Emblazoned on one wall of this new café is a line by Mark Twain’s most cheeky fictional character, the vagabond Huckleberry Finn.
“There ain’t nothing in the world so good when it’s cooked right,” said the lovable rascal.
Huckleberry Food & Fare gives a nod to this philosophy by preparing its victuals with extra vigilance. Take, for instance, a seemingly simple matter such as serving juice. While most cold drinks get watered down long before you’ve reached your last sip, their freshly-made Red Velvet, a blend of red fruit juices, remained cold and sweet when we tried. The trick? Each made-to-order juice is bottled sans ice and submerged in a miniature ice bucket. Such thoughtfulness extends to hot beverages: Milk can be swapped for almond milk if lactose intolerance runs in the family.
Feeling peckish? Head to the mouth-watering pastry and cake counter where your little ones can take their pick of sandwiches and sweets. For something more substantial, choose from brunch favourites including French toast, eggs Benedict and baked eggs.
All pastries and cakes are baked onsite, and patrons can watch the magic happen in Huckleberry’s open concept bakery. Press your nose up against the glass partition to observe the bakers kneading dough and tossing ingredients together.
We found the servers extremely friendly and more than happy to pull up a high chair for your toddler, or a funny face to entertain them.
