If you’re vegan and are thinking about visiting Aix-en-Provence, your food options will be slim. There are no vegan or vegetarian restaurants. However, there is a plethora of Italian restaurants, which some of them have traditional pasta options: penne arrabiata and spaghetti marinara. You could also ask for no cheese with the vegetarian pizzas. Ironically, the Italian food here is horrible for being down south near Italy. We’ve only tried two restaurants, but they were so bad that we were scarred from them, preventing us from taking our chances again at other Italian joints around town. You may have better luck than us. Perhaps your food exploration may be better than ours.
Aside from Italian restaurants, there are a couple of smoothie joints and one place that serves truly vegan sorbets, and it happens to be the only place that serves organic sorbet and gelato. But for food, the best place we’ve eaten at is a little hole-in-the-wall Mexican place. La Boca Loca is the only Mexican joint in town, and in our opinion it is the best place to eat here. We’ve eaten there three times and will probably go back one last time before we leave Aix. Make sure if you try them out, tell them you don’t want cheese and dairy in your vegan burrito or taco. Be clear and point out all of the non-vegan things you don’t want, because if you don’t you will end up with dairy even if you ordered a vegan burrito. Not everyone here understand what vegan is.
Although your food selection is minimal, there are some vegan options. I highly recommend La Boca Loca. And for the short time that you’re probably going to visit Aix, the small selection will be good enough.
