“Great Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This was a really great place to have breakfast. Amazing pastries, lots of variety, excellent service, great prices. I can't remember being treated so well by the numerous service people in a restaurant. Each person seemed so genuinely friendly and wanting to help and be accommodating. The food was first rate, with REAL maple syrup for the delicious French Toast, and a great variety of fresh fruit (including peaches and perfectly ripe melon) in the fruit bowl. They also serve delicious handmade ice cream. You can sit outdoors, at small tables, or long tables with others. Everyone was so friendly, and Joan made regularly tours of the clientele, stopping to chat with several people, all of whom seemed to have been coming to this great restaurant for years. We would definitely return to this fantastic place next time we are in LA.

“Over-hyped!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

The food is average at best. If you are close by, give it a try but if you drive a distance just to get here you will be disappointed.

“BEST FIND for anytime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Besides the fantastic cheese counter, this gourment market offers incredible freshly baked offerings as well as a great menu for anytime. I never miss it when I am in this area.

“Great vibe to this place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast here recently when staying nearby. Good selection, quality food and great ambience. We tried to get in for lunch the day before but there was a queue, so that says a lot. This seems to be an area undergoing a rejuvenation and Joan's appears to have the right fit. Would definitely visit when next in LA.
