Best Morning Muffin: Village Health Market

It’s called Top of the Day, which is apt because after a muffin this good, you may feel like it’s all downhill as far as the rest of the day’s meals are concerned. Crusty on top, moist throughout and chock full of raisins and nuts, it’s way too scrumptious to be believable as health food, but hey, the place is a “Health Market” — it says so on the sign. And if you get there in the morning just after they’ve finished baking, the muffins will be warm. The smell may wake you up all by itself. (And the coffee ain’t bad either.) 3225 S. MacDill Ave., Tampa, 813-831-6065.
