Local Flavor: Kleine's Polite Lil' Bites

Posted By on Tue, Sep 1, 2009 at 12:00 PM

​Treasa Ewing, owner of San Francisco's Kleine (German for "little girl" or "little one"), has expressed a dream to open up her own scone bar. Until that's realized, Kleine's Sconelettes offer a teeny taste of what that might be like.

Ewing's creations, made with Fair Trade ingredients and packaging, are light and clean tasting, with little twists setting them apart. The Sofia and Sofia Dark varieties have the zip of crystallized ginger (and chocolate, in the case of the Dark), the Spiced Pear conjures up fall compotes, and the Charlotte enlivens with a delicate smattering of blue poppy seeds, turbinado sugar, Straus cream, and Meyer lemon zest. We think they could be bigger, but that's just because we are pigs.

Kleine's Sconelettes are exclusively available online from Foodzie ($12/dozen), but S.F. residents may order by phone (238-0764) and ask about local delivery. They aren't in any shops currently but would probably do well at any of S.F.'s specialty grocers (in case any of them are reading).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
