    Huckleberry is a casual upscale eatery in Santa Monica. Always save room for a dessert from the pastry counter: the seasonally-filled crostatas and fresh fruit tarts never fail to please.

    Santa Monica's most loved breakfast spot will probably have a long line & a longer wait for ur food to show up. Prepped food is pretty is good but ur better off jus snagging baked goods from the case

    The pastry case is filled with delicious treats such as croissants and doughnuts and scones, and you can't really go wrong with anything on the chalkboard menu. Read more

    Baked goods are phenomenal here, but that Bacon Cheddar Biscuit BAFFLES ME! It's crumbly and dry looking, but when you stick it in your MOUTH it's so good, more moist than you'd expect & SO addictive!

    I used to not like this place so much but have changed my mind. The breakfast burrito completely redeemed the place and wow the baked goods are delicious. Thumbs up!

    Peach custard tarts are amazing. Made with a real, not canned peach half. The pastry is croissant dough that is crispy and the bottom layer breaks off leaving you a butter saturated sheet. So good

    Be forewarned that it is perpetually crowded, especially on the weekends, when you might be better off picking up something to-go (like the rest of the Santa Monicans) and eating it curbside. Read more

    Try the brisket hash, or the green eggs and ham (pesto supplies the green, La Quercia prosciutto provides the ham). Read more

    Perpetually crowded for its maple-bacon biscuits, Valrhona chocolate–dipped doughnuts, and egg sandwiches stuffed with bacon, Gruyère, & tangy aioli. More places to eat like a local

    Eggs Sammy is crackalicious. We held off on the other egg sammy, and did the granola instead. Granola was bangin, but it ain't an egg sandwich, les-be-aaaaanest. *pour the homemade hot sauce on it all

    you'll think you want the fried egg sandwich. don't do it. you'll only wish you'd gotten the green eggs and ham. also, maple bacon biscuit, prosciutto gruyere croissant, and whole wheat scone.

    The fried egg sandwich bites you back with the flavor of the aioli and arugula. It's $10.50 and it doesn't look like it, but it's worth it. I'm still eating mine and I want another!

    If you're the kind of person to Instagram your food, and boast all day about the organic and non-gmo place you ate at, this is the place for you! Also, pre-made food. No modifications entertained.

    The line for their pastries & brunch is often out the door. I would wait in a line twice as long. Favorite bakery in all of LA.

    Free non-timed parking in the back by valet. Prepare for a 10-15 min wait on weekends. LOVED the duck hash! Check out the brunch menu it changes weekly!

    Delicious breakfast, quick turnaround. Be prepared to wait in a long line. Worth it. That evil counter though, ahh staring at all those goodies waiting to pay when you're starving, so cruel.

    Get the bread pudding no matter what you do. I have brought this on flights before for gifting purposes. It's worth it.

    If there was any café that was "so LA", this is it. The bakery and café uses organic and farmer's-market ingredients in all their delicious pastries and dishes.

    Skip the line for the best thing here: the pastries. Get whatever the cornmeal cake is that day, to go. Food is fine, but an egg on some frisée is never worth a wait or these prices.

    Try to go during the week- not nearly as busy as the weekend. Gluten free lemon pistachio cake was delicious. Salted Carmel Bar & crostata were also faves.

    A well-oiled machine -- you wander in and the line is long & the place is packed. However, the line moves fast, a table is always ready before your food, and the staff is pleasant. Delicious!

    Get ready to stand in line (but so worth it). However, if you're getting coffee and/or pastries, skip the line and go to the express register!

    If you like meat, briscuit hash is a must. More like a stew. All the baked goods are freshly-made exceptional, especially the tarts. There's a line but it moves quick. Among LA's top breakfast spots.
