I thought I might write up another cheese scone review, seen there are a few cafe around my work place who self raves about their cheese scones.
Since I was in town early in the morning, I took the liberty to grabbing a coffee and cheese scone to take away.
Legato is on the ground floor of an office building, which I suspect most of the patrons here are those that work closeby – perhaps the building on top. The cafe certainly has a lot of space in comparsion to other cafes that tend to cram as many tables as they can. I thought the cafe was very welcoming and relaxed.
Flat White – Legato uses a local coffee roaster – Supreme, which is one of my favourite local roasters. The coffee was good.
Cheese Scone – Unfortunately I was not asked whether I would like my cheese scone to be warmed nor toasted. When I got to the office, the toaster was being used, so I decided to heat it in the mircowave for a few seconds. After smearing some butter on it I was all good to go. After a few mouthfuls, the cheese scone seemed very similar to that from Smith the Grocers where it was a bit gritty and slightly dense. I was a bit disappointed, as I have heard from a few people that their cheese scones were quite good.
I do not think I will return again for their cheese scones, just the fact that I know of a good place just around the corner from them.
Dear reader, have you had Legato’s cheese scones? What are your opinions on them? Do you have a preferred?
