Joans on Third (LV's LA)

I believe in love. I know you do too. There are some places that are, well, how do I say it? How about love at first bite. Yes, Joans on Third is a food lovers paradise. This cute little spot is an ultra posh deli, cafe and gourmet marketplace all in one. It is very reminiscent of Dean and Deluca in New York. Or if you have never been to Dean and Deluca, imagine if Williams Sonoma had a deli, restaurant and bakery inside of it.

Fresh salads, unique and flavorful salads, great coffee and mouthwatering desserts. This place has it all. I love taking my son to some of my favorite places and this is a place that is appropriate to take a child. The casual vibe makes it great to take a little one and the outdoor seating is great for relaxing under an umbrella of California sunshine. My son now loves Joans on Third as much as I do. This spot is one I have enjoyed for many years. There is always something delicious to try, but some of my favorites are: the chinese chicken salad, short rib sandwich. mac n cheese and many of the seasonal roasted vegetables.

Their short rib grilled cheese sandwich is the stuff dreams are made of. Crispy buttery grilled bread, tender shortribs, caramelized onions, arugula and cheese. Oh, you don't eat meat? me neither. Okay, I do every once in a while. This short rib sandwich made me cheat on my poultry and seafood. This is worth the occasional splurge and you can try the plethora of rainbow colored salads to make you feel less guilty.
 This is perfect any time of day. Breakfast, lunch,dinner.

This delicious salad corn, jicama and lots of fresh herbs and edamame was delicious.

Check out these veggies in the display case

So much to choose from

Roasted carrots

There is an amazing selection of artisan cheeses

Refreshing lemonade!

And this is what I had. The short rib grilled cheese

This sandwich is so good
 I have been enjoying the food here since the mid 1990's and now I get to bring my son here:-)

Another happy customer

 If you are not too stuffed after your meal, head on over to the dessert counter and grab some treats to take home, or you can purchase it before your meal arrives.

Every sweet treat you can imagine. Don't these cream puffs look delicious?

If you are in West Hollywood, check out this cute little eatery. You will find lots of fresh vegetable dishes, salads and probably any craving you have will be satisfied here.

Be sure to grab a fresh baguette on the way out:-)

The food looks amazing and your son apparently enjoy his time there. Hopefully when I visit California one day I'll get to meet and fell in love with Joan as well.
