Gourmet diner food but get a loan to pay for it

Some food we got here was magnificent, other things were very mediocre, but the prices are high enough to get a white table cloth anywhere else in the world.

Joan's on Third has two locations and we eat at their Studio City restaurant on the edge of the Farmers Market. Joan has the look of a marketplace with floor to ceiling black framed steel windows and glossy white tile walls and white exposed ducts and pips in the ceiling. You are surrounded by display cases of bakery, cheese, deli... More

The place is branded within an inch of its life but they still pull off this mega eating spot. Fresh produce and friendly staff make Joan's such a popular spot.

Joan's on Third is terrific for breakfast, eating on the street and watching the well behaved dogs who hang out there with their masters There are a few tables inside. All the food is of the highest quality. They also have excellent cheeses, sandwiches, yogurt, etc., to eat there or take out.

The variety offered is always great, but pricing is a little on the high side, which apparently the market will still bear. A favorite go to for local business and studios, Joan's is always busy and sometimes the din and the lines are more than you might want to put up with. Food is fresh, good selection of vegetarian and... More

I know this diner is a cut above in many respects, one only has to look at the Q on a Sunday to gauge the popularity however on my last visit I did not feel the meals were the same standard as previous visits. On this occasion however, service was very rushed even though it was a midweek, mid-afternoon visit... More

I LOVE Joan's on Third. Whenever I'm in Los Angeles (which is about 5 times a year for work) I go to Joan's every morning. Their macaroons are amazing, their sandwiches are amazing, the cheese and bread is out of this world… Their coffees are delicious… atmosphere is beautiful and there are celebrity sightings there all the time. A must... More

Great home made food , very well priced and in an interesting part of town. I had a quiche and broccoli salad - hard to find well made quiches but this was pretty good. Pastry well cooked and good balance of leek and egg/cream. Broccoli salad with dates and slightly spicy also pretty good. My husband found the tuna salad... More

Joan’s on third in the Beverly Grove area of LA is very trendy - a place to see and be see. Good prices and a friendly environment. Everything is cooked fresh. It is always busy and ordering is a little confusing as the place is a deli/marketplace. You order inside first at the register, grab a number and then find... More

Such a sweet little place, and a perfect brunch spot! It's usually very busy and can definitely feel crowded, but they do have a take-out option which is great.
