Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get a dozen cupcakes at Crumsby’s Cupcake Café in Oak Bay (a $15 value).
Crumsby’s Cupcake Café fashions tasty, colourful treats from scratch in a multitude of flavours that run the gamut from classic to unexpected. Cupcakes are baked on-site in small batches with quality ingredients for a fresh, nostalgic taste that trumps teething on a carousel slide projector. Traditionalists can enjoy chocolate-on-chocolate or vanilla-on-vanilla treats, and confectionary mavericks can gobble a tiramisu or toasted-marshmallow cupcake. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available for sweet-teeth with special dietary needs. Crumsby’s is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- The interior was just adorable and the display cases just made me want to eat everything in sight. And best of all, they have GLUTEN-FREE CUPCAKES!!! Amazing. – Joey T., Yelp
- it's an excellent place where you can let your child play with some cool toys and socialize with other children, while the parents can have a great coffee, or even a nice lunch. – Carlita, Urbanspoon
