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

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...

When I visit family in West Hollywood Joan's is a must visit. Usually go for afternoon tea and just so many great items to go with the excellent tea selection. Just have not had anything there I did not enjoy and want more of. Breakfast and lunch are just as great. The best!

Joan's on Third is an unbelievable place to eat for breakfast or lunch. My wife and I both ordered an iced coffee and shared the crinkle cut beach fries. The fries are served with a delicious mayo and are perfect for a snack on your Santa Monica Beach Day. You're welcome!

The restaurant can feel a bit confusing on exactly how to get your food. Grab a menu from the front. Go to the register to order. They bring the food to your table. If it still feels overwhelming, ask the staff. They all are very kind and helpful. The portions are HUGE. You should consider sharing. The food is absolutely... More

Stayed at Orlando Hotel and had breakfast here twice. Had the Honey Bran twice and a scone. Both were good. Didn't get to try the coconut cupcake. Everything looked great! Loved eating outside.

Went for breakfast on a Friday was quite busy but the service was quick and efficient. Had to order first before taking a seat. I opted for the New York sandwich which was delish. Loved the freshly squeezed OJ!! Great spot for a bit of breakkie
