Uniquely Los Angeles

We have been frequenting this one-of- a- kind caterer/bakery/restaurant since its opening many years ago and have never been disappointed with the cuisine, staff or service. They are all excellent. I think it would be impossible to find anything from their kitchen or bakery that was not delicious... read more

We stumbled upon this place, which is a stone's throw from the Santa Monica pier. The ambiance is bright and friendly and the prices ($11 for a sandwich!) steep, but the staff is very friendly and the food, excellent. We sampled roast beef, mashed potatoes, grilled chicken and desserts, which we ate on stools by the window, where one can... More

I recently needed to get some picnic food for an L.A. dinner under the stars, so I dropped by Joan's on Third. The place was humming at 2:30 PM on a Friday with late lunches, coffee klatches and others, like me, ordering take-out. Though I could have pre-ordered my entire picnic (they have a separate picnic menue you can access... More

We liked the layout and the casual approach, it;s not for dining it;s for snacking and sitting down to chat and chomp down on tasty food. The only issue is ordering before finding a table....bit of a nightmare..good food and drink though for daytime. They have just opened one in Santa Monica too.

The text message read, "Meet me at Joan's On Third for breakfast - you will love the buttermilk pancakes" ....and I did! The pancakes were light and fluffy and the berries were delish. I loved the New York deli atmosphere and the staff were attentive. My first morning and breakfast in LA was very special indeed.

The location of our Hotel The Orlando was just a short walk to Joan's on Third. The quality of the cafe food as well as the coffee was excellent. Also there was a wide range of food and wine etc to take out if needed and the staff were friendly and helpful - no need to look further!!!!!!!

I visit Joan's at least once each time I'm in LA, for the food mostly, but also just to peek at all the goodies inside! The salad trio allows you to choose 3 from the many delicious salad options in the case. I ALWAYS have the Brussels sprout salad and the tuna salad, then mix it up for my third... More

This place is worth a lunch or dinner date. The gourmet salads and sandwiches will not disappoint. I had the short rib sandwich, which is one of a kind delectable. If we had a "Barefoot Contessa" shop in Los Angeles, this would be it. It's similar in the sense it sells salads, salad dressings, baked goods, gourmet candy, etc. all... More

An interesting restaurant/cafe. You order your food at a counter from a large selection of wonderful looking salads, fish and meat which is then delivered to wherever you sit. There are long tables shared with others and some smaller ones for 2 or 3 people. All the food is fresh and delicious. Also great selection of desserts and drinks. Can... More
