“Charming, Upscale Casual and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

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 on the regular menu before you order. We found metered parking on the street for a dollar (credit cards accepted in the meter), or there is free valet parking in the back if available.

“Buy the fresh potato chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

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.

“What a great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

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 had heated lamps outside for the cooler temperatures (it was about 65). The restaurant was quiet busy inside, but I had no trouble finding a seat and did not feel rushed to finish my meal.

“My favorite food spot when visiting LA.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The store is so amazing and you can eat your way thru it. From breakfast to dinner and snacks and coffee in between. You can eat in or take out. Sundays are crowded but so worth the wait. Staff is so friendly and they aim to please. I love to take care packages home. Good new from my cousin.....Joan's is opening in studio city soon! Can't wait to visit.

“Cool and Charismatic brekkie..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Breakfast outside in the California sun, perfect! Service and food, great. The choice and quality very good and it would be easy to let breakfast turn into lunch here, the atmosphere is typically LA casual and laid back. The display of mouth watering cakes and pastries means you can't resist taking a piece of heaven home with you, not to mention the tantalising deli offer complete with bread and wine. At around $20 per head for coffee, juice and cooked breakfast this place is a must-go-to.
