MUNCIE, Ind. — If you’ve been waiting for a new scene in Muncie’s local restaurants, you’re in luck. Muncie is home to three new, or at least newly located, eateries.

Currently, Muncie is waiting on the return of Cammack Station and the Barking Cow as they expand their business and prepare for re-opening in the spring.

But if you’re craving Chinese food, specialty donuts or a cup of coffee, these three local eateries are now open for business:

Sweet treats at Purdylicious 

Jeff and Kerri Purdy opened the Purdylicious Sweet Shoppe, which serves coffee, donuts, lemonade and other items, in January of 2021.

Jeff and Kerri Purdy started their business off with just kettle corn, taking the treat to festivals and fairs. From there, the menu grew, and they had a little bit of everything at their booth.

But then the COVID-19 pandemic swept in, cutting off the festival season. That’s when they took their idea of a sweet shop to a brick-and-mortar location.

Since opening on Jan. 6, Purdylicious has offered doughnuts, lattes, bubble tea, coffee and smoothies at its Yorktown shop, located at 9208 W. Smith St.
