When in the area, I often make it a point to drop by ABC Kitchen and pick up a Spice Muffin ($3) to go in the cafe area. It's a stout muffin, moist and outfitted in a crunchy oat-kissed streusel topping, fragrant with cinnamon and nutmeg. Don't expect a light, fluffy muffin, as this is more on the dense side—hearty, and fantastically satisfying when taken home, split, popped in the toaster oven and generously slathered with softened butter.
