Anyone Remember this Place in Lexington Center?

Hey folks,

This is a pretty odd question, but something made me think of this place the other day, and I was trying (and failing) to remember its name, or really anything significant about it.

Back in the late 80s (I think) there used to be a place in Lexington, right in Lexington Center in that building where the banks, and Mario's Restaurant and the bookstore are, that sold homemade English Muffins. It was, as far as I remember, their only product. They came in little plastic bags of half a dozen or so, a little stack of them, and they came in several varieties, and they were REALLY good.

I remember the place was all the rage when it first opened, or at least it was with me and my family. We went there quite a bit. I think they got quite a bit of press coverage, too, and good reviews. My recollection is that they only sold them for take-out -- they didn't serve anything there or anything. But I could be wrong about that.

I also could be wrong about them calling their product English Muffins -- they might have called them Scones, but I don't *think* so.

I have long since left the area, first to downtown Boston (North End) and more recently to New York, but I still remember that little place and their English Muffins very fondly. They had a really good, if somewhat unconventional, product and I always thought they had a chance to be the Next Big Thing.

That never happened, but I'm hoping, at least, that the people who started it didn't end up losing money or anything.

Does anybody else remember the place, perhaps what it was called, and does anyone know whatever became of it or the person/people who started it? I'd love to know.
