Stopped by this bright and airy eatery for a casual and quick lunch. They offer a selection of hot and cold food at the counter. I had the Lasagne which was excellent. Sorry I can't recall the dishes others ordered but they were all well received. They have a selection of gourmet food and cheese on offer too. Recommended.

Came here for breakfast and tried the chinese chicken salad and the short-rib sandwich. It was delicious! The place is very popular and it was packed.

I had heard a lot about this cafe, so i had high expectations to begin with. The food was not memorable. It was crowded and loud. Very average.

Tarragon chicken salad was one of the best. Combination of mild taste of tarragon, celery and apple was so wonderful. Don't miss it anyway.

I ordered an amazing omelette with goat cheese, sautéed onions and bacon. I havent seen a goat cheese omelette this cheap since Spain ($12). Service was excellent in a very inviting atmosphere. Weather was perfect to sit outside and chat to catch up with old friends.

Went based on reviews and whilst it was very good I wasnt blown away. Probably should have gone with waitress suggestion of a brekkie buritto but instead had the eggs benedict which was good. Mrs had the avo on toast which was spicy but good. Keen to go back and have a full meal, huge deli section with nice salads... More

When fate had me up early one morning. I suffered with it. I agree with Snoopy I don't do mornings. Eight am is the crack of dawn as far as I am concerned. So when my friend who lives on a quiet side street near to 3rd said. I wondered if she had coffee ready to serve. "No let's walk... More

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
