This Tiny Shop In Michigan Serves Pasties To Die For
If you’ve visited Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, you’ve almost certainly indulged in a delicious pasty. These delectable meat and vegetable-filled baked treats are a classic in the U.P — it’s nearly impossible to make the trip northward without seeing signs along the road advertising the best pasties around. But there’s one small shop in the town of Munising that stands out among the rest: Muldoons Pasties & Gifts, located off of M-28 West.
At first glace, passersby might not recognize Muldoons as a pasty shop. Its quaint location in a yellow house is part of its charm and appeal.
One step into Muldoons, however, will make it clear that the pasty shop is a place where truly delicious things happen. The undeniable scent of baked dough and hearty fillings will make your mouth water.
Muldoons has been hand-making pasties on site since 1989, when it was opened by Dale and Sally Beckwith. While ownership has since been passed on, the shop continues to pride itself on offering high-quality fresh ingredients.
So, what’s on the menu? Muldoons keeps it simple with three primary pasty options: original beef, chicken, and vegetable. If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can also pick up a delectable dessert pasty — flavors include apple, cherry, and blueberry.
Each pasty’s crust is homemade at Muldoons and baked to just the right level of crispiness and flavor. It’s hard to go wrong with any of the hearty options offered.
