At Bis.Co.Latte in Hell's Kitchen, miniature scones are six for $6 or $1.25 apiece. Given their size, the housemade scones are perfect for the indecisive—buttery little nuggets with a golden surface. They run on the soft and fluffy side, certainly far from the traditional English sort, but nonetheless delicious in their own way.

You'll find ordinary flavors like plain, currant, and chocolate chip. But also look out for seasonal fruit scones; I checked in last week and devoured one each of a still-warm blueberry and strawberry. Every once in awhile you might be lucky enough to come across a special flavor, in fall, you might see pumpkin butter. Go early for this—it's dotted with melty butterscotch chips, the pumpkin flavor round and subtle with hints of cinnamon. Take it home and slather on that clotted cream.
