LOVE THIS LITTLE PLACE - CONSISTENLY AMAZING FOOD! I really love this little restaurant. The only reasons that I docked them a star is (a) because it's so tiny inside that they have to have the smallest little chairs and tables and the chairs are like little kid's chairs so it's not very comfortable to sit (although I don't mind that they are so small - I think it adds to the quaint character ... I tend to enjoy boutique businesses because of the attention to detail and personalized service) - and - (b) because it's cash only. I understand that credit card fees are expensive but it's hard because every time I want to go there I realize I don't have any cash, so they don't make it very easy or convenient to do business with them that way. Otherwise, it's cute and quaint and the food is absolutely phenomenal. It is consistently great no matter what you order. I've never had a bad dish or glass or bowl of anything here. It's ALWAYS amazing. The raspberry iced tea-lemonade combo is delish & refreshing and the banana cake is to die for. Actually all of their desserts are to die for. Everything is made fresh from the freshest ingredients. I really don't know where of how they get everything so fresh. They also have the best specials like meatloaf and quiche - stuff you just don't get anywhere else. Each dish is so full of flavor, presented nicely and is the perfect size. The soups are also just perfect and again just bursting with freshness and flavor. I feel like I am in my grandma's garden room and she just made me some of her amazing fresh dishes with veggies, fruits and spices from her garden whenever I go there. The owners are also really great - 2 men who are always friendly and working hard. I think they have been around for like 20 years, maybe longer, so they are definitely doing something right! And they are also always crowded, so that also speaks to the quality of the food. I do wish that they were open for breakfast or at least brunch ... and for dinner ... and on the weekends :)! I would go much more frequently if they were open more often and if they took credit cards. I still try to go as often as I am able whenever I am in the downtown Boca Raton area. If you haven't been to the Tin Muffin, make it a point to go - it's a real treat! Just don't forget your cash. Also, when you look at the menu they may seem a little pricey for what you're getting, but once you taste your apps, meals and muffins or desserts, you will know that it's worth every penny. And don't let your visit fall on a diet day because you simply have to get one of their decadent desserts too. TIN MUFFIN IS A DEFINITE GO!
Went there last night because I hadn't heard of this place, and I know most places in deerfield/boca/delray. Decided to meet a friend there, where the place was small and clean and looked like a very cute typical sushi place. We got there pretty late for a monday night and there were only a couple people there. However, the sushi was THE BEST I've had in a VERY long time. It was fresh and good portioned, presented specialty rolls creatively, which looked amazing. The fish didn't taste like some other places, where the fish can taste a bit fishy/bloody which is gross. We shared a tuna tartar, which was on point. I ordered a rainbow and spicy tuna roll, which were again, excellent. At the end of our meal, the sushi chef and owner Joe came over and brought us a small piece of mochi for us to share. He asked about our meal and then told us a bit about himself. It so happens, he's had MANY years of experience and worked at NOBU for years (if you know good sushi, then you'll know NOBU is on another level) as well as many finer sushi places around the country. He also told us he as a special freezer, which freezes the fish after being butchered to -30Celsius. He explained the importance of it to kill bacteria and better the quality. Awesome place and food, defintely must try.
