Food for Thought: Superba Food+Bread

IMG_1314IMG_1319IMG_1322FullSizeRender

Talk about a place that has it all – inventive food, excellent service, laid-back atmosphere, hip local vibe – Superba Food+Bread (yes I’m about to go there) is superb-a.

We took Irene here for an early breakfast to kick off her festivities-filled Mother’s Day and it was a hit from start to finish: service was spot-on and our server gifted Irene with a house-made bag of granola to mark the special day at the end of the meal.

All of our uniquely-conceived dishes were equally delicious, including a Croque Madame featuring the sunnyside egg set into the top of the bread and boasting a smoked ham, gruyere and tomato bechamel mix, and a “Hangtown Fry” with soft scrambled eggs, mushrooms, onions, bacon, potatoes, chilis and a crispy oyster.

We sat at a corner banquette (the space is divided into indoor/outdoor dining areas separated by a garage door) with an outward view of all the action going on under the high, exposed-beam ceiling; for guests on the go, there’s a baked goods-filled case along the south side of the restaurant where they can quickly choose a baked-on-premises item, grab a cup of coffee and park themselves at communal seating in the front instead of getting table service.

Locals from the neighboring sidestreets must love walking over to this cool spot (there’s also another location at The Point in El Segundo).
