The birthplace of the legendary Garfield cartoon strip, Muncie Indiana is a charming mid-sized city with a large emphasis on local history and culture, from its extensive range of public art to its various local festivals. This emphasis on the local is carried through into its dining scene, with a number of unique local restaurants to choose from. Here we profile Muncie’s top 10 local restaurants.
Concannon’s Pastry Shop is a Muncie institution, run by the same family for two generations. The interior is charmingly designed, and is split into two parts, the bakery and a café area with a friendly, open atmosphere. The highlight of Concannon’s Pastry Shop however, is its delicious range of baked goods. Doughnuts are airy and soft, with just the right amount of glaze to add an extra sweet, gooey kick. Their cream filled long-johns remain one of their most popular items, while their freshly baked, flakey croissants can be customised with a variety of sweet or savoury toppings, making it the perfect spot for a lazy breakfast or lunch.
