Kitchen is a must visit for vegan pancakes, pimped toasts, smoothies and açai bowls and this cool café is based in the hip Northern Marais.

Kitchen is a hit with locals (and models!) and the good news is it’s open from 8 am 7 days a week.


The space

Walking into Kitchen is like entering a very funky canteen.

The cosy space is filled with four large, communal tables.  Behind the counter there’s an open kitchen where you can observe the super passionate chefs at work.

The simple, white walls are hung with small paintings which add character.

The little things that make a difference

On the tables, there are different jams on offer,  in case you want to add extra to your banana bread or pancakes.

The fresh green juice test

For the green juice test we had a very, very green smoothie, which contained mango, spinach, banana and spirulina (to make it even greener).

It wasn’t super sweet, and you couldn’t really really taste the banana, which I liked!

What else?

Kitchen opens at 8 am every day of the week, which is rare for Paris! But if you don’t feel like getting out of bed that early, you can also order their food on Foodora, Deliveroo and Ubereats.

What we ate

We came to Kitchen to try out their signature vegan pancake stack – the dish everybody is talking about!

We chose the full stack with fresh fruit – two huge,  thick pancakes with raspberry jam, banana slices, maple syrup and powdered sugar. The pancakes are made of brown rice flour (and a secret ingredient they wouldn’t divulge), but they are gluten free and super good!

The açai bowl was a bit too liquidy for me, but very rich and topped with fresh blackcurrants, kiwi, banana, coco flakes, coconut yoghurt and crunchy granola.

The Chia pudding was soaked in plant-based milk mixed with turmeric and agave. It was perfectly balanced with some coconut flakes, blackcurrants and pomegranate seeds.

The banana bread was the vegan treat of the day … and as I love love love banana bread, I couldn’t miss out on ordering a slice!

It didn’t contain too much banana giving it a cake-like structure which I loved. However, it did taste a bit salty.

Usually I don’t eat bread, but living in Paris makes me crave it so much. So when I heard they had bagels – I was sold! We chose the bagel with avocado and hummus. The bagel was served warm and toasted. In my experience, there’s not many places In Paris that serve good hummus, but at Kitchen,  they really do!

Wow, the hummus had such a rich flavour and was topped with some slices of avocado, tomatoes and lettuce, it made a perfect and simple combo.


What we’d go back for…
