Joan's on Third

Over the weekend, my GF and I were shopping on Melrose and decided to check out Joan's. It was freakin hot as a mofo that day and finding parking was a major pain in the azz. Lucky for us, I spotted a street spot 2 blocks away.

I didn't know that Joan's was a store and bakery as well, so it was cool to be able to check out the goods. I took a pic of the cupcakes and the lady was like, "No pictures allowed" My bad. It's not like I'm gonna sell the pic to someone.. sheesh.

the pic I wasn't supposed to take

Sandwiches are pricey here. My tuna sandwich was $10! And it just came with some pickles. But, whatevs. It was a pretty damn good sandwich and it was ginormous. I was only able to eat half of it. The pickles were really good too.

My GF got the prosciutto sandwich and it was quite tasty as well. I prefer tuna though. After all, I am a cat.

I noticed that Joan's has a lot of rules. There was a sign by the cash register that said "Please finish your cell phone conversation before ordering". Ok.. Kinda random. I get that it's rude to be on the phone while ordering, but what if you are on the phone with someone who wants you to order something?

Anyways, the waiter was nice and pleasant. At least he seemed to enjoy his job. We sat outside in the shade which was nice when the breeze kicked it.

Since my GF has such a sweet tooth, she ordered a vanilla cupcake with raspberry filling. It was pretty, but I thought it was too sweet. Meh. I'm more into Angel Maid cakes.

Pretty lil cupcake

I'd come back, but Urth still reigns in my book.

I'm obsessed with the tuna salad and pickles at Joan's, but I buy the tuna separately in a container to go so I can make my own normal human sized sandwich with my own bread. $3 bucks instead of $10? Yes, please!

oh really?! thats a great idea, Diana! save $7, esp in this economy.
