With this Little Five Points eatery, Jessica Roy and her husband have built something truly wonderful: a healthful, holistic and warm space where anyone can enjoy a freshly made meal comfortably.When Jessica Roy and her husband first stepped foot into the Little Five Points space that is now their beloved restaurant, Govinda’s, it was essentially four walls of concrete. There was no electricity. No walls. Nothing. Essentially, they were given a completely blank slate and told to run with it. Now, not only have they made something out of nothing, they’ve made something truly wonderful: a healthful, holistic and warm space where anyone can enjoy a freshly made meal comfortably. And we mean anyone, especially he most stringent of vegans. Jessica herself is vegan, and her husband is a lacto-vegetarian, so they walk the walk and talk the talk. Based off of the menu and concept of their sister restaurant in Philadelphia of the same name, they’ve developed a menu full of edible delights for all to enjoy. From the kofta meatballs to the Burgers Dream, to the wonderfully seasoned fries, a meal here is a true delight – one that warms us through and through.
“Me and my husband are both from large families. We wanted to give all of our food that would suit this community and suit Atlanta. And make a space where people would feel at home, and have a delicious meal, no matter what their dietary restrictions are.” Jessica tells us. Well Jessica, we say mission accomplished. The daily rotating, freshly prepared daily buffets fill our bellies with endless glee. And the wide array of sandwiches, pastries, soups and salads never fail to satiate us. Yup, Go Vinda’s may have just debuted in Atlanta, but they’re sure going to see a lot of us.
