Like the last person said, overpriced, over iced, dry and generally tasteless. We were also at Union Station and saw the cupcakes. They look pretty but we're a total waste of money and calories! The only reason I'm giving them a two is because the servers were nice.

Crumb cup cakes look like they should be delicious but that is about it. They are rather dry, over iced and rather tasteless. We happened to be in Union Station and decided to get them for a treat. Unfortunately we used our eyes instead of some of our other senses. What I would call all icing and average at best.

I've been to Crumbs twice in the past few weeks. The young women working at the counter were very friendly (perhaps this is a newer crew?) and my order was processed quickly. Both times, I ordered the strawberry cupcake, which is my favorite. I've had other flavors in the past and those were not as tasty, in my opinion. However,... More

Crumbs is located in Union Station, ideal for passengers taking train or bus to savor a cupcake. They come in many different varieties and taste good. However, it does not come cheap, one may cost around $5-6, at par with a sandwich for lunch. The ladies at the counter serving customers are ok too. If somebody has a sweet tooth... More

Crumbs is one of those places where you can get a quick cupcake gift ...but they're kind of like the cupcakes at Whole Foods in that they look really nice but the flavor is not always there. This is located very close to the train gates in Union Station, not near all the rest of the food like Chipotle or... More

Upon approaching the counter, the two ladies working just ignored us as if the other one would tend to us. Eventually one stepped up and asked what we wanted. I got the zesty lemon cupcake and loved it and wife got a peanut butter cookie and she enjoyed hers. Very flavorful, but the service needs work. After she swiped my... More

Although this is not my favorite cupcake shop it is good. The service is fast and they have all types of cupcakes. They also have cup cakes that are big enough for a birthday celebration. In case you work downtown and don't have time to pick up food for the office party consider this place

We just decided to stop into Union Station while in DC, even though we weren't traveling through it due to the architecture of the building. I did research beforehand, so I knew this location was there, figured we'd stop in for an afternoon snack in between sightseeing. Lots of options on flavors, pretty decent sized cupcakes as well. Tasted pretty... More

I LOVE cupcakes! I have had MANY cupcakes in my lifetime. I wasn't really sure what I was getting when I ordered. First, I was worried about the freshness. You never know how long cupcakes have been sitting there - I was thinking especially in Union Station. Second, I'm a frosting lover. I like a LOT of frosting and these... More

What a great variety of cupcakes. Certainly a place to stop off if you want to treat yourself. I always have problems figuring out which cupcake I should pick. I like the grasshopper the best. But I've decided to try others as well. The cupcakes range from the very basic, chocolate frosting, vanilla cake to much more elaborate ones with... More
