“So good, I stop by for lunch several times a week.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I just love Joan's, and come by several times a week. My favorite is the turkey club sandwich; my son loves the fried chicken sandwich. The takeout salads are nice, soups are good as well. They have a selection of cheeses and prepared foods, an assortment of wines, and, of course, an array of tempting desserts. Coffees are excellent. You'll be offered a cold bottle of water at your table by the very friendly wait staff. Although busy, you can usually find a place to sit down and eat - after you get your order number. No disappointments here!

“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I want to say this was not vey good , then people will not go and I will have the place to myself , but I am too late the word is out.
This place is fantastic !!!
We arrived for lunch ( which most people had), and were blown away by the place.
There is so much choice on the menu then when you have decided you go to the counter and they have a specials board which throws you again.
I decided to have the prawn fish cake , wow it was to die for.
They have a shop also where you can buy all the fantastic things they sell from nice cheeses to scrumy cakes!!!
All I will say is go early to get a table, there are plenty of tables both inside and out but at lunch time very very busy.
Well worth a visit and a re visit !!!
I am on my way xxx

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The salad trio cant be beat. Fresh ingredients, choose your sides and make your own meal plate. Fun and lively. Busy during weekday lunches. Not full table service, so if you want to be served, this is not for you. Good place to take out food.
