Joan’s on Third: A Gourmet Market and Cafe in Los Angeles

Joan's on Third is a gourmet market and cafe just a short trip away from Park La Brea in Los Angeles. The space combines a delightful market with a convivial eatery, and it's become a favorite of locals who appreciate great food.

In the space, visitors will find a number of gourmet food items. The market's bakery has sweet treats such as cupcakes, lemon bars, and more, along with freshly baked bread. A cheese and charcuterie section offers a huge number of cheeses from around the world, while a deli case has a changing roster of fresh fish, poultry, and produce. Joan's on Third also has a selection of grocery items including olive oil, sea salt, and wine.

One of this place's biggest draws is its cafe. Diners order at a counter, choosing from a selection of sandwiches, salads, omelettes, and more, and then can dine at a communal table.
