Restaurant Review: Joy Cafe

Do you ever get fixated on a certain food and eat it until you're sated? I have a new lunch obsession - the Garden of Tuscany salad at Joy Cafe in Buckhead. Mmmm. (btw - What a FANTASTIC name for a yummy eating establishment!)

If you live or work in the Buckhead area and you're tired of the "usual" spots to eat, you simply must try this spot. I have yet to "eat in" and that's a good thing since every time I order to go, there's nowhere to sit - the place is packed out!  Unfortunately, "to go" orders aren't exactly speedy either, so be sure to call ahead.  The good news: any wait is worth it!


Here's a picture of the aforementioned salad.  Seriously. Yum.If for some reason you're not into having a salad OR you decide to go for the half sandwich/side salad combo (always a good option), I'd highly recommend the ratatouille sandwich.Of course, if what you need is some serious comfort food, you couldn't do much better than the grilled cheese sandwich.  Tastes as pretty as it looks.The sandwich comes with a side of tomato soup good enough to ruin you for ever making this combo at home ever again. Uh-Maze-Ing!Finally, if you're daily routine allows for a little somethin' somethin' for dessert, grab one of their fabulous cupcakes. Enjoy JOY!
