Magnolia Bakery opens early for weekend breakfast muffins


Magnolia Bakery, which opened in Omotesando in June, will now open an hour earlier on weekends (10 a.m.) to serve freshly baked, moist muffins. The selection will include two or three out of six flavors, such as raisin bran (pictured), banana, and poppy-seed with lemon glaze (¥280 each), all baked to the same recipes used at Magnolia’s New York branches. Be prepared to wake up early: The store attracts a long line on weekends, and once the muffins are gone, they’re gone.
