For a quick lunch that does not involve grease or excessive carbohydrates, this Franco-Cretan (as in Crete, Greece) cafe is a sure bet. Dedicated to healthy, organic cooking with a Mediterranean bent, this colorful luncheonette offers a delicious selection of homemade soups, salads, hot dishes, juices, and yummy deserts, with plenty of vegetarian options. You can eat onsite or take a meal to go. There is a second Lemoni at 5 rue Hérold in the 1st arrondissement.
