Fancy a cupcake? Go to Crumbs Cupcakery on College Street near York Minster. The cupcakes not only look fabulous, but they taste amazing too! With flavours ranging from classic chocolate to caramel, and raspberry swirl cheesecake to chocolate orange, you’re spoilt for choice. Each cupcake is beautifully finished with icing and a decoration, such as a segment of Terry’s chocolate orange or a strawberry. Crumbs Cupcakery doesn’t only specialise in cute cupcakes, but also layer cakes, giant cupcakes and novelty cakes. You can even order bespoke cupcakes for birthdays and special occasions – a perfect gift idea for a flatmate’s birthday.
Set in a quaint little square overlooked by the Minster, this cozy café is a perfect place to meet friends, treat visiting family members, or have a snack after shopping in town. It’s open between 10am and 5pm from Monday to Saturday and between 10am and 4pm on Sundays.
The cosy café has places to sit inside, or on a sunny day you can snack on your cupcake in the shadow of the Minster. Cupcakes can also be taken away and enjoyed elsewhere. Priced at £1.80 to take away and £2.15 to eat in, satisfying your sweet tooth won’t break the bank. With a hot drink, you can expect to spend between £3.95 and £4.35 to eat in.
Students with a love for cake can also get a loyalty card – collect a stamp for each cupcake bought and get the 10th for free. And if the delicious cupcakes and lovely setting haven’t already persuaded you, students get 10% off. It’s well worth a try.
