If You Like Ginger....(SD)

Then you must make a trip out to OB and try one of the ginger scones from Azucar the new Cuban bakery on Newport right off Sunset Cliffs. I just finished a ginger scone for breakfast and it was a real treat. The scone was tender and lacked the usual sandy, dry texture of many commercial scones. The large chunks of candied ginger provided a nice peppery bite and the ginger spread they give you with the scone is delicious enough to eat with a spoon by itself. I also liked that it was a normal portion size and not some overly enormous hunk of carbohydrate.

The coconut cupcake was satisfying and the Cafe Cubano a good buy at $1.50. Thank god I don't live in the neighborhood and parking can be a hassle during the summer, or I'd probably be living at this bakery. I am sure I'll have no problem justifying additional trips and I look forward to working my way through the menu.
