FROM THE HEART
At Jan’s we strive daily to promote a place where people can enjoy healthy food and a sense of community we are inspired by our generations of loyal customers. Daily options include fresh juices and smoothies, sandwiches, soups, salads, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. We are committed to serving affordable fresh, high quality food with clean ingredients prepared in a simple manner.
Jan’s was established in 1972 in George’s Surf Shop, Jan Gaffney’s sandwiches and smoothies became ritual to the surf community and Huntington Beach residents.
As a Sophmore at Huntington Beach High School, Poppy found her very first job at Jan’s over 20 years later, she purchased the Huntington Beach institution and is dedicated to carrying on the rich tradition of nourishing the cravings of generations living in the local community or passing through.
As a previous employee, customer and now owner I have witnessed the value of a fresh food-filled menu and the positive influence Jan’s has had on the community. The stories and memories our customers share about eating at Jan’s inspire me on a daily basis.
My mission is to make fresh high quality food accessible to everyone, while offering a one-stop-shop to grab something delicious and healthy on the go.
We always use fresh, locally sourced (when available) ingredients and make sure that every item on our menu contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Our philosophy for a healthy lifestyle at Jan’s and even at home with our own kids has always been moderation not deprivation. If you want to have a scoop of ice cream in your smoothie, side of chips with your sandwich, or even a cookie we say indulge, but the one thing we can guarantee is that the items we have on our menu are in their purest form with natural ingredients. We say it’s okay to indulge once in awhile and then get back to that ever inspiring journey of living a balanced, active and healthy life. Our philosophy is not revolutionary but is something Jan’s Health Bar has stayed true to for over 40 years.
