Top Five: Scones

1 At Fika, his Scandinavian-style café in Kensington Market, Splendido chef Victor Barry makes the city’s sweetest scones, with cranberries studded throughout and Swedish Dansukker sugar across the golden top. $3. 28 Kensington Ave., fika.ca.

2 Baker Andrea Mut of Andrea’s Gerrard Street Bakery uses lemon three ways—grated zest, freshly squeezed juice and a dash of potent syrup—to infuse her lemon currant scones with neon-bright tartness. $2.75. 635 Gerrard St. E., 416-465-4567.

3 The namesake treats at Baker and Scone, made with locally churned Stirling Butter, are as light and flaky as any croissant. Of the 40-odd options, we like the summery, tropical coconut version best. $2.75. 693 St. Clair Ave. W., 416-657-2663.

4 Blackbird Baking Co., a new bread shop in Kensington Market, gives their classic savoury scone an Italian makeover, melting thin slices of sharp pecorino onto a puffed-up, rosemary-laced biscuit. $2.50. 172 Baldwin St., 416-546-2280.

5 The Leaside bakery Wisey’s specializes in meat pies, but owners Gary Wise and Karen Kriefe-Wise also make amazing scones, baking molten nubs of gooey white chocolate into their plate-size blueberry treats. $3. 874 Eglinton Ave. E., 416-423-9473.
