Breakfast deal! – This rather small cafe in brooklyn is just what you need to start your morning. The old fashioned decor and cheerful colors of the place pick your mood up immediately. They have a $3 deal in which you get a muffin of your choice and a cup of tea or coffee. For the best muffins in Brooklyn come to this bakery. It is often hard to find a seat at this cafe due to it's popularity. The small store front is painted bright colors to help you locate the cafe but it is not in one of the best neighborhoods. With that all said, I still consider it a great place to grab an amazing quick breakfast.
Love it! – These muffins dont just taste good, they put me in a great mood. I dont know what ingredients theyre using, but I feel light and healthy when I eat them. I go at least once a week and give Blue Sky muffins as gifts. Ive met the owner and hes a great guy. Id much rather support him than a chain that sells overpriced baked goods with underwhelming flavor.
Good, but maybe not worth the trek from Manhattan – I came to Brooklyn from Manhattan to get a massage at D'mai, and stopped at Blue Sky for breakfast. I expected from the reviews that the muffins would be enormous (since that's what many of the other reviews said), but they were pretty normal-sized muffins... Not sure why everyone thought they were so big, but they're much smaller than the gargantuan Starbucks muffins and look like they came out of a regular muffin pan to me (and I bake a lot). In any case, I had a very tasty piece of their chocolate chip banana loaf. Quite yummy, but not really worth going all the way to Brooklyn for if you don't live in the area. Also, don't go expecting to get a "traditional" muffin... all of theirs are generally unique combinations of different fruits and nuts and veggies and chocolate, and they only have about 5 or 6 different varieties every day which change every day... so expect to try something kind of new. But if you're in to fun flavor combinations, you may really like this place. The texture of the chocolate chip banana bread was really nice and the flavor was good as well... but again, just not really worth going all the way to Brooklyn for. If you are in the area however, it's a nice breakfast... The shop itself is quite cute with lots of little tables stacked with different magazines and newspapers, and is decorated in a country/home-y way... Lots of sunlight, very cute :)
Muffin Bakery Only? – I was excited to find Blue Sky Bakery on Fifth Avenue one morning when I was looking for a non-bagel breakfast. Although the muffins were very very good, I must admit to being a bit surprised at the meager non-muffin selection in the "bakery." True, Blue Sky has a very inovative take on muffins, mixing pumpkin with zucchini and chocolate chips, but it seems the chef is so focused on coming up with these zany mixtures that he doesn't take the time to make much else. 5 muffin choices, 2 pound cake type loafs and chocolate or almond croissants pretty much sums up the choices at this tiny place. There's no doubt about it though, the muffins are excellent (and were warm even at 11:30) and I found myself getting two due to the inability to choose from all the great flavors.
Warm, moist, freshly baked ovens - every visit! – The muffins from this bakery are simply legendary. It is worth getting up early, just to arrive at the bakery and be assured the sight of muffins, fresh out of the oven. Every muffin I have had has been equisite - a miniature work of art that melts in my mouth. And each one is warm and moist and fresh out of the oven. You have not tried muffins until you have tried Blue Sky's muffins!
Park Slope's Secret Ingredient – You know those magic moments...when the bagels are just out of the oven, or the mozzerella has just been packed, or the coffee has just been ground -- just as you walked in the door? Well, somehow those very rare, exceptional, and extraordinary moments happen all the time at Blue Sky Bakery. Everytime I go there baked goods are just out of the oven, fresh and hot. And their muffins are incredible, delicious concotions. I keep half expecting a line to be there on Saturday mornings, like Magnolia Bakery, where people wait patiently for their cupcakes to come out of the oven. Then I remember that there is no need for a line, because that magic moment is all day at Blue Sky. I promise.
This Park Slope bakery does brisk business in mammoth muffins. – In Short
This sun-drenched bakery and antique kitchenware shop--a popular hangout among Park Slope's stroller set and Atlantic Mall shoppers--specializes in down-home desserts and snacks: Moist banana bread, sticky sour cream-nut cake and tall chocolate-ganache torte are favorites. A wide selection of oversized muffins, from apple bran to zucchini-plum, change daily. Wood tables fill at lunchtime, when empanadas, olive-onion-Virginia ham pizza and other snack-sized savories emerge from the oven.
