This weekend after a little jog (a prenatal-friendly jog), and trip to the farmer’s market in Santa Monica, we stopped by Huckleberry for some take away bread and treats.
The line was huge so I took a few photos while we waited. The space has such nice light and lots of little details, very hard to resist when the camera is near.
I should first say that we’ve never actually had a meal at Huckleberry. We’re in the habit of picking things up to take home so I can’t properly review their food. But I always get this roasted carrot salad and it’s never that good. The idea is there… roasted carrots with cumin, avocado, and cilantro… but the flavor isn’t. Poor carrot salad. I actually bought carrots at the market so I could make my own version. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
HOWEVER the white bean dip we tried this time was delish. And their country boule is really lovely. And their scones are good and buttery. Apparently it’s loosely inspired by Tartine (where Zoe, the co-owner learned to bake), a very necessary stop on our Bay Area road trip. Soooo excited.
One of these weekends were going to get there early enough to avoid the brunch crowd and actually have breakfast.
And now that the baby news is out, here’s the belly progress so far…
Just slightly obscuring the laces… But after dinner it’s quite a different story.
