Le Petit Ogre
Restaurant, Healthy, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, French
What strikes people when eating at Le Petit Ogre is the passion and enthusiasm the staff shows to provide the best service. In this cozy restaurant, all the food comes from local producers and offers a variety of dishes for vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free diets. If you have a chance to stop by, try the “végé/vegan” formula, a customer favorite. Le Petit Ogre also has a takeaway service, so don’t hesitate to pick up a healthy snack to go.
You’ll immediately feel at ease as you step into Sovaga, a restaurant with gorgeous décor only a few steps away from the Place du Capitole. Among the large choice of gluten-free dishes are also recipes that only use raw ingredients. Try the Sova Bowl for a feeling of instant rejuvenation. This wonderful place is also a tea room, does takeaway, and has a catering service too.

Invita Fresh Food came from a couple’s desire to serve vegan and gluten-free food to their customers. Indeed, all the products are super fresh and will give you the boost of energy you need. Go with friends and share their delicious falafels and keftas, or try the “croq salad croq chaud” while eating some raw burgers. To go along with this copious feast, try their home-made juices or smoothies. So you don’t miss out on such a treat, it is highly recommended you make a reservation in advance.

Opening a vegetarian restaurant in the Occitanie region twenty years ago – in a region of France with excellent cassoulet and duck-based dishes – might have seemed a bit ludicrous. Twenty years later, and La Faim des Haricots is one of the most popular vegetarian venues in Toulouse. You’ll no doubt need some self-control once you see their all-you-can-eat buffet. Fill your plate with curry, zucchini and tasty hummus, and indulge in some coconut ice cream for dessert.
The earthy and green vibe of this restaurant will automatically soothe your mood and prepare you for a perfect evening. If you thought you knew Indian food well, then think again. Manger Autrement Chez Prasad will take you on a wonderful journey to discover this rich cuisine in a different manner. The chef’s incredible ability to turn raw ingredients into tasteful meals is worth the visit. We recommend the thali, which is only served at night.

Chez Végétayelle & Snack Vegan demonstrates that snacking need not be an unhealthy habit. This charming venue only serves local, vegan food that is certified with the Label BIO Ecocert 2017, proof of the high quality of its products. In addition, Gaëlle, the co-owner of the venue and her team are very concerned with protecting the environment and regularly organize events in order to promote vegan culture. We recommend you start with the lentil burger, then try the chocolate-peanut cake for dessert.

Some people might be reluctant to eat in vegetarian restaurants because they’re afraid to pay more for less food. This is usually not the case, and you’ll certainly not experience that in Saveurs Bio. You get to choose from a variety of fresh products at very affordable prices. For starters, begin with a cold cucumber soup with garlic, then continue with the vegetarian lasagna and cheese. If by the end you still have room for dessert, then any pick from the menu is delicious.
