Crêpe de la Joie

Possibly one of the most famous aspects of France is the humble crêpe which can be found on most large streets in Paris.

If you’ve ever imagined yourself in romantic Parisian movie, eating crepes and sipping espresso, head to Crepe de la Joie, and incredible vegetarian and vegan crepe restaurant. From delicious savory crêpes with vegan ham to mouth-watering sweet chocolate, banana and coconut flakes.

You and your partner can snuggle up in a corner to nibble on freshly made crepes, perfect on a rainy day. Sip hot chocolate and enjoy Paris from a spot only the locals know, although the lovely owner does speak English.

For about 35 Euros we got two savories (a galette), one sweet (sucre) and a hot chocolate. Not super cheap but to be fair, you don’t have many options for vegan crêpes, so pick your battles. You can read their full menu here.

Jah Jah By The Tricycle

Jah Jah by the Tricycle is located in a busy part of Paris where you’ll find loads of bars and other munchies if you’re still hungry. This is one of the best things to do in Paris for couples who are looking for local experiences. In true Parisian style, the tables are close and the dishes incredible.

The restaurant has a great vibe, great food, and of course, great people. The food is a real melting pot of cultures. From veggie sushi to vegan hot dogs, Jah Jah has it all.

It’s not too expensive at about 20 euros for a mushroom burger and two decently sized sides. Not cheap but definitely not bad for central Paris. The feel of The Tricycle really suited it’s self to nighttime eating in our option so this place would be great if you wanted to carry the night on afterward. Check them out on Instagram.

This is certainly a very geeky thing to do in Paris for couples but for those who love to learn about the history and hidden gems of a city will appreciate this.

Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole

Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole is an adorable and very photogenic cafe, located near Notre Dame. It’s a great place to grab a coffee and watch as tourists stroll through.

It isn’t a cheap date spot, with 2 espressos costing over 6 Euros, but the outdoor spot is a great place to rest your feet post Rick Steves tour!

For the fellow vegans out there, I don’t want to get your hopes up too high. There are sadly no vegan options bar black coffees but hey. Every vegan knows the feeling of looking at a menu thinking, “I’ll get some hummus and bread on the way home”. So even if you just come for a caffeine top-up, we really recommend bringing the person you are sweet on to this quaint spot. You can check out their menu here.

If you are bringing your significant other to Trocadero for sunrise then there’s a good chance that this person means a whole lot to you, considering you have to get up quite early.

You’ll find influencers, photographs, and people getting engaged and taking wedding shots at Trocadero year round, especially at sunrise and sunset.

You will be surrounded by lots of tourists (even at sunrise) but the Eiffel Tower view is worth it! Be sure to watch your bag because pickpockets frequent these spots.
