Louis XIV probably didn’t laze on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles eating a veggie burger (he was more a formal banquet kind of guy), but you certainly can. Outside food isn’t allowed in the palace or formal gardens, but access to the park is free, and that’s where you can picnic with falafel bowls, an Indian-leaning lentil burger with raita, and jackfruit tacos from Positive Café. It’s less than 10 minutes away from both the train and one of the park’s two picnic areas, so either tour the palace first and then pop out to get lunch, or picnic before heading inside for a Hall of Mirrors selfie.
