Speedy service, great taste, prime area in manhattan and the staff is friendly.
The name of this place makes you think they only serve breakfast, but they serve lunch and dinner as well. Their prices are decent especially considering that it is located in the heart of manhattan. It is extremely busy during the peak hours of breakfast and lunch. I stopped by this morning for a toasted everything bagel with vegetable cream cheese, and it was perfect. They have a large selection of cream cheese and their bagels are freshly made daily. The line was super long but they seem to have a good system in place to help move the lines quickly. My sister had scrambled eggs and home fries and she was very satisfied. So satisfied that she had a very late and small lunch. The food is fresh. They have a large selection of sandwiches for lunch. This place accepts credit cards with a $5 minimum. They offer delivery to the residents and employees in the area for a minimum order of $5.
With todays ease of technology, I rarely go out and buy as many books as I used to. Nevertheless, Barnes and Noble continues to be one of my favorite passtimes. I love browsing through their collections of books. And I like to see which is the next book that I want to get my mind wrapped around. Though I have been reading all my books in the last 3-4 years in PDF format, I still find myself buying that book that I feel like I must have in hard copy. I also find myself buying a lot of childrens books.
I stopped by over the weekend and enjoyed a muffin while reading one of their books off the shelf, for free, at the caf. This location has a very small caf, but nine times out of ten I have gotten a seat there. So, I will say thats cool. I also enjoy going to the 2nd floor, after walking through the maze of displays towards the front area. They have a great space to read to children on the 2nd floor. My little one loves coming here and enjoys hours of reading as well.
The staff at this location for the most part is friendly and have been helpful. This store has a large selection of magazines.
Never before have I tried such deliciousness in a cupcake. Our visit to crumbs was perfect. The place is clean, the staff is courteous and they have tables to rest. A perfect stop when in the city and you just want to unwind a bit. Besides cupakes they also have coffee and leomonade. Since you are looking at a high intake of calories, this is one of those places you go for a special treat on occassions. This is the size of cupcake that you dig in with a spoon. You may even want to share a cupcake with a friend or two. So sit around with your friends and dig up.
Only one thing that was hillarious and a bit unexpected from this last visit. That was that they now have a cupcake (not sure how long they have had it) called "Baba Booey". I have a few trucker friends and I know that "Baba Booey" is the advertising call and nickname for gay drivers on the CB radio used by truckers to communicate with one another. So it was crazy for me to have seen that they actually have one of their products by this name.
I had a "Raspberry Swirl", it has the tasty raspberry jelly in the middle of a moist vanilla cake. This one is not too overwhelming in sweetness.
"Caramel Apple" is another one of my favorite. It has chunks of apple filling which makes this cupcake so rich and tasty. This one is very sweet.
My little one picked up a "S'Mores". It is rich in chocolate and it was a bit too much for him. A very busy chocolate cupcake topped with marshmellows and graham crackers over chocolate frosting. I will deffinitely stick to the little cupcakes for children.
I am thinking of returning to try a "Margarita", which is the cupcake of this month. I wonder what surprise is in the middle.
