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.

Cheddar scallion scone at Mariposa Bakery in CambridgeMariposa 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, in this case, cheddar scallion.

It's early in the season so I'll be kind, this was an entirely adequate scone. Not very cheesy, not very oniony, and a bit underdone in the middle. Buttery but not so flaky. If it were a madeline, it would remind you of a waiting room, and definitely need to be dipped in some tea.

I still love Mariposa and will be back, perhaps to sample a cheese sandwich next time.
