We visited today after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to agree with all the lovely, positive comments. A beautiful, quirky little place with very friendly staff who were extremely helpful. And most importantly, possibly the most amazing cupcakes ever! I had the special which was gingerbread flavour, and I can guarantee I will be coming here... More

I love Crumbs, it's one of my top tea shops in York! The cupcakes are always to an excellent standard, and the variety of tea is wide. It is a typically dinky York building though, so it's a good shout if you're in a pair.

Went here today with some flatmates to meet a friend - absolutely beautiful little cafe with amazing cupcakes! The whole experience was wonderful, and the chocolate milkshakes and hot chocolate are to die for too. I will definitely be back to sample the rest of the cupcakes! Thank you to the wonderful staff there too.

Quaint, charming and quirky! Definitely worth a visit - a real gem. My favorite - the all American! The only thing missing is good espresso.

So I took my partner to York to propose at Clifford's Tower and this little place was in my plans. We arrived around 12:00pm. The décor in this Tea room is so cute you cant help but all in love with the place. The service is fantastic and the staff cant do enough for you. The reason why I chose... More

A lovely little cafe, small but perfectly formed. The tasty cupcakes, tea and coffee in vintage mismatched cups and saucers were charming. Sitting inside or out (we sat inside). Super!

Comfy sofa, nice cuppa and very relaxing atmosphere. Great at the end of a busy afternoon. Not too many cakes left at this time of day but surely that is a good sign. Lovely chocolate cupcake.

Really lovely cakes, a very good cup of coffee too. Nice setting, quirky and very different from other places we went for a coffee. We will be back!

lovely selection of cupcakes which were very nice but really wanted a latte but they didn't do lattes or cappuccinos. Also cost more to eat in so we took away. Still yummy.

CrumbsCupcakery, Owner at Crumbs Cupcakery, responded to this review

Hi there Leanne, thank you for your recent review - we are glad you liked the cupcakes. With regards to the latte, sadly we have absolutely no space for a coffee machine. We do all of our baking in our little kitchen and literally every inch of space is used in a morning, so as much as we would love... More
