Candy apple pancakes, Winter Harvest Benedict on new menu at Snooze in Del Mar Highlands Center

Snooze, an AM Eatery in Del Mar Highlands Town Center, is whipping up wintertime flavors such as candy apple pancakes and a twist on eggs benedict featuring San Diego’s own Susie’s Farm veggies.

The seasonal special Winter Harvest Benny features sweet potato polenta cakes topped with griddled sweet potatoes, fennel, kale hash and cream cheese hollandaise. The Candy Apple Pancakes have caramelized apples and are topped with caramel apple glaze, whipped mascarpone and a sprinkle of spiced pie crumble.

The breakfast dishes can be washed down with a latte, a local craft beer or even a MMM MMM Mimosa made from Evolution sparkling wine, Odwalla OJ and Pama Pomegranate Liquor.

Snooze has built a diehard following across Colorado, Arizona and California, thanks to its from-scratch, creative approach to traditional breakfast and brunch favorites, served all day long. Plus, each location features Snooze’s signature bold, colorful atmosphere and retro-futuristic décor, and offers free coffee and games of cornhole to anyone waiting for a table.

The restaurant also has a commitment to sustainability, incorporating as much responsibly grown food as possible, and recycling and composting 80 to 90 percent of its waste. In Del Mar, this includes using greater San Diego favorites such as organic veggies from the family-owned Susie’s Farm, as well as foods from Bread and Cie Bakery and Jackie’s Jams.

Snooze heavily integrates with charities, giving back 1 percent of sales annually, and plans to partner with local organizations such as Helen Woodward Animal Shelter, the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation and the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy.

Snooze Del Mar is open from 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.,Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call 858-703-5300 or visit
