#64 – Go to Kitten & the Bear for scones & jam

If winter camping was an Adam list item, this one was all me.  I love jam (I’ve been known to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon), and growing up my Granny used to have us over for fresh made scones all the time.  So when I read this article about Kitten and the Bear, a Parkdale shop making small batch artisanal jams and scones, I wanted to go.  We never found time in the Fall, so when we were making our 2014 list, I sneaked it on.

We went this morning and it was so, so great.  The décor and details are beautiful, and we were lucky to grab one of the few available seats.  Adam got a cup of pour-over coffee, I got Marrakesh Mint tea (served in a vintage teapot), and we split the Jam Sampler plate.  The sampler plate comes with two scones, butter and samples of three jams.  We were lucky to be treated to all four currently on the menu; Grapefruit & Rose, Lime & Jasmine, Tangerine & Rosemary and Pear, Maple & Scotch.  It was all delicious and I am excited to make it a regular thing throughout the year!  We came home with a jar of the Pear, Maple & Scotch and our own antique silver jam spoon.  Can’t say enough great things about this shop, and the owners are super lovely.
