Saint Marc Pub, Cafe, Bakery & Cheese Affinage is a bistro in Huntington Beach. It’s important to point out its full name because the place (the American arm of Japan’s Saint Marc Café) is trying to be all of those things. More accurately, Saint Marc feels as if someone wrangled the most interesting vendors from the LA Farmers Market, then sanitized them for your protection in a room that could double for a mall food court. There’s a coffee counter, a bakery counter and a cheese shop with a display case that's so crammed with cheese wheels it looks as if it's about to burst. There’s also a bar on the patio, a glass-enclosed kitchen and a wine-dispensing contraption that resembles a futuristic pipe organ.
