Sunday Brunch / Pastry Bar


Lemon ricotta pancakes, short rib hash, brioche French toast or smoked salmon BLT. Or maybe you prefer the fresh, house-made croissants, pastries and breakfast breads with house-made seasonal jams or the salmon smoked right in our own kitchen. And top it off with a selection of specialty coffee drinks. These are just a few of the reasons why NINE-TEN is La Jolla’s Sunday Brunch gathering place. And our special Pastry Bar served on Sundays is not to be missed. House-made seasonal specialties by our on-site pastry chefs include carrot cream cheese coffee cake, local berry muffins, spring onion & cheddar scones, banana walnut loaf and the renowned maple bacon buns.
