Huckleberry, anyone?

I was so eager to check out Huckleberry Bakery, opened a few days ago by the husband and wife team behind Rustic Canyon. Got there are 10:30am for brunch: boy, the place was jammed pack, and it's only their first weekend brunch! The deco reminded me of M Chaya Cafe at Culver City, with communal tables on the left and small tables on the right, it was crowded and noise level was a bit on the high side.

The menu looked good: pancake, BLTA & Jidori Chicken caught my eye. Desserts looked good too. However, I was looking for a place to eat & read and this was not it. I grabbed a plain croissant & raisin scone to go. Croissant was good, flaky & crunchy - I prefer Amandine's & La Pain du Jour's, but this is pretty darn good. Raisin scone was good too: not the buttery, flaky apricot ginger scone from Clementine that I'm addicted to, but a hearty scone that will go down well with a glass of milk.

I wonder if anyone manage to have a proper brunch there? Please share your thoughts. I was a bit taken a back from the price: salads & sandwiches were in the $10-$12, comparable to Anisette, but that's not gonna stop me from going back.
