Best Scones in Toronto

I just realized that we don't have a thread devoted to scones. IMO, the best scones in Toronto can be found at the Drake. Their blueberry scones are an addiction of mine. I also had a very delicious lemon raspberry scone a few months ago from Ideal Coffee on Yonge just North of Lawrence. But today, I tried a brand new bakery devoted to scones called Baker and Scone. I had the lemon currant scone, and it was really delicious!! They have a ton of different flavours, which they will be rotating, and I have to say, that if you like scones, you HAVE to try this place. I'm going to go back every week, until I've tried every one of their flavours :)

Baker and Scone is located on St Clair, just a few doors down from Stockyards.

  1. I haven't done a taste test but I was impressed with the scones, and not much else, at Stock at the trump tower.

      I've head about the scones @ Stock, but I've yet to try them.

    2. You know my thoughts on this - the pumpkin scone at Starbucks. Only available in the Fall.

      Harbord Bakery.

      All The Best has very nice scones. Can't remember if they do them themselves or bring them in.

      Whole Foods also has some nice ones.

        Ooooh...I forgot about the pumpkin scone from Starbucks. And Yes, I must agree, that is a very yummy scone!!!

        Magic, you have to check out the scones at Baker and Scone. I think you'll be very impressed!!

          Oh I'll be going. Thanks for the scoop, kwass.

          The Starbucks pumpkin scones are out again, fyi. Again, only available in the Fall.

          Enjoy with a black coffee. Heaven.

            Apparently, Cobs has pumpkins scones right now too.

        3. St John's bakery - I like the orange, chocolate and ginger one. Available at the Big Carrot.

              Just saw a note at Big Carrot that St Johns discontinued this flavour. Their scones are worth a try regardless.

              I also loved the ginger scone at St John's!

              1. re: julesrules

                They used to sell a coconut walnut scone ... mmm! Available at both their store and at Big Carrot. It's been a while, not sure if they still have that flavor?

              2. I love the scones from Epi at Bayview and Millwood.
                Apricot was my fav but then they quit making them and now make raspberry which are delicious too.

                  I like the scones from Epi too. I find them to be a little on the dry side, but I'm still a fan.

                2. oh man! i was JUST at the stockyards ... i'll have to go back. :)
