Scream Sorbet "Winter Cafe"

Scream's Telegraph store is now open from 8:00-11:30 Wednesday-Sunday offering a variety of house-made baked goods (including bagels), preserves, etc. Anyone stopped in yet?

  1. You're saying they're opening earlier five days a week? The hours on the Web site are:

    Sunday through Thursday, noon - 10pm
    Friday and Saturday, noon - 11pm

      Yes, that's what I'm saying. They sell baked goods and beverages in the morning, then switch over to Sorbet at noon. This morning they apparently had apple dumplings (cinnamon & pink pearl apple wrapped in pie dough) and scones (roasted pear with chocolate). I think it's a smart idea to diversify for cold weather months.

        roasted pear w/ chocolate scone...sounds kinda perfect. thanks for the post.

    2. Just stopped by on the way to work this morning - they had biscotti ($1), apple dumplings ($3), and plain bagels ($2 alone, $3 with condiments) on offer, along with some jars of pecan butter, apple butter, and quince preserves for sale. Got a bagel to go - their bagels are quite compact, even smaller than the ones Beauty's sells down the street. The crust is attractively rough-textured, though lacking the snappy crunch of my current go-to bagels from Baron's; these suckers are really chewy, though, which I love - that chew is what tells me I'm eating a proper bagel instead of a roll with a hole. Thumbs up for their bagels, at least - will have to go back and try the other things another time.

      1. Updates on the morning cafe?

        Here's the East Bay Express's article,

          They weren't open this morning when I went by to check it out.

            Shoot, wonder when it was discontinued. I wish I'd read that article earlier and taken to heart Scream's need for more revenue streams to stay viable.
