This place is nothing fancy but it has an awesome breakfast! The homemade toast is amazing! You get 2 LARGE slices to go with your huge breakfast! You won't leave hungry. If you like hole in the wall places with great food and service, check out The Joy of Eating Cafe!

I've been going for more than 20 years but they have been open longer. Its small but its clearly a neighborhood joint that welcomes all. I have gone there alone and with a party of kids and friends. The food is the name THE JOY OF EATING, from their home made bread, to their country potatoes to my favorite the crab sandwich this place is the BOMB. You don't go for the decor but you will keep coming for the service and the food. They have a location in Suisun now, its bigger AND the food and service lost nothing in the expansion.

Restaurant was clean, food was plentiful and tasted fantastic and the service was friendly and efficient. Everyone was there to enjoy good, local food. The 24 min parking is not enforced! An oasis in an otherwise area devoid of charm. Don't let the neighborhood scare you away. This place deserves your enjoyment!

We visited Joy of Eating on a Sunday afternoon when we found our usual local diner closed. Even though we arrived probably 10 minutes before closing time at 2:30 pm, we (3 adults, 2 small children) were treated graciously and never felt we were being rushed.

Food portions were very generous and well prepared. This is not gourmet dining, but the food was prepared from fresh ingredients. We really had more than we could eat, even though none of us had eaten since early morning.

The only flaw in our service (understandable given our late arrival) was the omission of a cup of decaf coffee. But we wouldn't let that be a reason not to visit again.

If you can get a seat then you are in for some good food, they also make their own bread, buy a loaf or two.
