Executive Chef Maeve Rochford and her partner, local attorney and restaurateur Patrick Daniels offer a full-service bakery, fine foods emporium and gourmet-to-go.
Maeve’s vision for the new home of family-inspired recipes from the Emerald Isle was influenced by her grandmother Kate Ann, a cook (and quite a personality!) in England for Sir Patrick Brown, a barrister for King George VI. The menu will feature breakfast, lunch and dinner classics with tasty twists and a mix of daily special salads and meals that are inspired by the season’s fresh produce.
“I want the ambience of Sugar & Scribe Bakery and Fine Foods in La Jolla to be a place where I imagine a farmer enjoying his hearty lunch and a princess planning her dream wedding,” said Maeve.
A cake decorating station will be the major centerpiece of the layout and design so guests can watch the bakers work their magic in creating their sugar and buttercream masterpieces. A permanent resident of Sugar & Scribe Bakery and Fine Foods, Mr. Bug, Maeve’s dear old pug, will be welcoming his four-legged guests daily. All dogs are welcome.
The open, airy layout is a blend of the very best of classic and contemporary European design in a warm and comfortable scene, and features communal seating to meet your neighbors for a cup of coffee or to just sit and be entertained by the master cake decorators.
Maeve and Patrick have worked with Dianne Harsch of Studio Emphasis for the 2,800 square foot space. Throughout her career, Harsch’s focus has been to create spaces both modern and traditional that have a sense of timelessness. Harsch also designed Patrick’s successful Little Italy restaurants, Bencotto Italian Kitchen and Monello.Sugar & Scribe Bakery and Fine Foods 7660 Fay Avenue La Jolla, California 92137.
