About Us

There is no break like a Muffin Break

From a little Canadian shop trying to make a name for itself back in the 1980s to what you see today, Muffin Break over the last 24 years has been passionately doing what it does best – giving people a place to enjoy fresh coffee, delicious food and great service with friends.
