I found Joan's on third by looking up ratings on trip advisor before coming to LA. I went down right before closing. The staff was exceptionally nice and calm. I ordered the Asparagus soup and Short Rib Sandwich. OMG SOOOOO GREAT! I would order the same things again!

Love the vibe at this quaint place. Lovely fresh variety of food. Had breakfast and lunch here - both excellent. Best macaroni and cheese I've had in my life-and I've tasted many! You're also bound to spot a celeb or two. My favorite LA food spot. We even got served by Joan on our lunch trip!

Let me just tell you - this place - there is nothing like it! The food is absolutely delicious and so are the desserts! I love how you can sit outside and enjoy your food. It's very pricey for lunch, but SO worth it! I got the cobb salad for lunch and a vanilla cupcake for dessert. Everything was just... More

We found Joan's on Third by accident, unbelievably. Driving by and there were lots of people out front. Then we went back twice and also bought food to take back to our hotel. And we were only in LA for 3 days! Then we looked at the rest of the reviews and understood how lucky we were to have happened... More

Got the short rib sandwich as suggested, and it was amazing. The parking is going to be challenging but it will be worth the wait.

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

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, pastries, are all on the menu. They also sell... 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
