Bergamot Cafe

Stan | Aug 15, 2004 08:28 PM

I went to Bergamot Station, which is a bunch of art galleries in Santa Monica near Cloverfield and the I-10, and ate lunch at the cafe there. I got the turkey and cranberry sandwich on focaccia. It was good because cranberries are always good. The major difficulty with it had to do with engineering. The focaccia, while perfectly good on its own, was hard to bite through, a little cardboardy. This meant that attempts to take a bite of the sandwich mostly caused turkey and cranberries to extrude from the side. So it required some improvisation to eat. I also got there something called an apple cobbler bar which was very good to excellent, not spiced like an apple pie but more a vehicle for the good apple taste to come through. I'm not sure that the Bergamot Cafe is anyone's destination restaurant, but if you're going to the art galleries then it seems like a chow-worthy place to get lunch.
