Scone Shoppe Bridge Ave Point Pleasant Boro. Has anyone tried this place yet?
Please shared your experiences. Thank you
Hey shabbystorm, I stoped by the Scone place on bridge ave today. It is a really nice family run business, the kind of place I like to support. They offer tea sandwiches as well as a great variety of scones. I would say it is set up like a tea shop everything is served on real China and I will definitely go back to have something there. I picked up four scones to bring home,chocolate, white chocolate, apricot and nut and a white chocolate and cranberry. The scones were absolutely terrific and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I have never had such scones and my wife and I could not stop eating them. They are very very buttery, almost like a sugar cookie on the outside and a really great texture on the inside.
This place definitely makes the Must Try List for NJ - These Scones were AMAZING.
Brought them home for dessert last night and my husband says, you know I don't like scones, I'm not eating them. I said, you have not tasted these! After one bite he agreed these are wonderful.
The small shop is open from 8-4PM each day. I did not sit down for formal tea (but it is extremely civilized and quaint I just did take out.
They make 8-10 varieties each day.
Brought home a triple berry - blueberry - and a cinnamon chip (like coffee cake) Cannot say enough good things.
Here is a list of their flavors:
Apricot - Apricot Walnut - Blueberry - Blackberry - Butterscotch Toffee - Cranberry - Chocolate Delight - Cherry Chocolate - Cinnamon Pecan - Chocolate Cinnamon - Coconut - Cinnamon Raisin - Cinnamon Chip - Date and Nut - Cinnamon Apple - Fig Pistachio - Fruit Cake - Ginger Peach - Cran Organge - Gingerbread - Hazelnut Chocolate - Lemon Poppy Seed - Mixed Nuts - Smore - Nutty - Oatmeal Raisin - Peanut Butter - Pumpkin - Peaches and Cream - Pear Walnut - Pineapple - Raisin - Red Raspberry - Raspberry Dark Chocolate - Sunshine - Toasted Almond - Triple Berry - Turtle - Very Berry - White Chocolate Macadamia - Coffee Flavor Scones Double Mocha Cappuccino - English Toffee Cappuccino - Hazelnut Cappucino
Just returned from a Saturday morning road trip to Ocean county starting with the Scone Shop to pick up a 1/2 dozen to go. Lovely people run the place. Had to sneak a few bites in the parking lot on the way out - DELICIOUS. Cant wait to sample the rest at thome.
Now on to our first vist to Karen & Irv's for breakfast - EXCELLENT and a real value here with great rye bread. Could not leave this place without getting a Pastrami on rye to go which will be lunch.
Chowhound heaven today ...
just went there this morning. I live in Brick and go there all the time. I've been to almost all the tea houses in NJ and she has the BEST scones. It's a nice family business. Theresa has a nice limited lunch menu. Her mom, son, daughter, aunt and niece work there. They are a great bunch of people. You should go - it's worth it!
re: tea shop lady
My husband and I went to the Scone Shoppe yesterday for lunch. We loved it! Long story short, their soups and their luncheon foods are AWESOME!
I had a pear/ walnut scone that was quite authentic but a tad too airy and light for me. I did not appreciate my husband's chocolate cherry scone, as I felt it was too sweet and it just didnt feel like a real scone to me. I guess I am a scone snob, having had tea at the 2 best places in London, I kinda know...a tiny bit lol. BUT.......big but here....the scones are superb, dont get me wrong. I am definitely going back. The tea is excellent.
I highly recommend the Scone Shoppe and I want to bring everybody I know there!
Im sorry for my lack of detail, but I really need to post about the Buffet Europa we went to last night...please look that post up in a few hours when I get around to formulating details about it.
In case tea shop lady does not see your request, this should help:
The Mulberry Tea House, mentioned by njfoodies, is ranked #2 in New Jersey. Teaberry's in Flemington, which I know well, is ranked #1. Teaberry's has wonderful scones though I don't frequent enough places to compare them to the other locations mentioned in this thread.
My husband surprised me last week and took me to the Scone Shoppe. The place is absolutely gorgeous! What an update from the days of being a yogurt store. The scones were out of this world. My husband's favorite is the Oatmeal Raisin and mine is the Classic (White Chocolate and Cranberry). If you go you have to try the Crab Cakes and the Chicken Salad Sandwich. Wonderfu!!! Everything was so good that I can't wait to go back and try different scones and sample the Scone Ladies Tea. You have to try it. You will be hooked.
Shabbystorm, as I indicated I've been to the scone shop in Point and they are excellent. However, the wife and I agree that the scones at the Cheese Shop in Ocean Grove are even better. The only problem is that they only have them one day a week - Sunday morning. Just trust me on this one, go there and you will not be dissapointed.
Their scones are the absolute best.
I finally tried a scone from here yesterday. My parents live in Manasquan and picked some up; they are absolutely delicious. Stick them in your toaster oven for a minute if they are a day or two old and still tender and not hard like the kind you usually end up buying. Great recommendation!
I just got back from lunch, and wow. Let me say the scones are terrific. I took my Mom, who is 78, and she fit right in with the rest of the crowd. The only man in the place was the son of the scone maker, who was a wonderful waiter.
We shared all of the food today. We had The Scone Lady's Tea which consisted of three plates. We got two finger sandwiches, one of home made egg salad, and the other home made chicken salad. We also had two tiny quiches, which were wonderful bites. The next plate had your choice of scone, and we chose the blueberry. It was crisp on the outside and still moist and delicious on the inside. It is served with butter, lemon curd and strawberry jelly. The scones were the outstanding part of the meal for us. There was also a lovely zuccinni muffin which was very nice. The third tier had two cream puffs which looked like the Costco cream puffs to me. There were two petit fours, which also weren't baked there, and were overly sweet for my taste. Then there was a nice round of chocolate cake with maybe some chopped cherries in it, topped with whip cream. The cake was light, chocolatey and moist.
We also split a piece of spinach quiche, which along with the soups, they told us isn't made by the scone lady. The salad was a mixed green salad with a vinagrette dressing, and fresh and crisp.
You get a pot of tea "for one", but the tea pot is quite large, and you get many cups out of it. They also have iced tea and some limited soda choices available.
The tea is served in china, and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. I don't know if a man would feel comfortable surrounded by six tables of mature women chatting each other up. We didn't order the cheese crepes, but they walked by with a few orders, and they had beautiful fresh fruit on top, and the people at those tables raved about them.
I loved the scones so much I had to get a few boxed up for later. In fact, blueberry scone crumbs are migrating into my keyboard right now! Scones for lunch, and now a scone for dessert!! Just perfect. Get there and try them. You'll be happy you did!
The Scone Shoppe, Pt. Pleasant was the snack of the day on Rachel Ray this morning.
Congrats on the national attention!
