Bakery - - Crumbs
- Joe Lent
This past Sunday, my wife, son and I discovered a bakery called Crumbs on the upper east side of Manhattan. A certificate in the store indicates that the baked products are under OKS supervision.
There were many interesting looking cakes and unusual varieties of cupcakes and cookies. We shared a cappucino flavored cupcake and found it quite good.
Anyone else have any experience with Crumbs? The menu indicated that the bakery also has a shop on the upper west side and in the Hamptons.
I agree with your assessment of Crumbs. I have found no difference between the two NY locations in terms of product quality, they are both great.
Cupcakes are their specialty, and I was quite impressed. Some flavors are geared for children or for those with a serious sweet tooth, like their Snickers cupcake.
The atmosphere is cozy and they use actual [not disposable] mugs and plates and their [hot] drinks are fantastic as well.
IMHO this is the best place in NYC to stop off for (dairy) dessert or for a (sweet) snack.
Depends on what you consider reliable. The certification is OKS, Rabbi Harry Cohen, who is known for some....interesting opinions on bishul akum.
Incidentally, there's a new Crumbs opening up in that big construction project between 97th and 100th on Columbus (along with Whole Foods, Borders, and other retail).
