Super cool vibe, cash only. You know a place rocks when it is cash only, that means they don't have to, need to, or want to deal with cc vendors etc to make it work. Make good food and they'll come, despite the inconvenience. Amazing smoothies with sexually charged names. My go-to is the chicken curry wrap. Oh yeah.
In 2000, Joan Brosnan set out to give the then-sleepy town of Montauk, NY exactly what it needed: a hip little joint dishing out good food for the soul and palate. South of Main Street, within walking distance to the beach and to Montauk village, Joni debuted her quaint take-out or grab-a-picnic-table "kitchen". Instantly notable, Joni's became a foody's hidden gem, frequented by artists, writers, celebrities and the surfer set. Walk into Joni's Kitchen and there's an immediately seaside vibe - turquoise hues, retro Hawaiian postcards and vintage surfing photos fill the sunny walls. Each season Joni tweaks the extensive menu of creative breakfast offerings, pressed sandwiches, and artistic salads. Her ingredients are wholesome, organic (and when called for, "oh not so organic") featuring a pulled-together medley of edible favorites - including delectable options for the gluten free-ers, vegetarians and vegans. The "all fresh fruit" smoothies and squeezed juices are worth queuing up for, as is the kids menu for mini dudes.
