Crumbs has multiple locations but the Times Square spot is the only one open late. That came in handy for me as I had promised my daughters to bring some home while on a trip recently. Great selection. Got one called Milkshake even tho I wasn't sure exactly what it was and they loved it. All the usual flavors and... More

We tasted the chocolate one and it was incredibly soft and moist. The cream was tasteful and the flavour of chocolate was awesome. They are really big!!!

There are lots of good, interesting shops in NY where you can get a really amazing cupcake. Why anyone would go to Crumbs is beyond me. The cupcakes are admittedly huge, but that's not necessarily a good thing when they're pretty dry and not especially flavorful. It's also annoying that their red velvet cupcake had vanilla rather than cream cheese... More

These were a major let down. Had the grasshopper which the cake was dry and icing too sugary. My husband said his cannoli cupcake was good. The milkshake was just ok. It was a little more moist due to the filling but again the frosting was way to sugary.

I was pretty dissapointed with the cupcakes we purchased. The presentation was really nice they look delicious but that's pretty much where it ends..The icing was gross.. The ratio of shortening you are using in your buttercream is way too high it left a disgusting film in my mouth. The cake itself was not very moist only the center where... More

The cupcakes at Crumbs bake shop are out of this world! I labeled this as a fine dining bake shop because of the pricing. I think it is way too much to spend for breakfast. The cake is really moist and the icing is superb! I attached a photo of their famous colossal cupcake! 25$! You could porbably share that... More

We brought home a cupcake, carrot cake, cookies and a black and white. The cookies were sugar/shortbready but left your mouth coated in Crisco. Not good at all. The black and white and carrot cake were both really good.

The restaurant is small but most of the little shops are in NY the dessert was very good and nobody seemed like they were in a hurry to kick us out so we just enjoyed our stop for an hour or so and then continued on to Macys

One thing that is a plus is their coffees but all of their cupcakes are way too sweet for me or anyone watching their weight. I guess they make money fronm office deals where someone buys a bunch of sweets but I for one cannot eat this sugary stuff.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
