We love Joan's on Third for breakfast, eating out on the street and admiring the well-behaved dogs that are always present. Our scrambled eggs and toast were served quickly. The format is that you order your breakfast inside, take a number, and seat yourself at the tables outside on the street (there are also tables inside). Joan's also sells baked... More

We actually went twice for their breakfast which was incredible. Their omelette and eggs Benedict with hash brown is really good. Adding to that the Nutella pound cake which was very tasty. Their regular coffee is good too. They haven indoors and outdoors seating areas. We loved the outside. Definitely a must and would go again.

If you enjoy having plenty of options to order from then Joan's is your place. We enjoyed the fact that we had to order inside from the various pastries and excellent eggs selection then have it brought to our table. The Nutella poundcake is a must for all chocolate lovers.

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.
