Nathan's cafe and bakery in Santa Monica, California, is a homey, adventurous spot, offering a breakfast-and-brunch-like menu that spans a range from zippy three-cheese rye biscuits and persimmon spice cake to a cherry tomato and goat cheese cobbler and a fried green tomato, bacon, and spicy slaw tartine. In addition to her appealing recipes, Nathan shares her advice on tweaking recipes from other sources (add salt! double the vanilla!). Very approachable and fresh.
