The best word to describe Bar Joanet with is simplicity. However, there can be a lot inside such a word. Sometimes the only thing you need is a reasonably priced coffee in a good quiet place where you can get warm in the morning sun. Or a simple weekend lunch, with roasted chicken and a good vermouth or a very cold beer. If that is the case, this is what you are looking for.
I like that Joanet is quite close to many interesting things in the city without being in the middle of the fuss. You could say it’s almost anonymous. No extras: just a lot of people sitting down and talking, specially during the weekends, to have a comfortable lunch.
I often see couples with young children eating there – it’s a good option because Joanet is located in a small plaza that is somehow easy to watch. So children can wander a little bit, and you can keep an eye on them while you finish your coffee – be it a cortado (espresso with a little milk) or a carajillo (espresso with some liquor – your choice).
Rest in the view of the trees and the comfort of a simple, almost home made meal. And also, good coffee, all morning long. From 13:00 to 16:00, only full meals are served (that means that no lingering for only coffee is allowed). The rest of the time you’re welcome while they’re open.
