Variations on a Scone (Part 2) – Kayak’s Café (Skinker-DeBaliviere, St. Louis)

Blueberry Scone

If there is one thing that Kayak’s does well, it is make their scones exquisitely crunchy.  This is, perhaps, the single most critical element in determining the quality of a scone.  Hence, the crunchiness should never be overlooked.  The pleasant size remains, as does the soft inners.  It is quite pleasing to find full blueberry bits interspersed throughout and to taste a variety of flavors, including what may well be mild nutty undertones as well as a distinct taste of, what I believe to be, wheat.

A truly consistent scone.  Moreover, the lack of frosting makes this scone a far more sustainable, if slightly banal, adventure.
