Per­sil & Mi­mosa’s trio of ur­ban epi­cure­ans

This tiny cof­fee shop-cum-eatery in the Pas­sage de la Bonne-Graine (hard to find a bet­ter name) is the brain­child of a cou­ple called Fa­bien and Fanny. Since 2016, for­mer nurse Fanny has been en­joy­ing suc­cess as a food and travel blog­ger (on @1car­net2notes), of­fer­ing an or­ganic cater­ing ser­vice based mainly on veg­eta­bles, un­usual spices and mixes of orig­i­nal savours. So when the con­nected cou­ple ac­ci­den­tally came across th­ese tiny premises, they had a bril­liant idea: why not open a place where they could play host to peo­ple “for real”? Once the con­ver­sion work was com­pleted, they each took up their po­si­tions: photographer Fa­bien in charge of style and vis­ual iden­tity, Fanny in the kitchen, soon joined by her mother, an ac­com­plished cook. The dishes on the menu, which changes each week ac­cord­ing to what’s in sea­son, are any­thing but bor­ing: broc­coli, co­conut and curry soup; black quinoa, feta, corn­flower and toasted hazel­nut salad; peach, sage, pis­ta­chio and wild pansy tart. Pure, new-gen­er­a­tion, com­fort food: healthy and sur­pris­ing in a cosy, ul­tra pho­to­genic set­ting. A real win­ner. Per­sil & Mi­mosa, 3, pas­sage de la Bonne-Graine, 75011 Paris. Caterer and can­teen. Open Tues­day-Fri­day, 9.30am-4.30pm; Satur­day, 10.30am-5.30pm.
