The Proof is in the Pancakes

Like a perfectly timed Irish soda bread, Chef Maeve Rochford of La Jolla’s Sugar and Scribe Bakery rose to national prominence last year after winning the Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship.

Her incredible desserts may have secured her the competition’s $50,000 grand prize, but locals are also flocking to the Fay Avenue bakery to experience one of best brunches in San Diego. Sugar and Scribe’s brunch menu features an irresistible selection of savory breakfast items, coffee and Champagne-based pairings.

Chef Maeve’s Lemon Curd Pancakes served with orange cardamom syrup and seasonal berries are a fan favorite and earned the distinction of Locale Magazine‘s “Game Changer of Pancakes”. Another fan favorite are her Benedicts - specifically, her eggs Benedict with prosciutto. It features an unbelievable balance of savory flavors. Pair them with one of Sugar and Scribe’s mimosas, Bellinis or Bloody Marys for the perfect complement to an already delicious meal.

Stop in for brunch and see why The La Jolla Light rated Sugar and Scribe as the best new restaurant in La Jolla.

Sugar and Scribe is located at 7660 Fay Avenue in La Jolla.
