I am so pleased to announce that Crumbs Bakery has opened a Gluten-Free location on the East side of Greenwich Village on E. 8th Street, NYC!! This location opens tomorrow, October 3rd. And it's not just gluten-free cupcakes in a gluten bakery. Nope, not this location. This location/facility/kitchen is dedicated to gluten-free and peanut-free.
From what I have read through the research I did, it appears that Crumbs stock has plummeted in the last few years, almost leaving Crumbs no choice but to re-vamp. And by re-vamping, they decided to dedicate a NYC location to the gluten-free.
I am happy about this for many reasons. I saw a few comments by others on Grub Street mentioning that they were dissatisfied with this news because Crumbs are crap cupcakes. I disagree! So many people LOVE Crumbs! And I think it's so great that there are upscale gluten-free bakeries like Tu-Lu's and Pip's, and then there are bakeries like Crumbs. It's nice to have a range because everyone has a different wallet size.
So I know where I am going to be this weekend. Do you?
Happy cupcake eating!!
