Name: Honey Pecan English Tea Scones

Brand: Sconehenge

Origin: Berkeley

Found at: Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom)

Cost: $4.20

Ingredients: Unbleached flour, buttermilk, butter, eggs, sugar, baking powder and salt

Calories per serving: Not listed

Why I bought it: There was virtually no coherent argument to be made in favor of leaving them on the shelf.

Tasting notes: It states on the package that these scones are made from an old(e) English monastery's recipe, and that people would line up for the treats. Small wonder why: They're buttery and addictive. I didn't even get a chance to see what one tastes like toasted because I snarfled them up quickly, right out of the bag.

Would I buy it again? Yes, and probably very soon.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Yelpers' opinions, as always, vary drastically, from "roadkill" (as one unfortunately describes the food at Sconehenge's South Berkeley cafe at 2787 Shattuck) to "unmatched" (in a good way, and referring to the scones). I don't know about the other food, but Sconehenge has certainly mastered its namesake.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
