A tablehoppin’ reader writes in: “~PIZZETTA 211~ (my neighborhood happy place) is now open for Blue Bottle Coffee and pastries 7am-11am. They had croissants yesterday (and said they will likely have them every Thursday) and delicious kumquat marmalade buttermilk scones today. The guy ahead of me in line walked half a block away, then came back for a second scone. Unlike the pizza line in the evening, the coffee line is short, for now.” Kumquat marmalade buttermilk scones—that doesn’t sound crappy, not one bit.
