She told the Gazette: "I think this is the most sad part of the year if you don't have family, if you don't have anything. People can be really sad in December.
"We are a family run business and I think we are lucky enough and it's good to help others.
"I want to do more to help in the future, but at least for one day a week they can have someone look after them."
She said her offer is open to all homeless people in the borough - and urged Gazette readers to spread the word.
You can find La Taberna at 1 Roman Way, N7 8XG. Call 020 7607 3519.
