Eat: Huckleberry Bakery and Cafe

Two words: Salted Carmel.

I know my last post was about my new exercise ball and a renewed quest to determine the existence of any personal abdominal strength, but...if there's a legitimate reason to fall off the fitness wagon, the Huckleberry Bakery and Cafe in Santa Monica, California is it.

Surrender, Dorothy.

It's hard to know where to start...whole wheat shortbread cookies dusted with sugar? Mini chocolate dipped donuts? Scones? Croissants? Or of course, an actual meal (the warm-up act for dessert)?

First, you'll line up at the counter to place your order -don't worry about the wait, it will give you time to decide; change your mind; then change your mind again.

Once you've made a commitment and paid at the register, find a seat at one of the simple wooden tables with red-painted cafe chairs and put your order number on the holder provided.

Featuring locally-sourced farmer's market produce, hormone/antiobiotic-free meat and dairy and fresh baked breads and pastries, Huckleberry is the love child of a made-for-Romcom-romance baked in foodie heaven. Meet cute: Zoe Nathan met Josh Loeb when she took a job at his award winning restaurant, Rustic Canyon Wine Bar and Seasonal Kitchen. However, where a movie would have ended with the proposal, the story in real life continues.
The husband and wife team now own and operate, not only Rustic Canyon, but also Huckleberry Bakery and Cafe, Sweet Rose Creamery, and Milo & Olive.

All of the restaurants have been lauded in the press, including the Huckleberry Bakery and Cafe. Travel + Leisure Magazine raves, "Huckleberry takes the prize for L.A.'s best breakfast!" Angeleno Magazine writes, "Zoe Nathan pushes the boundaries of what it means to be a pastry chef." Los Angeles Magazine reports simply, "A Star (sandwich) is born."

Of course, the most important review of all is always your very own. Let me know what you order --and whatever you do, don't leave without dessert!
