Where to Brunch This Weekend: Superba Food & Bread

When Superba Food & Bread opened in 2014, it was a boon to an otherwise food-devoid stretch of Lincoln Boulevard in Venice. It didn’t take too long for people to take notice of all the house-baked breads and pastries, the healthy foods, rotisserie meats, excellent wine list and coffee program, however. Especially for weekend brunch, which often sees lines out the door and plenty of people milling about the parking lot (that they even have one is amazing), waiting for their turn to fuel up on things like toast covered with cheesy soft scrambled eggs or kale, housemade granola, and warm grain bowls with jam, and linguiça and egg breakfast sandwiches.Seemingly standard dishes aren’t, like the Hangtown Fry, a classic of eggs, bacon, peppers and crispy fried oysters, or even the two-eggs-and-bacon plate that comes with a small pile of sauteed kale (it’s named Paul’s Big Boy Breakfast after owner Paul Hibler). There are plenty of savory, lunchable items like a fried chicken sandwich, Croque Madame, burger and salads. And even though opening chefs Jason Travi and Lincoln Carson are out of the equation, things haven’t changed much with the menu, which is why those lines aren’t too surprising — consistency works on many levels. Superba Food & Bread opens at 7 AM for coffee and pastries, with the brunch menu running 9 AM-4 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
