S and I haven’t been to a whole lot of brunch places ever since moving to San Diego. I guess we just haven’t been too impressed with most places, especially ones that get a lot of hype (e.g. The Cottage in La Jolla – sorry folks out there who are fans, but it just didn’t quite do it for me); add to that the long waits usually associated with weekend brunch, and we end up adding a bunch of brunch places to our bookmarks but not going to any of them…
However, we were recently invited to check out the brunch offerings at Table 926, a restaurant in the northern Pacific Beach area. I really do like PB even though driving there and parking isn’t always pleasant. Anyway, I was really curious about the place after looking at the menu, so S and I went to check it out!
I liked the interior decor; it was bright and simple. I’ve been really into chalkboard walls recently.
On the beverages menu, there are bellinis (seasonal flavors) and coffee & tea from Pannikin. I wasn’t quite feeling like alcohol that morning, so I went with a hot decaf. S chose iced. I love Pannikin coffee so I really enjoyed it.We placed our orders after perusing the food menu, and shortly after our server brought us this parfait to try, from the chef! S and I have been trying out tons of different Greek yogurt varieties lately (I think it started when Kirbie graciously invited us to a Chobani event), and we really enjoyed this parfait. The yogurt itself was thick and creamy but not too sweet, and the berry compote provided just enough sweetness. My favorite part was their granola, which was really crunchy and had pumpkin seeds! We were both quite curious about the breakfast empanadas.
