Savory Scone Update: Mariposa

Getting back to basics and spending more time in the 02139, I dropped in at Mariposa Bakery and got reacquainted with my old friend, the savory scone. Mariposa offers several scones on some kind of rotation, but I always gravitate to the savory (try their pretzel rolls!) which usually means some combination of cheese and allium,…

Savory Scone Update: Goat at 3 Little Figs

Did you know that buttery pastries can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration?  You probably didn't know that because it's probably not true, but that didn't stop me from picking up a savory scone at 3 Little Figs on Somerville's Highland Avenue on the way to see my eye doctor.  Hey, it's not as…

Savory scone update: Sherman

Running errands I found myself back at Sherman Cafe in Union square. I've liked the place since they opened, but there have been some ups and downs in quality over the years. We're definitely in an up right now, and have been for a while according to local bakery maven J. They've eliminated the raised…

Savory scone update

Not too long ago, I was craving a good savory scone, and when I couldn't find any in local shops, a good friend went ahead and made some, which were most excellent. Yesterday, I was at the Wine & Cheese Cask, possibly Somerville's best wine shop, looking for some crisp whites the fried chicken wine…

Savory scones behind the scenes

If you've been following me on twitter (or in person for that matter, but that would be even weirder) you know that I've been craving a good savory scone. Heck, I would have settled for a bad one. I stuck out at several local outlets, but my craving was picked up by a good friend…
