Locanda Verde bakery counter: Sour cherry scone28 Jul 2011, Posted by Locanda Verde in
I swung by Locanda Verde’s bakery counter yesterday to see what kind of seasonal baked goods Karen DeMasco was serving up. There were two new items I have never tried before, blueberry mini pies and sour cherry scones. I scored a scone but unfortunately, the blueberry mini pies were sold out by 1:00.
The sour cherry scone was, as expected, excellent. Even close to 1:00p.m., it was still moist and fresh tasting with a nice grainy-but-not gritty texture. The scone has a lightly browned outside and a light dusting of sugar on top but it’s not very sweet. iI would work for me as a breakfast. At $3.75 (+ tax!) each and roughly half the size of an Alice’s Tea Cup or Clinton Street Baking scone–only you can be the judge if it’s worth it. Let me know what you think.
I’d imagine the blueberry mini pies are similar to the rhubarb minis I reviewed a few months ago.
