Don't let the name fool you. They do have great bakery items but their menu is really good. Great salads, great chicken or tuna sandwiches. Also do a great job of preparing to go platters if you find yourself in Brentwood and need to serve a group of people.

Thank TOM S

Caution: In spite of the breakfasty sounding name, they only serve breakfast until 10:15 on weekdays (not sure if Sat is different). We arrived at 10:14 for breakfast on a Friday morning. After quickly reviewing both menus, one of us ordered breakfast the three others ordered lunch. Breakfast was fine and cost about $8.50 for eggs, toast, potatoes and sausage. The lunch menu was decent and included sandwich options on croissants and english muffins, served with homemade pickles. They were all pretty tasty. There were many locals eating here; it seemed to be a popular place. Service was very good and the manager even walked around talking to people and refilling drinks.

The main attraction though is the long row of glass cases with pies, cakes, varied cookies, and of course, muffins. Cookie prices started at $1.25 each. We bought a variety of stuff for $20 and most of it was just okay - only the toffee cookie was impressive but it was also over a dollar for one tollhouse size cookie. They also make something called a 'chocolate bomb' that my kids loved.

Puffy Muffin is located among of strip of really cute locally owned shops, and we enjoyed walking off some calories and checking them out after lunch.

Everything is fresh & home made at Puffy Muffin, including the salad dressings. You'll find a great assortment of salads, sandwiches, quiches and bakery items in a feminine tea room.

It's all the love they put into it. Ha, yes, that's what they said when I was raving about their BLT rolls (BLT on a homemade little yeast roll) and their chocolate chunk cookies. I'm like, "hmmm, I could make a BLT sandwich; I could make a chocolate chunk cookie, but it just tastes BETTER here!" But honestly, everything there is good. They also have alot of not so simple gourmet dishes. Also, the burgers, the spinach artichoke dip, etc., are ALL delicious! When we get a taste for their food at work, we say "time to do the puffy!" It DOES get quite crowded there, though, so I've always done the carryout.

We love The Puffy Muffin for lunch! My only critique is they are not open on Sundays. I love their Chicken Salad and often stop by and take it home. Their Sampler Platter is so tasty. Just about everything from their bakery is heavenly. The Strawberry Cream Cake is Devine, although purchasing the entire cake for a special occasion is a better test of how good it really is. individual slices dry out. There is almost always a wait, so plan accordingly. They also have a room for private parties which I have done and it is really a fun venue.
