If you are near the airport and want a great breakfast go here. Avoid the chains like IHOP. This place is pure homemade. Had eggs with chorizo and home fries. Very good. Service was excellent. Its a dinner!!! Near the airport a cant miss

I had the sleeping beauty and my friend had the TAS for lunch - we both loved the sandwiches and the fries were really good. Service was quick and friendly. Only real negative for me was the walk to the small bathroom in the back through the kitchen - it's a cramped walk and you have to squeeze past all... More

I ate breakfast here twice. I liked the granola...the buckwheat pancakes were a little dry though...bacon was sublime! Orange juice had to be fresh squeezed! The scone was uninspired...but my husband's & mother-in-law's eggs looked great!

We went with a few different taste buds and everyone was satisfied. From breakfast to burgers. Great food. Tucked away, but worth looking for.

I have been to all the local restaurants looking for ome,ets cooked the way Jo-annns makes them, to no avail. They are fluffy, soft and filled as you like them. Also, you can order eggs "scrambled" with omelet ingedients which are fluffy, not overdone and tasty. My favorite scramble is chorizo, jack cheese, avocado, with sour cream on top. Try... More

FOOD: Although nothing stood out as exceptionally tasty, we enjoyed our breakfast here nonetheless. The dishes were wholesome, robust, and amply portioned. But they consisted of the type of pedestrian fare (e.g., omelets, scrambles) that I could have made at home at a fraction of the cost. SERVICE: The service was superb. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive, and efficient.... More

We spent the night in S San Francisco as our plane leaves early the next morning. Needed a good dinner. We've stopped at Joann's before but always for breakfast. Good solid diner fare for dinner. Portions are super large, almost better for sharing. My H had the turkey plate and I had the southwestern chicken salad. The salad had black... More

JoAnn's has been a favorite of mine (and many of my friends') for over 20 years. Not fancy, but always great quality, fresh, tasty food, served by cheerful, attentive wait staff diner-style. Omelettes are my favorite, but all the egg dishes, salads and burgers I've tried have been a pleasure. It's in a little strip mall on El Camino Real,... More

We asked a guy at the gas station for a place for breakfast other than Denny's. He said that JoAnn's was the place and that it was "kinda famous". We tried it and were not disappointed. Nothing fancy about it, but very good food with more than ample portions and best of all, tasty! The orange/cranberry scones and the cinnamon/raisin... More
