July 27, 2023 edition - We’re talking ‘bout SCONES

Hey foodies!

This weather calls for a nice movie with snacks, or better yet, with dessert.

There has been an increase in the number of cafes serving up delicious desserts in the Tri-Cities. There are some old favourites and even a few new businesses specializing in everything from croissants to scones. Aren’t we lucky?

When I’m craving something sweet, tiramisu is one thing I can’t get enough of. My guilty pleasure is any dessert with coffee in it. What’s yours?

We are looking to feature more foodies in our newsletter so if you know of one, send them our way at [email protected].

Stay awesome,

– The ETC Team

Miss Scone is making some of the tastiest treats we’ve ever tried

There’s no one in the Tri-Cities doing scones quite like the aptly-named Miss Scone.

Opened just a few weeks ago and operating out of a commissary kitchen in Port Coquitlam, the small business is revolutionizing what can be done with the traditional British baked good. 

We ordered a half dozen, which included everything from the plain scone to the blueberry jam scone to the indescribably delicious almond Nutella scone.
