The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. With today's Groupon: for $12, you get a dozen gourmet muffins (a $25 value) at Maggie's Magic Muffin House, with locations in Boardman and Austintown.
Maggie's Magic Muffin House bewitches humdrum mouths with an assortment of house-made pastry pop-ups in original flavors, baked fresh daily. With more than 55 palate-pleasing flavors making rotating appearances, bakery patrons can build their collection of a dozen muffins with such taste-bud-ticklers as Cinnamon Girl, Banana and Walnut Anticipation, pumpkin pie, and the heart high-fiving bran muffin. Bear-hugging each sweet tooth, the Abbey Road blends together a chocolate muffin, chocolate chips, and chocolate fudge drizzled in a halo of marshmallows, and the Miss American pie, a streusel muffin woven together with apples and spices, induces flashbacks of bobby-socked school dances and spontaneous musical numbers during math class.
Filling tummies from a humble home turned restaurant, Maggie's quaint wooded décor and stained glass windows encourage guests to nestle in and enjoy one of their baked goodies or build a muffin daybed. Though not covered in the cost of today's Groupon, visitors can also savor a lunchtime meal, such as a sub sandwich, colorful salad, or espresso drink, or enjoy their sweets without leaving home, as Maggie's does offer national shipping for muffins for an extra price.
