    The perfect balance of virtuous and delicious. Most of the muffins have sparing sugar tops and soft fruit cores—you won't find fruit studded evenly all the way through, but hiding in a gooey center. Read more

    It's hard to go wrong here. I usually get a latte with a pumpkin apple walnut muffin. Getting one of the muffins right out of the oven is life changing.

    Their hot chocolate is so rich and delicious! If you're lactose-intolerant (like me) you'll appreciate that they don't use super sweet soy milk and overload the drink a nice balance.

    They may be known for their muffins, but the cinnamon roll is also worth trying out. You can get it with a lemon frosting that is *chef's kiss*

    Best muffins in Brooklyn. And the staff is extremely friendly- it's mandatory that you visit if you're in park slope.

    Go for the muffins with pumpkin, carrot, zucchini, banana, walnuts. Skip the ones with a cakey base batter. Love these muffins.

    Ask for a half-dozen muffins. When you are given your order, tell them you want to try out for the muffin muncher competition that takes place every third Sunday. It's a real blast!

    "A thin coat of sugar brushed atop each blueberry muffin ($2.25) glistens just slightly on a sunny morning, and when your teeth penetrate the surface, they’re met with a confident crunch." Read more

    Stop over thinking what muffin to get and order a slice of chocolate-chip banana bread. If you're getting it to-go get a coffee elsewhere otherwise order an espresso drink.

    Everything is wonderful but especially the muffins. If you can get them hot out of the oven even better.

    This spot closes early, at like 1 p.m. So? Get there super-early because the baked goods are tenderoni, they have homemade dog treats, and the coffee is strong.

    Why is this listed in your article of the 15 best places in Brooklyn for Purne Danish??? When I asked for it the guy seemed offended and said "We don't use prunes in here!"

    If I could marry baked goods, I'd commit polygamy with their muffins.

    Muffins: These things are unbelievably good, stuffed with amazing fruits, and never too sugary or sweet. Get there early - they close at 2pm and the best muffins sell out by late morning.
