    Okay, so I can not say that I have ever tried them, but I've heard from many reputable food lovers that The Bent Spoon in Princeton has outrageous Blueberry Muffins….and it’s specifically the blueberry ones that are mentioned. Can anyone else out there attest to this?

      I'm a regular and huge fan of Bent Spoon, but I've never seen muffins sold there, maybe it is something new they just started doing?

      I can attest to the unbelievable blueberry muffins at Small World Coffee in Princeton, right down the street. They seem like they are bascially solid blueberrys with a little muffin mix added, and out of this world. Homemade, not too sweet, and almost juicy with blueberry's. I haven't tried them all, but never had a better blueberry muffin in my life than these. Warning: they sell out quick, so get there early or you will miss them.

        I just talked to my friend who said I was wrong...it was not The Bent Spoon but just as frackit said above... Small World Coffee in Princeton! Sorry about that! She also said that apparently when the woman who makes them goes on vacation they don't sell them and people get so upset.

        Thank you - I will go to Small World Coffee early.

        I also found a GREAT Bakery today that had wonderful Blueberry Muffins and everything else as well...

          Had a blueberry muffin from Delicious Orchards - This was very good!! Crispy sugar top - Yummy!

          All opinions are subjective, they have all been very good.

            You make them at home with fresh wild maine bluberries from the roadside fruit stands down by Cape May, the BIG problem with that is you can only get the things for about 2 weeks out of the year:(

              The best blueberry muffin I ever had in NJ was from Conte Farms in Tabernacle.

                That sounds like a must do in this lifetime kind of thing.

                Road Trip Tabernacle cause you guys know this stuff! Thanks much both of you.

                The Flaky Tart had in addition to their regular blueberry muffins, MONSTER blueberry muffins, just to see these made me smile!
                Be warned, they are HUGE and could easily feed 2-4 people!

                  Try Emerys Organic Blueberry Farm in New Egypt.
                  You can pick your own as well.

                    I second Emery's. I've had a couple of their pies and other baked goods and they are excellent. Plus they have a large selection of jams, jellys, butters, etc.

                    And while there, have a burger at the Cassville Inn nearby. (Another thread from a year ago.)

                      Okay, it's not a muffin but What's For Dessert in Spring Lake Heights has the BEST blueberry coffee cake - which is sort of muffin-ish, right? If you have not been there, you should try - I think it's the best bakery around (yes, even including the Flaky Tart). It's on Rt 71.

                        I also second Emery's. The owners, the Marchese family used to have a farm in Howell and they sold all kinds of awesome blueberry things. Unfortuately (for me since it was right near my place of work) they sold the Howell farm so no more blueberries there. But they did open the organic blueberry farm in New Egypt called Emery's Berry Patch.
