Now I really have found the best scones in town
Facebook Jam and Cream
I guess with that title I have captured your attention. Because everyone loves Devonshire tea.
So imagine my delight when I discovered a place that not only serves plain and fruit scones but boasted 16 other varieties.
Who would believe it Mars Bar scones - Facebook Jam and Cream
Most of the scones are titled with little old lady names. May for example is an old lady's name (it is my mother's name - and she was born in 1920). This is the name the cafe gives to scones with lemon and poppyseed.
I decided on a serve of Gertrude which is scones embedded with piece of apricot and ginger. Sensational! But I could have opted for Daisy (scones with golden syrup), Agnes (coconut white chocolate and macadamia), Carmen (sultana, date, cinnamon and brown sugar) and the list marches ever downwards.
Except I forgot to mention the savoury options which are named after old blokes such as Gilbert (onion, cheddar and chutney), Montgomery (sweet cheddar and lime) and Basil which as you might expect was tomato, cheddar and basil.
