Le Roll Sandwiches

Guide to Street Food in Toulouse

France is quite well-known for their amazing, intricate, multi-course meals that can often last for hours. But we’ve been excited to see the rise of a popular food trend that is actually quite the opposite of those gastronomic experiences: street food.

Usually, street food is associated with ready-to-eat (or quickly prepared) food that is hawked by vendors in markets, fairs, parks, or – you guessed it – the streets. It’s a genre of food that is fast, easy, and absolutely delicious!

Learn about Toulouse’s exciting street food options with our comprehensive guide. The following blog showcases the best of Toulouse’s exceptional street food scene, featuring innovative twists on traditional fare, exquisite artisanal sweet treats, and award-winning sandwiches and kebabs.

We hope we provide you with plenty of ideas for where to eat during your time in Toulouse. If you’d like to take a one-of-a-kind food tour led by a local expert, consider booking a place on our Toulouse Wine Bar Tour or Victor Hugo Market Walking Tour

Crepes are, naturally, one of the most popular street foods in Toulouse, so you’ll never struggle to find street vendors or stands at restaurants around the Place du Capitole preparing fresh crepes with simple toppings, such as Nutella, jam, and sugar.
