Joan’s on Third
Best Spot for a Breakfast Meeting, August 2014
While huge plates of flapjacks at the Griddle Cafe in Hollywood provide fine deal-making fuel, the informal formality of Joan’s on Third presents a less-pressured way to talk shop with your mouth full. A far cry from the packed-like-sardines environment that Joan McNamara’s institution becomes at weekend brunch, weekday mornings are more about quiet chats over espresso and croissants or—for serious business (and appetites)—scrambled eggs on toast or corned beef hash. It’s easy to focus on the matters at hand amid the low hum of registers warming up for the day.
