a café-restaurant like no other

At our NYC café like in all our other cafés in the world, we employ crew members with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and we empower them through meaningful training and employment. 

At Café Joyeux NYC, you will enjoy our selection of specialty coffee, tea and beverages, as well as delicious food that we make fresh on premises every day: come see us and enjoy our selection of French-inspired breakfast, lunch or snacks.

Our selection is also available for catering, for all your meetings and events. 


For here or to go, a crew member will joyfully serve you your order, from the heart.
