The Tin Muffin is a place that once you been there once, you will be going back again often. The service is quick and friendly. Parking can be a little trying but I never have had a problem finding a parking spot. The food is special. I have never been a fan of Quiche but I have had many different types at the Tin Muffin. My favorite is the Crab and cheese Quiche. Salads are fresh, unique and so full of flavor. Chicken salad is the best I have had, chunks of chicken and the flavor explodes in your mouth. Soups are some of the best you have tasted. You will feel like you are eating in a country home with great service, great quality food with freshness and taste that will make you want to try everything on the menu!

I have passed by the Tin Muffin a dozen times on my way to the beach. Unfortunately, these trips are on Sundays, so I have not had the chance to get to the Tin Muffin, but now was my chance. I parked in the lot across the street and the friendly staff assured me it was ok, and I was not going to be towed. The staff was so nice and friendly it made the experience that much better. I ordered the turkey sandwich, simple and delicious. The best part was the fresh bread and the homemade and carved turkey. To me nothing is better than fresh carved turkey on a homemade sandwich. I feel that extra effort in the art of sandwich making really makes the biggest difference. The sandwich was fresh, delicious and the mayo/mustard sauce was delicious as well, the tomatoes and lettuce were crisp and fresh. I did not order soup but I decided that 2 desserts were in my best interest. I ordered the chocolate cake and the cherry pie/crisp. The chocolate cake was chocolatey and rich. The icing was sweet and fluffy, it was so good. I wish the cake was more moist but the portion was great. I then began to eat my cherry crisp and it was one of the best crusts/toppings I’ve had in a while. It was buttery, cinnamony, sweet and flaky; the filling was also really good as well. The crust was the real winner in this dessert. Overall, I really enjoyed my meal at the Tin Muffin and will be going back there on a Saturday for lunch.

Parking was easy to find across the street. The place was packed but we waited less than 5 minutes for our table. We chose to sit inside even though outside seating is available. What a charming place for lunch! Everything is freshly made and there is something for everyone: The Tin Muffin Cafe offers a variety of homemade sandwiches, soups, salads and daily specials that are hard to find anywhere else. And it is served with a smile. Original restrooms – just go there and experience it yourself. But please remember: The restaurant does not take any credit cards – only cash. That can be a trap for some tourists and non-regulars since it is not advertised on the door.
