully executed, and masterfully cooked. The flavours, fresh produce, and fantastic atmosphere were all there.
