When young I satisfied the search for the best sidewalk to roller skate on (in my neighborhood).
I spent many years comparing donuts in several states...Casey's donuts in the Midwest are still the winner for me! (cross that one off the list)... I guess now I'm searching for the best SCONE. Panera is very good, B&N is just OK, but the one I enjoyed yesterday has been the best. I found and devoured it at:
THE UPPER CRUST shop in North Raleigh:
It's located on Honeycutt Rd., near Strickland and Hwy. 540. It's a delightful shop...and the coffee is very good too.
