Morgantown Edition: Apple Annie's Bakery

Apple Annie's - MorgantownApple Annie's in Point Marion, PA, has been drawing West Virginians keen on giant, toppling pieces of pie for years. And, now, Morgantown has its very own location.

Apple Annie's - MorgantownI have to admit, my last experience at Apple Annie's was not my favorite. I went for desserts, and when I asked what something was, the person behind the counter rolled his eyes and asked what was on top, and this exchange continued a few more times with various desserts (I wanted more detail as opposed to what was just on top), until I gave up and left. But, I wanted to keep an open mind with the Morgantown location, and the food has always been great - so, let's do it.

Apple Annie's Bakery opened on Don Knotts Boulevard across from the car dealership (near a former golf business). I went around the Fourth of July, when they were JUST opening, so no signage was complete, but they did have lots of red, white and blue decorations. And, there is an actual bakery here in the basement - it's not just a satellite location. It's a full-fledged bakery (no restaurant or real dining space, though).

Apple Annie's - MorgantownI tried a few items: a blueberry muffin, a spinach and feta briolle and a lemon cupcake.

Apple Annie's - MorgantownThe blueberry muffin, which is one of my favorite muffins by the way, was good. I'm a fan of the crystallized sugar that gives it a bit more texture, but even though this lacked that, it was moist, filled with blueberries and tasty.

Apple Annie's - MorgantownThe briolle was fun because I don't think I've ever had a briolle before? The spinach and feta is one of my favorite combos, so this was a no-brainer. Savory and fabulous.

Apple Annie's - MorgantownThe cupcake was probably my least favorite of the bunch. The icing was super dense and kinda hard. But, the flavor of the cake itself was tasty.

Apple Annie's - MorgantownSo, overall, I love the idea of a new bakery in Morgantown. And, I'm a big fan of their muffins. I think the donuts and cupcakes lacked a bit for my personal preference. But, I'm excited to go back and continue to try their new offerings!
