Duke’s La Jolla

La Jolla, California provides something for everyone. Most people know about the town’s incredible beauty and endless outdoor fun, but the amazing food is what stitches the community together.

A One-of-a-Kind Restaurant

Duke’s is named for Duke Kahanamoku, a native Hawaiian who is often considered the father of surfing. The first way that Duke’s La Jolla honors his incredible legacy is by cooking up unique interpretations of Hawaiian and Californian cuisine. There is no better way to start your weekend mornings that with the weekend breakfast served from 8 am to 12 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Start off with the freshest juice or coffee in town and move on to some island favorites like banana macnut pancakes, acai bowls, or the Beach Boy Breakfast Burrito with kalua pork, scrambled eggs, black beans, pico de gallo, and chipotle salsa.

This is also the best place for your midday refuel, with lunch, served every day from 11 am to 3 pm. Start with something for the group like the fresh calamari, crab cakes, wings, Korean Sticky Ribs, and much more. On to the main event for lunch, you will find fresh salads, incredible seafood dishes, and some stuff for the mainlanders. Arugula salads, vegetarian red curry, and sautéed macnut & herb crusted fresh fish are among the favorites here.

For dinner, you will find an expanded lunch menu featuring more specialty dishes like the Dijon rubbed filet mignon. Find an amazing take on the classic New York strip, as this one is crusted with Kona coffee. And while you are at Duke’s you need to try the banana leaf steamed fish and shrimp.
