I absolutely love scones. LOVE them. So, when I went to visit a friend of mine in Columbus, Ohio, she mentioned a local bakery in Gahanna that had…scones. So, it only seemed natural that I go and check them out. I mean…scones for breakfast make any day better. Mark my words.
So, we headed into Gahanna and dashed through the rain into Bread Basket Family Bakery. Their mission: To make the best baked products possible. To serve our customers, our community, and our families to the best of our abilities. Seems noble enough. And, for a bakery that does everything…EVERYTHING…from scratch, well, it has to be good.
Myself and my two friends were set on scones, although contemplated a loaf of bread for a moment. Realizing we had much to do before heading back home, we opted just for the breakfast. Each of my friends got a chocolate chip scone. I opted for the strawberry cream cheese scone.
The one thing I absolutely loved about this bakery was the glass walls. Honestly, I could look back behind the counter and see the staff preparing the breads, the scones, the cakes…I could see it happening. I could see how the food was prepared and the people who were making it. No hidden kitchen in the back. It was out there and it was fascinating.
With scones in hand, we headed out with great anticipation to dive into them. I was informed the chocolate chip scones were awesome. The chocolate chips just melted away as you popped bits into your mouth. One of my friends got one with icing on it and she loved it. My strawberry and cream cheese scone was good…but it didn’t wow me. It might have been a texture thing. That being said, it was good. Delicious. And, despite the very large size of the scone…I ate every last bite of it. I kind of want to go back and try another kind…and maybe get some bread.
I’m very particular on scones. When I travel overseas, it’s my go-to breakfast for the most part. It’s filling, it’s delicious, it’s just…a warm piece of heaven that goes well with tea or coffee. Yes…scones are amazing. And the Bread Basket Family Bakery does a good job with their recipes. Good enough that I really want to go back and have another one…
