Many decadent pastries, creative breakfasts and numerous lunch / brunch choices. All choices prepared and served with panache. Lively atmosphere with inside or outside seating seating options. We'll worth the visit.

My husband and I went to Sugar and Scribe for breakfast and also to pick up some sweet treats for our upcoming road trip along the coast. Our breakfast (housemade granola and eggs benedict) was perfection. Every bite of every item just tasted fresh. We bought brownies, ginger cookies, and petit fours for our trip and each baked good was more delicious than the next. Aside from the great food and customer service, I just think this kind of consistency, where everything is exceptional, is rare. Indulge your sweet tooth and give this lovely bakery a try!

Just perfect Eggs Benedict, and the Lemon curd pancakes are better than any pancake I have ever tasted! Crispy on the edge, soft and delicious in the middle.

Visiting family in SD decided to come and try the famous La Jolla favorite spot for Sunday's brunch The Cottage. Put our name on the huge waiting list and while waiting decided to ealk around... next thing we know we literely crossed the road and walked in this bakery/pastry/coffee bar Sugar and Scribe. Had wonderful cappuccino with coconut milk instead to start. My Sligo Omelet was terrific and my partner had their famous Lemon Curd Pancakes. WoW!!!! When waiting a little to be seated( 5min instead 45min next door) i took some pictures, check them out!

Stopped by here for coffee and breakfast. Food took a long time and I did enjoy it bug found it to be a bit pricey.
