Best of Boston

1999 Best Muffin

Appleton Bakery Cafe

The husband-and-wife team of South End caterers who opened Appleton last year make fresh muffins with delicious and often surprising combinations such as peaches and walnuts, and pineapple and coconut. For the adventurous, there’s white chocolate and caramel apple; traditionalists will love the blueberry muffins.
