Accompanied by a gentle rain, Thyme Cafe & Market opened today in Santa Monica in all of its Restoration Hardware splendor. Those who find Huckleberry pricey will appreciate the affordable tarifs with my tarragon chicken salad sandwich on toasted walnut raisin bread with a small salad for $8, as well as daily specials for $7.95 that come with your choice of a combination of 1/2 sandwich, soup or salad, and one of their delicious homemade cookies. In addition to a chuncky chocolate chip cookie for $1.25, we sampled the coconut cream and carrot cupcakes, both excellent for $3.25. Other sandwiches included a Gruyere grilled cheese for $5 and steak with watercress, caramelized onions and horseradish aioli on a baguette for $9. By the time we left at 12:45pm there was a wait for tables. Quality is high here and Thyme enters the market place vying for a place along side Clementine's, Amandine, Joan's and the aforementioned Huckleberry. If today is any indication, they should have no problem getting there.
