Joan's on 3rd

The cheese counter at Joan's on Third. (img: Joan's)

A mother-daughter operation situated on trendy Third Street, this pricy gourmet market resembles a quaint Dean & Deluca, or the shuttered East Hampton gem, Barefoot Contessa. Their well-curated shelves hold non-perishibles, and separate counters display top-notch baked goods (we loved the chocolate coffee cake) or savory prepared foods (like the baby heirloom and bocconcini salad). Guests can grab their charcuterie and Fromage D’Affinois and have a picnic elsewhere, or plant themselves at the communal table or outdoor cafe tables. If the wait at Toast is unbearable, don’t resist having your brunch here, where a short but spectacular breakfast menu is served daily. The Goat Cheese and Asparagus Omelette is fresh and perfectly cooked!

Joan’s on Third. 8350 W Third St., Los Angeles, CA 90048. ph. (323) 655-2285
