Making a muffin is like growing a flower: After planting the seed in a special pot and baking it at 400 degrees, you're rewarded with a beautiful blossom that tastes like cake. Pluck a flavorful flower with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, salads, and gourmet muffins at My Favorite Muffin & Bagel Café, with two locations in Reno and one in Sparks.
My Favorite Muffins & Bagel Café cooks up divine deli delights and thrills fans of post-oven muffin batter with cake-like gourmet muffins. Bite into bliss with a gourmet sandwich ($5.65 each), such as the classic turkey, or reprise vegetable-based catchphrases when ordering the holey guacamole sandwich, a flavorful bread shelter for turkey, guacamole, green pepper, lettuce, and tomato. Herbivorous accomplices may feast on light-and-fit choices, such as the garden mix salad ($4.99) and the mediterranean bread salad, a spirited ensemble of ripe tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, and salami in a chorus line with provolone cheese, green olives, crisp greens, and greek vinaigrette dressing ($6.99).
Recovering cupcake addicts can find a sweet substitution with more than 20 different types of muffins in tempting flavors including cherry cheesecake, banana nut, lemon poppyseed, cinnamon crumb, and coconut macaroon ($1.99 for jumbo-sized muffins). Muffin wizards raise their spatulas each morning to conjure round-topped treats from scratch, using healthy ingredients such as egg whites and soybean oil, with no added preservatives.
