I actually heard of this latest Solvang eatery from a client of mine, whose house guests were over the moon about it. And now I get it. In fact, the Succulent Cafe is to Solvang as Bell Street Farm is to Los Alamos. Really great food, all prepared in house, in a cool, rustic elegant setting. They have a fabulous array of charcuterie, again all house made, including the bacon, ham and fabulous tapenades and jams (like tomat0).
My guest and I had one of the most blogged about offering: Dave’s BBQ Meatloaf! OMG. My guest had the “sandwich” which was based in cornbread, with a pile of great meatloaf, topped with house-made bacon (incredible), pepperjack cheese and tomato jam. I had this in a salad, with very high quality baby greens, topped with the meatloaf and bacon etc, with cornbread kind of croutons and a lovely sherry vinaigrette.
I can go on and on, but I will let the lunch menu below speak for itself. Dinner is being served Thurs through Saturday 6pm-9pm; lunch Wed-Sun 11am-3pm; Breakfast Sat & Sun 9am-2pm. There is a predinner hour offering, perhaps catering to those who want a glass of wine and nibbles. Speaking of wine, they have a very nice selection of local varietals. Oh the phone: 805.691.9235.
No website as yet, but plenty of great reviews including the LA Examiner’s Cori Solomon and the most recent Food & Wine Mag.
I highly recommend this great spot. At last a restaurant in Solvang to pair with the many, many fine tasting rooms there.
