Last week I wrote about one of the best desserts I’ve ever had, the glorious Caramel Chocolate Brioche Pudding at Huckleberry in Santa Monica (review here). Well, that wasn’t the only thing that I tried that day. You think I can see a dessert display like Huckleberry’s and only buy one treat? Ha! Here’s the lovely trio of desserts that I tried. The Bread Pudding, the Salted Caramel Square, and the Fruit Pastry.
Now, fellow food blogger DianaTakesaBite claims that the Salted Caramel Bar is her favorite treat at Huckleberry. While I would agree that the buttery, caramel square is a high note, it is not quite the symphony that the Caramel Chocolate Bread Pudding is. Still, this intensely flavorful bar is a legitimate 5-cherry winner.
That said, I actually preferred this Fruit Pastry with it’s sweet, fresh peaches, and yep, you guessed it, Buttery pastry bed. Clearly, Butter is a favorite ingredient over at Huckleberry Cafe. Hey, no complaints here.. except um, for the fact that I’m still trying to shed those last 5 lbs from wedding festivities. Eeg. I just couldn’t pass on these desserts though!
Good thing I don’t live on the west side anymore. I shall reserve Huckleberry Cafe and Bakery for special occasions!
