Wonderful omelet, wonderful local place, wonderful owner

Ate a fantastic omelet with lentils. The server/owner was friendly and accomodating despite the language barrier. It's definitely a place for regulars and super local friends of the workers. Small and homey, I felt so comfortable and taken care of. Complementary tea. Enjoyed a few hours in here.

Great value and atmosphere in a vegetarian restaurant in Paris. I think they are working only at lunch time, so check the opening hours before you go. The entrees are boring, and you can skip them, but main dishes and awesome deserts I would totally recommend.

The owner was so kind even though she didn't speak English and we barely speak French. The food was delicious, so fresh and tasted like home made. Eating out everyday in Paris was a chore to find vegetarian but this place was great. Super cozy atmosphere, not fancy but the food was so good. I highly recommend this place.

I am vegan, so eating in Paris was tough. Glad I found Joy in Food. The owner spoke little English but I asked if the dish of the day contained dairy, her response was "No dairy, no egg." The dish had a middle eastern flare, and was delicious! Would recommend to any vegetarian or vegan. Even my non-vegan husband commented... More

Being vegetarian is Paris is a tough task, but this place was a god-send for my wife (who's vegetarian). The family that runs this speaks mostly French, but are so kind and patient as we pointed to different items on the menu. It doesn't matter what you order, it's all good!
