At Chéri Coco, everyone is nice, everyone is organic! Located across from the Hermès workshops in Pantin and more surprisingly next to a butcher’s shop, this Afro-Caribbean spot from Marie Boye (the former owner of an artsy shop), Luvinsky Atche (a former actor) and Foulématou Kakaroto Bangoura (a former graphic designer) is no less than the first vegan café in the neighborhood. The space? Antique pink walls, a concrete bar, crates of vegetables and an open kitchen, where well-made plates are prepared by Foulématou. Devoured the other day at lunch: a surprising revisited vegan sausage made with stale bread and fresh herbs, paired with potatoes in a gooey faux-cheese sauce (made with cashew cream); lovely grilled Chinese cabbage paired with sun-dried tomato pesto; followed by six crispy breaded maki filled with pickled carrots, mango and caramelized onion, all electrified by a soy-sesame-ginger sauce; before a raw tartlet topped with pear and cashew mousse, a little less impressive than the rest. // Zoé Deray 

FEELING THIRSTY? An impeccable selection of fresh juice, bissap and ginger lemonade (€6) and, to warm yourself up, a peanut butter, chai or cacao latte (€6). 
PRICE: À la carte €13-23, brunch €28 (Sunday).
