After picking up my packet and race info on Friday in Malibu my Mom and I made our way to Santa Monica for treats and shopping on Wilshire. There are several consignment stores very close to Huckleberry an awesome bakery and restaurant. The last time we tried to go to Huckleberry it was super busy and we only got out with a cookie, a very very good cookie. Obviously we went back for more.
Luckily it wasn’t as crowded at 3 on Friday. There were tons of open seats (a good study spot? I think so!) I was hard to pick out our treats because there were so many delectable options. We settled on salted caramel and a pear tart.
Salted caramel was really good. The caramel was cold and placed on a little pie crust. The salt flavor was good, not overwhelming. It really brought out the flavor in the caramel.
Next we tried the pear tart. What can I say, I have a pear dessert obsession.
Really good. This was served room temp but the puff pastry was crispy and played well off of the soft, slightly sugary pear. Excellent selections!
Overall, I loved what I had at Huckleberry. Their menu is chop full of farm fresh breakfast and lunch items so there will be a return trip. Shopping went well too! I got a new trench coat, ruffle top, eyelet dress and a Nanette Lapore silk top in a size 2. I know. I couldn’t believe it either. I blame it on the half marathon training.
Ok! Time to get ice cream and curl up on the couch for Modern Family. Hope you had a happy hump day!
JEALOUS! i tried to go on monday but they were closed. 😦
That is so sad. But good to know, I will not go on Monday!
The pear tart looks delicious! It makes me want to bake!
Enjoy Modern Family.
Haha, I totally read it as ‘salted caramel pear tart’ at first. How amazing would that be!?
btw, I LOVE Huckleberry! I don’t go often though because it gets so insanely crowded. Even something as simple as their yogurt with granola is so so delicious.
This place sounds amazing. I may force (beg?) you to go with me sometime!
Just name the day! I obviously need to sample everything on the menu!
Ahhh you got the salted caramel! My favorite sweet in the world! 🙂 Love love love Huckleberry!
