FAQs

Where can I buy your scones?

You can find Sidney Scones inside Brittania’s Bakery and Café, 2310 Beacon Ave. Sidney, BC V8L 1X2.  Open daily from 8am-4pm. Our scones can also be found at select markets throughout the year in the Victoria area. Check out our events page to see where we’ll be!

How long are scones good for?

My scones are, of course, always best eaten on the day they were baked. But, if they are stored correctly they can taste delicious for up to 48 hours due to the high quality of my fresh ingredients. They are best kept at room temperature in airtight tupperware or a freezer bag, lined with paper towel (that will help ensure the scones don’t get soggy). One exception to the room temperature rule is scones topped with a dairy-based glaze (Cream cheese, Devonshire cream, etc.)—they should always be kept in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze my scones?

Yes! Scones freeze very well for up to three months. Store them in an airtight tupperware or freezer bags. If you are layering the scones in your container, separate the individual layers with parchment paper so that they they don’t get stuck together.

What is the best way to reheat my scones?

The best way to reheat scones is in the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 5-7 minutes. A toaster oven set to “toast” also works great. Another option for scones with no glaze, icing, or topping, is the toaster—slice them in half and put them in the toaster for a quick reheat. Leaving the scones out for approximately 30-60 minutes at room temperature is also a nice way to enjoy them… it makes them a perfect item for packed lunches, picnics etc. As for as microwaving scones—we tend to recommend against it. Your scones could get soggy when reheated this way, so be forewarned! If you do choose to microwave your scones, 30-40 seconds is likely the longest they should be put in for. They will lose their tender crisp exterior but will still be delicious and moist on the inside if not overdone.

How do I bake your Frozen Ready To Bake Scones?

Scones:  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; use the convection
feature if you have it. Scones must be baked from frozen, do not thaw. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Remove scones from packaging and place them 2-3 inches apart on prepared tray. Bake for 10 mins at 400 F and then drop the temperature to 350 F for another 10-15 minutes. Scones are done once they are nicely browned and spring back to the touch. Remove from oven and slide a cooling rack under the scones.

Glaze:  Fill a cup or bowl with the hottest water from your tap. Submerge glaze packet for 5-7 mins. Repeat if needed. Snip off a corner of the packet and drizzle onto warm or cooled scones.

I hope you enjoy your freshly baked scones and I thank you for your support!

Do you deliver?

Sidney Scones are only available at our location inside of Brittania’s Bakery and Café, and at various markets and events in the Victoria area throughout the year. You can see where we’ll be on our events page.

Do you bake any specialty items other than scones?

No, at this time gourmet scones are my only item. My goal was to create a recipe, perfect it, and specialize in one item with a variety of flavours. This way I am able to focus and continually provide the highest quality product. I can give you the contact details of other specialty item providers whom I highly recommend.

What payment methods are accepted?

We are able to accept cash, e-transfer, credit, and debit, both at our brick and mortar location and at markets and events.

Can you guarantee that your GF/Vegan scones have not been cross contaminated?

Although I sanitize and clean all of my equipment throughly when baking gluten-free or vegan scones, I am not a certified Gluten-free or vegan kitchen and I cannot provide a 100% guarantee that cross contamination has not occurred. I do have many loyal/regular vegan and celiac clients though, who are able to eat my scones with no adverse reactions thus far.
