This post is way overdue! Earlier this summer we met up with our best friends (who we don’t get to see nearly enough due to all of us being in the trenches of parenthood currently) for a weekend breakfast. Scrambled Jake’s serves breakfast in the charming Rocky Hill community of Knoxville, located on Northshore drive near the intersection with Morrell Rd. The restaurant boasts handmade cinnamon rolls, freshly-chopped fruit salsa, from-scratch biscuits, and house-made bread for French toast and side dishes. Locals love the on-site juice bar and French press coffee as well.
Check out the menu online to browse all of the fun dishes on offer for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Whether you have savory or sweet fans in your party, no one will have a lack of options. Oh, and as a graphic design nerd, I totally love the layout of the menu itself. Nice work.
The French press coffee was delicious!
Scrambled Jake’s is known for their massive cinnamon roll, appropriately named the Sin-O-Man. The dough is made fresh overnight, and the finished dish is served coated in cream cheese icing and impaled with a huge steak knife. And it’s as big as my head. If this makes me a sinner, so be it.
Our party of 7 couldn’t pass up the opportunity to at least try this monster, and we only got through half of it between all of us. It was amazing! Gooey and soft on the inside with the crunchier bits on the outside, just like any great cinnamon roll should be.
But we had to order some real food too, of course. Matt ordered the Savory Crepes, house-made crepes filled with three cage-free scrambled eggs, gouda sausage, sautéed peppers and shallots. Baked with béchamel and manchego cheese and served with breakfast potato casserole. Yum, yum, yum, all the way around. The crepes had the right amount of bite from the sausage and peppers that was mellowed out by the bechamel and cheese.
I ordered the Club Frittata, made with three eggs, tomato confit, red onion, Duroc pit ham and shredded gruyere and served with breakfast potato casserole (that I substituted with grits). This is a HUGE frittata! My friend ordered the same thing and we agreed that we could have easily bought one to share and probably would have still had leftovers. You can’t see from the photo, but it’s super thick and that’s a giant dinner plate. It’s a protein-loaded meal that won’t leave you hungry, for sure, and it was delicious!
Our kids, as usual, just wanted “pancakes and syrup!” So, that’s what they got! The pancakes at Scrambled Jake’s are light and fluffy and they had no complaints.
If you haven’t tried Scrambled Jake’s and are looking for a new breakfast joint in West Knoxville, give it a go!
