Milo and Oliveis a neighborhood bakery and pizzeria brought to you by the team behind Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry and Sweet Rose Creamery. Owned and operated by Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan, Milo and Olive serves a menu of fresh baked morning pastries and bread, wood fired pizzas, farmers market inspired salads and small plates in a very intimate and warm environment.
The bakery at Milo and Olive is another playground for Zoe to practice her ingredient driven style of rustic pastries and breads. The offerings at Milo and Olive will for the most part be different from those at Huckleberry, many focusing on using different grains in order to create the richest possible flavors. Milo and Olive also offers and extended menu of Zoe’s breads, from her classic Baguettes and Country Boules, to new breads like Green Olive, Lemon and Thyme, a Three Cheese Cheesebread, Whole Wheat Potato Bread, Homemade Bagels and much more.
The kitchen at Milo & Olive takes its love of local ingredients and rustic Italian cooking to the pizzeria menu. Using a dough crafted by Zoe, they make 8-10 different daily pizza offerings, focused on quality ingredients like locally made mozzarella, farmers market produce and sustainable meats. The menu also features ingredient driven small plates and salads to compliment the pizzas.
The wine and beer list at Milo and Olive is focused on small production bottlings made by winemakers and brewers who we love and trust. The list changes regularly and is focused on food friendly wines with enough character to properly compliment the menu. We are proud at Milo and Olive to have an open kitchen because we love the way it welcomes our guests into our restaurant. We’d always dreamed of a place where people can come in the morning and eat a pastry and drink great coffee while reading the paper and watching the kitchen staff roast their vegetables, braise their meats and prepare for the days service. Welcome to Milo and Olive. Relax and let us feed you.

Our lovely seaside city was named a winner in the first-ever Bloomberg Philanthropies' Mayors Challenge, with an idea Santa Monica Mayor Pam O'Connor called a "game-changer." As one of four runners-up in the nationwide competition, the city will receive the award as seed money to develop its "Wellbeing Project." Through the Mayors Challenge, cities were invited to propose their most innovative solutions to entrenched problems. The five solutions with the greatest potential for success will win funding to turn those ideas into reality. Santa Monica answered this call to action with what we believe is the greatest, most challenging and pressing issue of all: protecting and promoting human wellbeing. Specifically, how can cities use limited resources more effectively to create conditions needed for people to thrive?
To learn more about this inspired project please visit www.smgov.net/wellbeing or become a fan of the project on facebook.
