Sweeping Away Crumbs

Several alert “06880” readers have sent emails, noting that Crumbs is closed.

It’s not the 1st time the pricey cupcakery has shut its right-behind-Tiffany doors.

In July 2014, the parent company announced it was closing all 66 locations.

A few months later, it reopened.

Westport has survived worse. The beloved Great Cakes is no more, but owner Rick Dickinson is selling his great cupcakes (and more) at retail outlets like Calise’s and Peter’s Weston Market.

Will we miss Crumbs? Did anyone ever go there? And if so, why?

    I went there once. That was enough.

  2. Ann Marie Flynn

    Nope! I just pressed my nose against the window outside and imagined all that sugar on my waist……well! That was enough for me.

  3. I didn’t get as close to the window as Ann Marie!

  4. I did try their cupcakes a few times which were fine, but after a while, they were serving stale product. Cute only gets you so far…

  5. Miss a chain run (and ruined, as usual) by a private equity firm? Nope.

  6. I went to Crumbs a few times in late spring, when Starbucks was too crowded/slow and found I liked having an iced coffee there- bright and roomy and I got some writing done.

  7. I’m surprised they lasted this long.

  8. Thanks for telling us that Rick’s cupcakes can be purchased at Calises or Peter’s Weston Market Dan.
