i live in stamford and can't wait for crumbs. people are going to go nuts around's in a great, heavily trafficked location.
Crumbs is pretaaay good. I was there at the opening on Larchmont in LA. I got a free cupcake, Boston Creme. I do prefer Sprinkles in Beverly Hills tho, maybe I'm old fashioned.
