Eat in Santa Monica: The Veranda


Scottish Smoked Salmon Platter with tomatoes, cucumber, pickled red onion, capers, spring radish, hardboiled egg, bagel, and herbed cream cheese

My mom took me out to a birthday breakfast at The Veranda, the restaurant inside The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica, for the first time last week.

Since it was a special occasion (although any occasion would do), I ordered lox. Specifically, I tried the Scottish Smoked Salmon Platter with tomatoes, cucumber, pickled red onion, capers, spring radish, hardboiled egg, bagel, and herbed cream cheese. It was excellent as expected. We also got refilling cups of coffee, which caffeinated me and then some.

Besides the spot-on brunch menu, I'd also recommend visiting The Veranda because of the ocean view of the Santa Monica beach below. Seriously.

If you've visited The Veranda recently, what do you recommend trying?

Eat in Santa Monica: Blue Daisy Café


Cuban Sandwich made with ham, roasted pork, Dijon mustard, pickles, grilled onions, bell peppers, and pepper jack cheese, served with Parmesan fries

I tried Blue Daisy Café, located on Broadway and 6th in Santa Monica, while catching up with old friends last week. It was our first visit to this über-hip brunch spot, which boasts as many brunch options as it does a line out the door.

I enjoyed the Cuban Sandwich, which was made with ham, roasted pork, Dijon mustard, pickles, grilled onions, bell peppers, and pepper jack cheese, and served with Parmesan fries. The sandwich had a lot of flavor and all the ingredients complemented the meat well. I would definitely order it again.
