“Nice casual breakfast place.”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We enjoyed our breakfast here. The Mexican Scramble was great. As well as their eggs. The pancakes were also quite good. If you’re looking for a breakfast place in Palo Alto, this would be the place. Breakfast for three was about $20 per person with tax and tip included.

“Home cooking at it's best”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Joanie's is a local favorite of mine. The staff is always welcoming. Food is delicous but not fancy. This is a casual restaurant that feels like home. It's one of the few places that pleases children as well as adults.

“Homey place, classic food”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

We were going to try this place for breakfast but serendipity had us there at dinner time, hungry and anxious. The dinner menu is full of classics, perfectly prepared, in generous portions. I had the delicious sole; my companions had the pasta bolognese and the mussels. All good choices. Gracious service. Will return for breakfast!

“Excellent breakfast”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Went to Joanie's for breakfast. Great selection of breakfast classics, omelettes, pancakes etc. Food is great quality and really tasty - all our dishes were great. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, holding our table while we're waiting for a friend who got delayed which is really nice on a busy Sunday morning. Highly recommended.
