About Muffins Cafe’

The Muffins Cafe - New York City

The Muffins Shop Café opened its doors in 1993, to an Upper West Side that was in transition from a slightly scruffy but colorful neighborhood to the elegant enclave it is today. During these past 20 years, we have witnessed many changes from our little spot. We’ve seen customers propose over cappuccino, and bring their first-borns for teething bagels, and grab a sandwich for lunch, year after year. We’ve seen Columbus Avenue repaved (in the early days) and re-structured (bike lanes). We’ve seen mega-coffee shops come and go, and grocery stores and banks. Through it all, we have done our best to hold to the principles that we began with; fresh, delicious food, served in a congenial atmosphere, by friendly and capable people. We invite you to come check us out. We look forward to meeting you!
