I've been to Joan's quite a few times, but this time I was able to actually get to meet Joan. She's a sweetie and such a hard worker. Love their tarragon chicken salad, cous cous, etc., everything is very good. I've also been to the Joan's in Studio City, which is very good also, but there is something about the... More

Haven't been here in years ~ They open at 8:00AM! I'm always on the lookout for great breakfast places that are open by 6:00AM, so JOAN'S is a 'late-day' treat! I don't believe I've ever had the EGGS BENEDICT here and now I know what I've been missing the past decade ~ ABSOLUTELY BEST EGGS BENEDICT on the planet! So... More

My wife and I love this place and everytime we visit LA we go there for Breakfast. On this visit we went there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We love the food there, it is healthy and you see so many people takeouts. The staff are good and service is excellent. We didn't get to meet Joan on but hopefully... More

We came for lunch on Friday and it was packed. The Chinese chicken salad was not bad; same for the roasted corn soup although it was a bit too sweet for my taste. The mac and cheese looked good but was very bland. Pricey for what it is.

This is our favorite breakfast spot in LA. The fried egg sandwich is perfect. The Eggs Benedict are divine. The pancakes are a treat. The fresh squeezed orange juice is refreshing. Parking at this location was easy both times we went. There are meters along the street. The service is outstanding. The atmosphere is darling and laid back. We got... More

If you want to catch stars doing their daily thing, head to 3rd street in LA and Joan's on Third - yummy outside cafe where you can people watch while enjoying the delicious food, I personally love all the deserts at Joan's its great for coffee and a sweet treat.

We visited Joan's on Third for breakfast as a group of four (me, my wife, our 18 year old daughter and her 18 year old friend) on holiday from the UK. The food was great. I had the corn beef hash which was excellent, my daughter had the granola ("great") and my wife and our daughter's friend had the pancakes... More

6 of us ate here today and enjoyed every morsel! Salads, sandwiches and drinks. Everything was excellent. One item I ordered was a salad with cilantro dressing. I am one of the unlucky people who hate cilantro. It tastes like soap. So I asked for a substitute dressing. I was told they don't substitute, but I could have the cilantro... More

Joans on Third is the perfect spot for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. They have patio seating which is great for people watching. Also, if you are in a rush they have lots of prepackaged food you can pick up. The inside is beautiful- clean, light, and fresh. I went for breakfast and got the avocado toast with a fried egg...
