Sweet Joan

 Sweet candy sprinkles

One of my favorite places in LA is called Joan's on Third. It's great to get there early in the morning and sit outside with a cup of coffee and a croissant to enjoy the weather.

Ready made sandwich snacks

After you're done with your breakfast or lunch you can go inside and peruse the cheese section to find you favorite creamy brie or go to the freezer section for a sweet ice cream treat. 

Cheese section and pasta brought from Joan's latest trip to Italy

I was happy to talk to Joan herself and when I complimented the place she responded "We put a lot of love into it" and it shows... For this reason I would like to start the month of February with a place that I love and that I know loves all its clients...

  17. This is my favorite deli in LA! I always order the chicken tarragon with a rootbeer and if I'm feeling crazy, I'll have a chocolate jimmie cupcake too, soooo good! Plus love their pickled cucumbers, divine! Good call! Hope you had a wonderful trip to LA.
