I am looking for great scones in the orange county area. I recently came back from AZ and they had a bakery called Wildflower with pretty good cranberry scones. I would appreciate anyones expertise in locating these. Thank you

  1. I wents to Plums Cafe on 17th St. in Costa Mesa for breakfast last week. While I didn't try the scones in the bakery display, they sure did look good.

    Maybe some of the hounds can comment on them.

      Plums definitely has the best scones in OC. tender, flakey, moist and flavorful.

    2. have you tried zinc cafe yet?

      1. Blackmarket Bakery in the Saturday Irvine Farmer's market. Last two weeks I've had their pumpkin cranberry scones. Very yummy.

        1. Pain du Monde.
          There are a few locations in newport and Costa Mesa. Always great baked goods, and I have always been a fan of their tri-berry scone: note too sweet or cakey.

            I meant "not too sweet or cakey"

          2. Pacific Whey Cafe makes a delicious scone. It's certainly huge (enough for 3 people), but also moist and not too sweet. Exactly how a scone should be. Locations in Newport Coast, Newport Beach, & Ladera Ranch.
