“specializing in huge muffins (best anywhere!); other great items - INSIDE SCOOP”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 November 2016

This is a casual "buy and sit down to eat" restaurant that does a huge carry-out business. The house specialties here are gigantic muffins in dozens of different varieties every day, including non-sugar, non-fat, and high fiber. Some have cream cheese filling, others have crumb topping, and some are a bit healthier. (All freeze well -- buy a half dozen or a dozen.)

My personal favorites are: raspberry or blackberry cream cheese; carrot cake (with cream cheese); cherry almond; and raspberry fiber nugget. But I have tried a lot of other flavors and have never had a bad tasting one!

Ample free parking nearby; clean restrooms; coffee and other items available, including soup, quiche, lunch muffins (i.e. spinach feta veggie is amazing but very rich), and other items.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: [1] If you buy half a dozen before 9:00 am, you get an extra one free. [2] they have a frequent buyer card that gives you some points for each purchase and you get free stuff with the points. [3] They have day-old items if you go early enough in the day. [4] They have a few muffins each day that are misshapen, etc, that they sell fro reduced prices. [5] They have "cash and carry" gift baskets if you need to take something like this to work or for a gift.

It's a busy place at noon but they have the staff to handle it. Between the 3 of us we had two kinds of soup, a salad (one of the best I've had), a sandwich, and a muffin, and all were excellent, with the muffin being to die for. A table opened up just as our food was ready, so I could see seating being a problem sometimes. Highly recommend.

Really a pleasure, particularly the house made breads and daily soups. Great attention to quality and all the small details that make it work. Service could be a little more friendly though I understand they always seem to be in a hurry to keep the wait in line moving along. It would be nice to see samples occasionally to try something new also the bakery counter appears sparse on occasion. Absolutely terrific flavors and fresh high quality ingredients very consistent over many years here.

From muffins to cookies, sandwiches or quiche -- Ridleys promises excellent food. A great choice for a gift, send one of their baskets. Enjoy breakfast or lunch here or as I do, run in for a great cup of coffee and a muffin.
