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...More

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...More

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...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...More
