Some friends of mine took me to Stumptown Coffee, a neighborhood favorite in Portland, Oregon. This was the most unusual cup of hot cocoa I’ve had — it didn’t have that bitterness that Starbuck’s hot chocolate has, and it was sweet and flavorful without being saccharine. Not to mention the design of the foam and whipped cream was really cute, and only added to the appetizing nature of the beverage. Along with my hot chocolate, I had a delicious raspberry and hazelnut scone.
This scone was really delicious — the combination of fresh raspberries and chopped hazelnuts was really scrumptious (of course, I’m a huge fan of hazelnuts, so it’s hard to go wrong when they put them into the scone) and I think I can honestly say that this is the best scone I’ve ever had. You don’t get that many unique flavors in scones, but this one was a new twist on a more traditional fruit scone. Delicious!
