The Mystic Muffin is open again.
The humble downtown Toronto shop at the corner of Jarvis & Church has been COVID closed for two months, but the store’s owner had to get the place back up and running for its 27th anniversary.
“I don’t even look like I’ve been here 27 years,” Elias says with wry smile.
Mystic Muffin is one of those places you just happen upon, and then keep going back. Many people do. It’s more than a coffee stop.
A sign on the building boasts about the “World’s Best Apple Cake” and, after tasting it, who is going to doubt it? The muffins are wonderful and the pasta salad is a favorite.
Mystic Muffin is fresh, fast and friendly. Pick up something when you are in the neighbourhood.
Where else are you going to get a medium coffee, muffin and love for $3.50?
