Crowded but Excellent

If possible do take out or eat outside. This place gets very crowded and noisy but the food is excellent.

This was recommended by a great friend. Early Saturday hustle and bustle was just wonderful to experience. Had the best huevos rancheros I have ever had!! Simply amazing flavor and quality. An added bonus, homemade fresh and delectable desserts and treats to indulge in.

I had the fried egg sandwich for breakfast here, and it was one of the best breakfasts I had in Santa Monica. A very busy cafe so could be difficult at times to get seating and a little pricey too. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Brunch Review: Having tried everything on the menu. I'll tell you my favorites. I loved the fried egg sandwich, breakfast burrito, croque madame, chopped romaine salad, and their niman ranch pastrami reuben is the best reuben I've ever had and that's including Katz deli's reuben in NYC. Both the beef bristket hash and duck confit hash are also good. If... More

Between the menu items, the bakery treats laid out for maximum temptation and all the great looking sandwiches and salads and vegetables - it's overwhelming! Our first visit, I ordered a salad with chicken, and I loved it. Portion was generous, flavor and freshness perfect. Our table ordered a couple of deserts to have a bite of, and I especially...

We enjoyed the bike ride from our hotel up the street to find the Huckleberry Cafe. I must admit it was actually the name that captured my attention first. But the flavor and the food quickly followed. * Good breakfast * Good coffee

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! What a perfect place for a late brunch on a Sunday afternoon! I am not a huge lentil fan and I fell in love with their curried lentil salad which had the perfect amount of sour and spicy. I also ordered fried eggs on the side and they came out perfect. My husband ordered their Croque madam... More

My first time was a simple to-go order at breakfast. Still can't get that oatmeal out of my mind! Luscious, thick creamy steel cut oats with almonds and slices of caramelized apple. Poppy seeds added just a little extra crunch. Just excellent. I also ordered a baguette from their bakery to eat later. That too, excellent! There's a really nice... More

This was our last stop before the airport and I am so pleased we made the detour! The restaurant was bright and airy, the staff were super friendly and nice, the food just divine. Enjoyed our visit so much I brought the cookbook back home so I can try to replicate our experience. If you love breakfast, you must visit.... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
