Rating: Fantastic gourmet shop & cafe
Another father/son morning rolled around and after a most enjoyable trip to the Peterson Automotive Museum (excellent boy fun) we headed over to Joan’s on Third.
The busy Third Street shop front is pretty much an institution. This is a combined cafe, gourmet shop, and bakery.
You can pretty much bet on seeing celbrities, or at the very least lots of the beautiful people.
There is a good amount of outside seating.
Cappuccino of course.
My son went for the pancakes.
I had this grown up egg mcmuffin type sandwich. Buttered bread, egg, cheese, and of course, bacon!
Joan’s has some of the best cupcakes around and these are two of my favorites. Coconut and snickers!
It’s worth showing the interior spaces. We have all sorts of really good (but overpriced) gourmet products.
Fresh baked goods.
And even more baked goods. I only photoed a small sampling. Joan has really good taste. There may be a mark up, but there is some serious yummy going on here. That’s what impresses me the most, the general extremely high level of culinary quality of most stuff. The prices can be a shock though.
We’ve used them for catering too. They have all sorts of delicious salads, quiches, and whatnots.
