5 star item - short rib sandwich

Hands down the best sandwich I've had in years. Truly excellent. There are so many other options from the deli and off the menu. Will go back. The only con, the coffee wasn't great.

The eating area is first come first served. They have many tables outside and some inside too. After waiting in line to place your order, you grab a seat and they find you with your order. There are several ordering stations and you can order from any one of them. The food was delicious and came out quickly. For an... More

Just happen to walk to this restaurant/bakery on Friday morning while visiting LA. Order at the counter then sat down and waited shortly for a wonderful little breakfast. I had the Fried Egg Sandwich, it was delicious. My wife ordered the Organic Farm Egg soft boiled with toasted Pain de mie bread & Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal. We both enjoyed... More

All 7 of us were starving and Joan's didn't disappoint, rather it catered for all our different requirements and gave us a pavement view. From the hot macaroni cheese to the packed sandwiches and oversized salad bowls filled with deliciousness, this is a place to go to. Desserts were great to although I wish I'd taken longer to choose. Nice... More

This has been my favorite breakfast/lunch/brunch spot for a while now when I come to Los Angeles. The service is fast and effective and the food is really good. Make sure you try the Short Rib Melt and The Chicken Chinese Salad, but all their sandwiches are very tasty.

We stopped in while we were in Southern California and so glad we did! The food was fresh and we loved the atmosphere. We will definitely come back

We ate breakfast here one morning and loaded up on delicious frozen and fresh goodies to take to our weekend rental in Newport. The store itself is a delight to browse through and we picked up spinach dip, crab cakes, hummus and munchies on our way out. Breakfast is ordered at the counter and they bring it to your table,...

I love Joans. When you are dieting people tell you that if you have to get in your car to get food you likely wont' want it. Not true with Joan's. I will drive to wherever I need to for a grilled cheese with bacon and a piece of carrot cake. This is not a gluten free zone. It's a... More

We had lunch here three times on our trip. This place is busy, busy, busy but the sandwiches are worth it. The short rib is particularly good and there is usually a special side to be had too.
