New Guy at Joe

In sync with the changing seasons, Joe in Grand Central has brought out several new baked goods to add to their traditional arsenal.
A few weeks ago (and at the recommendation of one of the friendlier baristas) I had the pleasure of trying this muffin:
The “berry cardamom” option was true to its name. Cardamom never fails to remind me of the chai made by my host family in India and as if on cue, after one bite I was transported back several years to the kitchen table at which I first learned of this wonderful spice.
The blueberries and raspberries played well with the cardamom, no one flavor overpowering the other. The texture was on the softer side but I honestly wouldn’t have had it any differently. All in all an excellent muffin and a wonderful addition to the pastry case.
