Can it be we've gone two years without a Savory Scone Update? Well, let me assure you, I have not gone two years without a savory scone, that's for sure. My new local spot, Dwell Time in Cambridge, offers a nice scone selection, including more than one savory option! At my first visit, I tried the whole wheat bacon scallion scone, pictured blog right.
It was small, but that's not a bad thing since your average scone is 105% butter and has more calories than you'l burn in a lifetime of sitting in coffee shops writing blogs. It was on the crumbly slide, as opposed to the sometimes chewy type of scone. Visible bacon bits, a good sign for sure. It most certainly hit the spot. Highly recommended.
At a later visit, I tried the Goat Cheese Scallion Scone. I must say the goat cheese was subtle, and that's not the vibe I usually get from goat cheese. But here's what sets this scone apart: the scallion was actually visible and tastable, like it is in the better scallion pancakes you can sometimes get in Chinese restaurants, or , if you're super lucky, in the homemade kind.
A touch of spring onion-ness and buttery goodness. I don't think I'll ever go back to sweet scones.
