“Maraschino cherries count as a fruit serving, right?” joked Kitty Freeze from behind the counter at the Queen City Café & Gallery.
I had wandered into the cafe after a meeting with the Titusville Community Council at the Titusville Health and Aging Center, and my eyes had set on a muffin in the case. This baked good looked healthy enough for the health nut in me, a darker color dotted with red, I thought it must be a multigrain muffin with berries.
Nope. Chocolate cherry.
My hesitation lasted less than a second–I had tasted Kitty’s baking before. I wasn’t disappointed; it was well-worth whatever calorie count it had. Moist and cakey, this muffin is not one to pass up!
A lot of things had changed since I’d been in shortly before their grand opening. Then, the menu had not quite developed, but now, they’re are really expanding their idea of “fast casual.” Whether you eat on the run, or want to take your time, the menu is now loaded with breakfast items, easy-to-snag choices like Cliff Bars, soups, smoothies, and sandwiches.
And for all you high school football fans, they’ve also begun broadcasting Rocket THS football games on their HD TVs.

Speaking of the Titusville Community Council, I was honored to speak just for a quick few minutes about GoCrawfordCounty.com and how community members can publish information in the community news product, just by creating an article directly online, as well as photos and events.
What a room of movers and shakers. Lead by Mike Waychoff of the Titusville YMCA, his group of dedicated community members was resuming their monthly meetings after a break for the summer. Members from groups including the Titusville Area United Way, the Titusville YWCA, and Big Brothers and Sisters of Crawford County, met to discuss how to better serve the needs of the community.
