Where to Eat in Santa Monica: Huckleberry Cafe

I flew into Los Angeles earlier this week for work, and before I slogged down to Anaheim, I met a friend for lunch at Huckleberry Cafe in Santa Monica.

I'd always heard it was great and it exceeded my expectations. The menu for lunch is simple sandwiches and salads that are almost fully locally sourced. I was trying to be healthy, so I pounced on the Kale Caesar Salad. It was. Great mix of greens and Parmesan - and I loved that the dressing came on the side. (I hate a too-wet-salad!)

Even though lunch was satisfying, we couldn't resist a return trip for dessert. I mean look at this summer strawberry tart! I was also drooling over the merengue lemon blueberry parfait, the strawberry donut and the ricotta peach salad.

I'll be back for that brunch too.

Huckleberry Cafe is located at 1014 Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica, CA. Follow them on Twitter at @HuckCafe and try their other restaurants.
