    The prosciutto-stuffed croissants & flaky bacon-maple biscuits are sublime! It gets crowded on Sunday mornings so go early! Featured at PLATE LA Weekly's 5th Annual Food & Wine Event March 3rd, 2013! Read more

    Fantastic food, organic, tasty and pretty:) Great service, when they accidentally mixed up my order it was corrected in two minutes and I was given passion fruit meringue tart on the house as well!

    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.

    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

    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

    For the breakfast burrito, the pride of the whole concoction is the Niman Ranch bacon, served wide and deep, with a sweet and smoky taste to every bite. Read more

    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

    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!

    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 tandl.me/12ufz7c

    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

    Serves all sorts of egg sandwiches alongside items like the house-cured salmon platter, Green eggs & ham with La Quercia prosciutto, pesto & arugula on English muffin, and house made granola Read more

    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!

    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

    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.

    Zoe Nathan & Josh Loeb have amazing pedigrees (she hails from Tartine Bakery, he runs Rustic Canyon Wine Bar and Seasonal Kitchen) and it shows in their excellent artisan breads and incredible sweets.

    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.

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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Get here early, they don't accept reservations. Bakery items are amazing. Sandwiches are the best I've ever had. The breads are incredible. Favorite for Santa Monica.

    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 pastries, bread, and baked goods are great, as are the sandwiches, like the now-famous fried egg sandwich topped with arugula and a slab of bacon.

    the fried egg sandwich is delicious. runny fried egg, Niman Ranch bacon, Gruyere, arugula and aioli. a bacon egg and cheese review from a NYer goes a long way

    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!

    The turkey sandwich with tillamook cheese has the most perfect bread. It will change your mind about wheat. Get it sans the sliced grapes though

    Get here early to beat the lunch rush. My favorite is the beet and burrata salad but make sure you try the bread!

    Huckleberry's bread pudding is phenomenal. Bread pieces + chocolate + banana slices + walnuts = the best treat in the world.

    If you can get past the tempting sweets, go savory with brisket hash, breakfast sandwich or green eggs and ham.

    If you don't feel like waiting in line on the weekends, call in your order and just enjoy it on a bench overlooking the beach on Ocean and Wilshire.

    The bread pudding here is insane. Ask them to warm it for you. The fried egg arugula breakfast sandwich will rock your socks.

    Came back and had some awesome poached eggs over grilled veggies.
