Review


We frequent Joi Café whenever we are visiting Southern California so we were excited to try this new place in Thousand Oaks. However, we were very disappointed after I asked some questions and found out that they make in-house a “gluten reduced”sourdough bread. They use regular flour and showed me the ingredient list … it is made from regular white flour, whole wheat flour and rye flour (please see photo of the ingredients). So therefore, they are not a dedicated facility and the kitchen would have regular flour that is airborne. (When I got home and looked at the photo I took of the ingredient list that they showed me, it says Five Star Frogs Bakery under it so the person who told me they make it there may be wrong, and maybe they buy it from someone else - maybe someone else can inquire when they go to verify this). We decided it was not safe for us to eat there. Instead we went to their other restaurant that is about 10 minutes away (Joi Café in Westlake Village) because Joi Cafe is a dedicated gf facility (that does not make this reduced gluten sourdough bread). I would not recommend Joi Birds if you are super sensitive like I am.
