Some Chowhounds have been mentioning the Windsor Arm's scones in an afternoon tea thread, so I thought I'd start a thread on other scones I've enjoyed around town.
I recently enjoyed some non-traditional, massive, decadent, buttery, ginger scones that were part of their pastry basket ($14) on the brunch menu at C5. While $14 is expensive for a pastry basket, the 6 pastries in the basket were larger and tastier than average. The basket also included a pain au choc, 2 almond croissants and cherry/custard danish.
Have enjoyed the mini-scones in the pastry basket offered on Frank's brunch menu, but haven't tried their blackcurrant scones. http://www.ago.net/frank-brunch-menu
Also like the light & flaky scones on the brunch menu at the Drake ($8). http://www.thedrakehotel.ca/_ftp/menu...
The scones offered at the King Eddy's afternoon tea were light and flaky, but traditional.
