Simple, nutritious and delicious; avocado toast is the breakfast food sweeping the nations.

When searching for the best avocado toast in Paris it makes sense to go to the source, right? Avocateria in the foodie second arrondissement is Paris’ answer to Amsterdam’s cult favorite The Avocado Show – a restaurant dedicated to avocado-based food.

They even have avocado milkshakes! If you’re in the mood for something a little more substantial, their grain bowls are generous and topped with plenty of hearty vegetables to fill you up.
