Joan’s on Third

Joan’s on Third sells itself in four simple words: Short rib. Grilled. Cheese. This devilishly delicious sandwich is exemplary of the foodie-nip that keeps the city’s gastronomes and celebs coming back to this contender for best café in LA (despite its crowds and rather bleak parking situation). A family-run, upscale-casual eatery and marketplace with sun-drenched sidewalk seating and a destination cheese counter, Joan’s has an expansive menu with enough offerings to feed visitors a different dish every day for months. An endless sandwich list also features the Ficele, with fromage d’affinois and apricot-glazed ham, and an excellent croque monsieur rendition, while daily prepared food specials and a separate breakfast menu cover the other dining bases. As a bonus, you may just spot Jake Gyllenhaal while you’re noshing.
