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 Weekend Brunch gathering place. And our special Pastry Bar and $16 bottomless mimosas are 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 maple bacon buns.
