Great for Breakfast

At Joan's on Third, you order from the compact menu inside, then they bring you your brea kfast outside, so you eat on tables and chairs on the street while people watching on busy and interesting Third Street in LA. All breakfasts are made to order and delicious. Eggs, pancakes, omelettes... read more

Place is clean. Staff is polite and attentive for the most part. I did feel a lil snobbery by some of the staff! I ordered the short rib sandwich and Nutella cake. Wow! Going back for the sandwich for sure. The price was ridiculous! Parking for this place can be tough and I suggest that u don't even try on... More

I walked past and saw their cheese counter through the window. That sold me. I enjoyed an excellent cheese board, some of their pâté and a glass of Provençal rosé, which for me is the perfect light supper. There are some tables scattered throughout the shop, and there is outdoor seating if you don't mind inhaling Los Angeles exhaust fumes... More

When I was interning in LA, we used to hit this place very very (VERY!) frequently ! It was one of my favorite spot in WeHo. All the pastries are to die for (perfect for breakfast !!! Or for snacks. Or anytime actually #sorrynotsorry) and actually everything looks really appealing. But despite the mouth-watering offer, I could not hit this... More

Heard about this place from friends. Went in and asked the man making the sandwiches which one was the best. He told me the short rib sandwich and it was one of the best sandwiches that I have ever had. Can't wait to go back and try some more. Everything in the store looked fresh. Would definitely recommend.

People rave about Joan's on Third. It is deserved. The baked goods are scrumptious. The coffee is very good. You order at the counter an then take your number to the table. We didn't realize there are free refills of coffee right away. The omelette my friend ordered was beautiful. I ate the super flaky ham and cheese hand pie... More

This place is always packed. A good reputation by serving many meals. I had breakfast and wanted to add more items to my omelet but was told I could have only three.

I went to Joan's yesterday to check it out and buy some things from their market. I bought a piece of carrot cake, strawberry cream puffs, a muffin and Joan's potato chips. The potato chips were great. The bakery items were dry and lacked flavor. I guess it's a better place to go to and eat a meal rather than... More

We checked in to The Orlando Hotel and needed an early dinner because of our three-hour time difference. Less than a block away is Joan's on Third. It reminded me of Whole Foods or Fresh Market where you have a choice of prepared dishes or made-to-order sandwiches. The layout is confusing for a first-timer, but any of the multiple stops...
