After nearly a decade in Encinitas, Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizza has just started serving breakfast. The popular eatery, which debuted in the Lumberyard Shopping Center in 2010, is now open daily starting at 8 a.m. From 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., chef/owner Wade Hageman is serving a menu of wood fired breakfast sandwiches to complement his farm-to-table pizzas which are offered at lunch and dinner. Priced at $8, they include a fried egg, organic arugula, and fillings that range from smoked bacon and marinated tomatoes to fig compote and herbed mascarpone. Carlsbad bakery Prager Brothers Artisan Bread, which got its start back in 2012 by borrowing Blue Ribbon’s wood fired oven, will be providing the freshly baked bread.

The coffee menu will be powered by Encinitas roastery Ironsmith Coffee Roasters, with co-founder Matt Delarosa roasting Blue Ribbon’s own blend of Brazilian beans. Among the speciality coffee drinks is a butterscotch-flavored sipper inspired by the eatery’s signature butterscotch pudding dessert. There are also housemade pastries, plus Bloody Marys and mimosas.
