Upscale sandwich and salad shop. Nothing special and there are much better places in LA to get a good sandwich or a salad. You order from the counter, get a number, and then they bring you the food. Parking is a nightmare. Homemade potato chips are too greasy/salty. Hipster place to be seen. Very limited indoor seating so on a... More

Stayed next door in Orlando Hotel and breakfasted/brunched in Joan's. Cool spot with good food, coffee etc. Prices ok and staff efficient and friendly. Would put it on par with Toast which is up the street from it.

This place is amazing! The food is delicious and the price is fair for a really yummy and big sandwich. We had Maple chicken sandwich and tuna sandwich and both was delicious. The place is very busy but the service is fast and really kind.

Reminded me of Eataly in NYC. Granted it was close to lunch time but the staff could have explained the order and table delivery method better. The food was fresh and delicious, so one little staff complaint...

If you are familiar with Dean & DeLuca in Manhattan I think you can get the picture. Except, it is smaller and a bit more fancier... because, you know, it is 3rd street in Los Angeles ;) But seriously, it is a good looking place. Panini, and other sort of italian food are very good and the staff is nice.... More

It's very busy, but the service is fast. Fabulous bagels, croissants, etc. and lots of food to go for a picnic or take out.

We enjoyed this place and want to go back again to try some of their other foods. One orders at the counter, finds a table and puts a number on their table. The food is brought out when it is ready and they find you. Be sure to look in the case for their daily items that may not be... More

This is a great place to go with your family. All of the food is fresh, and and you can't go wrong with anything they serve. You really need to try the fresh potato chips. It would be a great place to stop to get cheese, sandwiches, and such to go to the amphitheater. The bakery is to die for.

While traveling to Los Angeles for work, I wanted a quiet spot to enjoy brunch outside before heading to the office for the day. Joan's on Third was recommended to be by a local friend and what a delight! I had the eggs benedict and an expresso, both were fantastic. You place your order inside and find a seat. They... More
