We were on our way back to the hotel when we Found this place. We had two different cronut, cinnamon and Apple pie, and loved the both. The one named Apple pie was too big for one person, but other than that it was a...More

This shop recently reopened after closing for several months. Quite frankly, the cupcakes were better before reopening. I went this morning and bought a cupcake - it was so stale it was crunchy. I would guess that it was at least three days old, maybe...More

Crumbs has excellent variety and always offers something new. I am glad that the federal street location is now open on Saturdays and has half price cupcakes on Friday nights!

This is a true experience. The employees are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the product to insure you get exactly what you are looking for, and these cupcakes exceed expectations. For a person like me who is a total dessert-a-holic, this place is very addicting....More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
