Chubby Chasing 

Side Dishes: Here comes the muffin shop

According to The Skinny Pancake co-owner Benjy Adler, The Chubby Muffin should be open by the end of July. The shop on Oak Street in Burlington’s Old North End is the local chain’s newest property.

When it opens, the spot will serve muffins and coffee in the morning and localvore snack-bar fare — ice cream, hot dogs and “the most affordable local beef burger in town” — in the afternoo n.

Right now, “The space is already being used as a prep kitchen, a staging ground for [Skinny Pancake] events and [an] office,” Adler says. The owners are also letting City Market use it for a series of biweekly cooking classes. The next one, on July 13, teaches participants to craft and can no-sugar and low-sugar jams — which could come in handy once those muffins appear.
