scones in Toronto
Some Chowhounds have been mentioning the Windsor Arm's scones in an afternoon tea thread, so I thought I'd start a thread on other scones I've enjoyed around town.
I recently enjoyed some non-traditional, massive, decadent, buttery, ginger scones that were part of their pastry basket ($14) on the brunch menu at C5. While $14 is expensive for a pastry basket, the 6 pastries in the basket were larger and tastier than average. The basket also included a pain au choc, 2 almond croissants and cherry/custard danish.
Have enjoyed the mini-scones in the pastry basket offered on Frank's brunch menu, but haven't tried their blackcurrant scones. http://www.ago.net/frank-brunch-menu
Also like the light & flaky scones on the brunch menu at the Drake ($8). http://www.thedrakehotel.ca/_ftp/menu...
The scones offered at the King Eddy's afternoon tea were light and flaky, but traditional.

I really enjoy the scones from Brick Street Bakery. These scones a plain but delicious. And also from one of the bakeries upstairs (maybe Carousel?) at the SLM. They are on the west side of the building right across from the place with the great roast beef sandwiches. These scones have chunks of white chocolate (which I am not usually a fan of) and raspberries.
I love scones!

Oh I agree...I'm a big scone fanatic too...Le Gourmand is an easy treat on the weekends for me, and now that they have re-opened they're available again!!
Definitely the scones at Mildred's. Not too sweet, totally buttery, and just the right size to go with brunch.
