I had tried to get Isle's vegan scone earlier, but they had sold out by the time I arrived. So I went back the next day and got a hot, fresh scone filled with some fruits (peach and fig? I'm not sure what they were). It was delicious and super-filling, so don't expect to eat anything else for a couple of hours. Best of all, it's super cheap at only $2.

Their hand-squeezed orange juice is also spectacular. It's some of the best orange juice I've ever had in the US---it reminded me of when I was in Brazil and you'd get fresh orange juice at roadside stands next to groves.

There's some seating outside, but it gets filled quickly on the weekends. Inside has a few spots, but it's awfully tight. This place might be a good take-out joint; get some stuff, walk to Lake of Isles or Lake Calhoun and just sit and enjoy some scenery along with a vegan scone and orange juice or tea/coffee.

Stepping into Isles Bun and Bakery, one feels transported to Seattle at worst, Paris at best. The bakery bustles with customers and staff, the latter can be watched as they mix, roll and plop their famous rolls onto cookie sheets. The coffee is great and the vegan scones are good. It's a great place to fuel up before a jaunt to the Lake of the Isles dog park. Don't forget to grab Fido a treat!
