“Went every day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited for breakfast every day of our four day vacation in Santa Monica. WOW, this is the best, freshest and most deliciously prepared food anywhere. Try the lentil ragu for brunch and any of the breads and desserts. Oh, coconut macaroon, I dream about you! And the staff couldn't be nicer.

“Green eggs and ham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We arrived early on a Wednesday morning and by the time it opened the doors that was already a big line of people coming in. It totally deserves the hype as both the food - green pesto eggs on a toasted bread with Parma ham and rocket salad - and coffees were great. Ah, the orange juice is superb too.

“You're in Hollywood baby, everything's fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

This non-descript, no special ambiance breakfast hangout is superb! You won't believe how loud it gets, but that's most likely due to all the writers and agents talking about their latest projects for network and cable TV! The food is excellent, the prices are not cheap, and the cornbread blueberry cake is one of the most delicious coffee cakes I've ever tasted. Easy to get a seat before 8am (writers sleep a little later than the rest of us).

“Fantastic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Whenever we go to visit Cali my girlfriend and I always make a trip to Huckleberry Cafe. This is a great place for breakfast(at least for us), the line can be intimating but the selection of patisseries is superb! The ambiance is cozy and romantic for brunch time. The location is great to, walking distance to the beach.

“Approachable and Outstanding : Farm fresh and inventive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Huckleberry Cafe is the most excellent local find in Santa Monica in years. The casual restaurant calls on patrons to order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. The choices are fresh and varied. Dishes include hearty poached eggs with beef hash and arugula, huevos rancheros which are delicate and incredible, lentils with eggs and Swiss chard and countless enticing baked goods like cornmeal blueberry coffee cake, scones, cookies and coffee cakes plus rustic breads and a most excellent croque monnsieur .
If you're a fan of great coffee you will certainly feel at home here, tucked at a table with a steaming fresh latte or cappuccino expertly made by the experienced and friendly staff.

I am anxious to return for lunch and try a whole array of options - but just as an excuse to follow it with one of the delicious desserts from the ever tempting bakery display.
