Respond to Review of Lemoni Cafe
Review: This place is on a cute street near our apartment, and so we tried stopping in for lunch the other day. It appears to be cafeteria style--all of the food is made beforehand, and you then get your pick of a hot dish (or two) and a couple of salads. The food looked okay, although none of it was vegan; and since it's all made beforehand, there's really no hope for getting vegan food. When I told the kind person who was working there that we were vegans, she didn't seem to understand (although this may be because 1. my French is very bad and 2. the words for "vegan" and "vegetarian" are nearly homophonic)--she thought I had said we were vegetarians, and then offered us fish. This is, of course, common in Paris, although I expected that this place might be different. I was then able to explain that we didn't eat fish or cheese, and she then said that there was nothing there that we could eat. So, we had to leave without having eaten anything. There did seem to be some lacto-vegetarian options, although I can't say how good they were.
