Best Scone in Pasadena Area??

wcab06 May 15, 2007 10:57 AM

I'm looking for the best Scone. I love scones, something about the crumbly buttery goodness. I was at the farmers market in pasadena over the weekend and I thought, ohhh, scones, so I bought a package from the bread guy. I went to the park with my son and we opened them up, and YUCK. My son actually spit his out, I could not even finish one bite. So then it go tme thinking that I really needed a good scone. I went to Euro Pane yesterday and got the 3 berry - YUM! But I'm wondering where else?? Any thoughts?

    Most authentic and delicious English cream scones - only one place - Rose Tree Cottage in Pasadena. They have them packaged to take home. The proprietor will even tell you exactly at what temp to re-heat and for how long. That's how serious and proud they are of the scones. Be warn - these are traditional English scones. Not "Americanized".

      Julienne's on Mission St. in San Marino has the best currant scones. I LOVE them. Have not found any better around here.

        I liked the scones from Heirloom Bakery in South Pasadena

          I have yet to make it there - but whenever I talk 'tea' with people - they always rave about the scones at the Four Seasons Tea Room in Sierra Madre. I believe you can order scones a la carte.

            Try Julienne in San Marino.

              I have to agree. Julienne's scones remind me very much of the scones from the Cheeseboard up in Berkeley. Julienne's are my favorites.

              Look for the gal who makes chocolates at the PHS Saturday farmers' market. I like her ginger scones almost as much as Euro Pane's. Also, this isn't their specialty but Pastries by Nancy, Altadena west of Lake has great scones. Oh yes, the Huntington Library.

                Is Pastries by Nancy the place right across from Bulgarini?

                  I know Bulgarini is on Altadena Drive, I do not know for sure.

                  I recently went to the Scarlet Tea Room, and I was pleasantly surprised with their scones!

                    EuroPane's Sumi Chang is the queen of all scones. Why even think about going somewhere else. Instead, try the ginger...

                      Second that. EuroPane's ginger scone is the best breakfast pastry in southern California. Get there early on weekends ...

                        I'll third Sumi's Ginger Scone. It's amazing. The Fig Custard Tarts are pretty good too. Has anyone tried her newish Laduree-style macaroons?
