Turkey Pasilla Scramble @ Savoy Café

Turkey Pasilla Scramble @ Savoy Café
Matt Kettmann

Better known and heavily frequented as a lunch spot for salads, soups, sandwiches, and special hot entrées, Savoy Café — which is a longtime favorite of our newspaper’s staff, being just a block away — also offers a rather extensive breakfast menu, so you can start off the day with its healthy-minded, sustainability-nodding cuisine, as well. This scramble appears way bigger than the two eggs that are advertised, thanks to sizable scraps of turkey and gooey strands of cheese that pack protein and just enough milk fat into every bite. The pasilla, however, is what brings welcome lightness to the load, giving herbal, peppery depth to the dish. On the side are either greens or potatoes, plus their “campfire toast,” which is baked in town and best with whatever fruit preserves are on hand. Like most of Savoy Café’s not-so-cheap offerings — we get it; real food costs real money — this is not a bargain breakfast at $14. But unless you’ve got a massive appetite, you’ll probably be able to skip lunch, so it’s a pretty good deal after all. 24 W. Figueroa St.; (805) 962-6611; thesavoycafe.com.
