50. Pineapple Muffin from Tin Muffin Cafe
Ladies who lunch in Boca Raton are wise to this tiny cafe with the impossible parking situation and a blackboard of daily specials. For a petite smorgasbord, try a soup and salad combo which comes with fresh fruit and best of all, a muffin.

The selection changes daily, but if the pineapple is on offer, do yourself a favor and go tropical. Dense but not dry, the sweet treat is more cake than light morning snack: kudos to whomever successfully campaigned that a muffin is an acceptable breakfast food. Here, it's a fitting dessert for a prim and proper lunch. One caveat: bring cash, as cards are not accepted.
