Best Bakery on LBI

Excellent elephant ears, chocolate pretzels, crumb buns, etc. Can't type that long... If you have never seen or tried an elephant ear, you don't know what you're missing. Friendly atmosphere, fresh food and a great experience.

Great product: delicious buns and Elephant Ears, but terribly expensive! Even for LBI, this place has gotten ridiculous. The staff also tends to give the impression that they are doing you a favor in serving you.

Everything looks great in the cases - but very disappointing when it came to taste. We purchased a pie for the adults - very bland, tasted like mass produced canned fruit (for the price you'd expect more home-made fresh fruit), and the cookies didn't taste fresh at all. We've had better baked goods from Murphy's Market in the center of... More

An absolute "must" when we visit the shore. Get here early because even though the selection is huge and they crank out donuts, elephant ears and bagels all morning long, you might miss the good stuff if you come later in the day. The kids who work here for the summer are polite and helpful and the treats are worth... More

I must stop here every summer for Crumb Buns. Being a Jersey girl living in another state where I can't find them makes them a very special treat once a year! Everything is delicious. A great selection of baked goods from cookies to sticky buns, cakes and cupcakes, donuts, etc.

This is the best doughnut shop around on the island. It has a great assortment of doughnuts. All are fresh and they are real doughnuts, with jelly oozing from the jelly doughnuts and they have a great Boston Cream doughnut. This is not dunkin Donuts franchise type junk, but good, old fashioned doughnuts like you might recall from your childhood.... More

Have been visiting the crust and crumb for many many summers spent on LBI and it is always one of our first stops. If you haven't had an elephant ear you must try. The crumb cake was also fabulous!

As a kid, my family went to the Jersey Shore every year. The Crust & Crumb was always a special treat. Now, 40+ years later, my husband and I stopped on a quick trip down the shore. It brought back so many happy memories and yes, the elephant ears are just as good! If you're in the area it is... More
