Paris on the Go – Street Food in Paris for a Quick Lunch

Updated February 2024

Street food in Paris is a great solution to grabbing something on the go. There’s something for all tastes in this compilation, selected for quality, price, and originality. A great street food feast in Paris awaits you! In this blog, you’ll find the French classics as well as some international options to truly experience Paris the way the locals do!

Starting with Street Food in the 18th district, home to Cook’n With Class:

L’atelier Dürüm

First up a Turkish address that is a recent French favorite in the 18th, here you’ll find the chefs working the dough of the Dürüms right in the window! Dürüm is a filled galette with meat, salad, tomatoes, parsley, and red onions. From French chicken to lamb, feta, vegan options, and even lamb liver version: the delicious sandwich is enjoyed in various mouthwatering variations, each as delectable as the other.

The aroma alone has people flocking to grab a bite. They have places to sit inside but the boroks and lahmacuns along with the famous dürüms are the kind of food that is made to be enjoyed whether you’re sitting and savoring or rushing back to work (or to your cooking class).

Location: 41 rue de Clignancourt

Boulangerie du Moulin de la Galette

Hit up Boulangerie du Moulin de la Galette for a baguette that’ll make you forget all about your diet. Their pastries? A flaky, buttery ticket to bliss. Perfect for munching while you explore or for a quick, delicious bite that screams Paris. You might even recognise this place from the film Julie & Julia!

Location: 48 rue Caulaincourt – 75018 

Pierre Herme Macarons & Chocolats

Pierre Hermé is the spot for when you want to snack fancy. With the new address in Montmartre you can pop a macaron (or three) as you stroll towards your next patisserie class to get inspired, and let those flavors do a happy dance on your palate. It’s street food glamorized, with a side of chocolate because, why not? You should take a chocolate class while in Paris to understand the work that goes into these delicious bites.

Location: 13 rue du Mont-Cenis

Glace Bachir

Cool down with a scoop from Glace Bachir, where Lebanese ice cream gets a Parisian twist. Organic, creamy, and sprinkled with crushed pistachios, it’s the chill pill you need on a sunny day. It’s also an Instagram photographer’s favorite spot – you’ll see why when you get a glimpse of the cones.

Location: 7 Rue Tardieu, 75018 Paris

Arnaud Lahrer

One of the meilleur ouvriers de France, his patisseries are a delight, grab a sweet bite from his Montmartre location and judge for yourself if he’s one of the best craftsmen of France!

Location: 53 rue Caulaincourt Paris, 75018

Fromages et Ramage

Fromages et Ramage is a great place to pick up a selection of cheeses to taste while you’re about and about in Paris. Quintessentially French and a small business to support!

Location: 22 Rue Ramey, 75018 Paris

Gontran Cherrier

The star baker always has a new creation with sandwiches from bread with flavors like curry, squid, and delicious pastries, and bagels.

Location: 22 rue Caulaincourt, 75018

Sale e Pepe

This Sicilian owned deli makes the best Fresh Italian sandwiches and a range of pasta to go. They even have a small terrace where you sit in the summertime. Do forget to try their homemade ice-cream.

Location: 30 Rue Ramey, 75018


Don’t be put off by the busy area, this Indian restaurant is a little jewel on a side street off the Chateau Rouge fruit and vegetable market. Drop by for some homemade Nan bread and chicken curry all under 10 Euros.

Location: 4, rue de Suez, 75018

Pizza di Loretta

Pizza by the weight is now nothing new in Paris but this gem which now has two locations will always be on my top 10 list. You can now even order it from Deliveroo but better be planning a large party! This little Paris bijou has now opened several outlets throughout the city. Including one in our very own Montmartre. 

Location: 122 Rue Caulaincourt 75018 Paris


Crêperie Brocéliande

While you can get a crêpe here and run along on your whirlwind trip to Paris, this traditional creperie also has the Brittany classic of bowls (yes, bowls) of cider to enjoy with your crêpe!
Location: 15 Rue des Trois Frères, 75018 Paris

Gustave Claps

Situated in the famed “Sopi” area (South of Pigalle) go to Gustave’s when you are craving a fresh sandwich. But more than a sandwich it’s like a meal with a great selection such as Pastrami, Fish, Beef and Marinated Chicken served with lots of garnish in a yummy flatbread.

Location: 21 rue Henry Monnier, 75009 Paris



Moving into central Paris:

Food Trucks

Cantine California is one of Paris’ first food trucks serving burgers, tacos and homemade desserts all from organic ingredients.

Location: Marché St. Honoré.

A fabulous concept with 8 Michelin star Chef’s creating the lunch menu with organic French dishes served in a “bocal”, small glass jars. They have 4 locations in Paris and you can enjoy dishes from “croque-monsieur” to Veal stew always fresh and delicious.

Location: 3 rue Danielle-Casanova, 75001 



Street, Bangkok Local Food

A taste of the night markets of Bangkok in the city of light. This small eatery offers both eat-in and takeaway. Grab your lunch (or dinner), and grab a seat along the Canal Saint-Martin with other locals. 

Location: 3 Rue Eugène Varlin, 75010 


Pere & Fish

Maybe a fishy burger doesn’t sound great when you say it like that…but I can vouch for this place and their delicious dresh sandwiches. While this is definitely for your cheat day (you’re in Paris so that’s every day 😉) you can wash it down with their home made citronnade.

Location: 67 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75009

La Grande Épicerie de Paris

Location: 38 Rue de Sèvres, 75007
