We have a vacation home on LBI, and every morning my Dad goes to Crust & Crumb to bring yummy baked goods back to the house for our friends and family to enjoy! They have a wide assortment of cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and elephant ears,...which are a large flaky crust, with swirls of cinnamon and sugar, and even chocolate!More

The Crust & Crumb Bakery is one of those old fashioned bakeries that every town should have in it. It has the Sunday doughnut/baked goods that people love, all sorts of twists, pastries, crullers and Italian pastries that are favorites but the only problem is...that they are expensive. Their cinnamon elephant ears that are $3.50 in our local bakery in Bergen County which is a far more expensive place to live are $7.00 here. I think that is over doing it a little, the same with their cookies and other items. Their doughnuts are $1.50 which I thought was fair and I settled on a Boston Cream Doughnut which was delicious. It had a thick chocolate icing top and creamy custard filling. I was impressed. The service is also very nice here and very friendly. Prices aside the bakery is really nice and I would definitely make this part of my visit ti Beach Haven.More

I grew up spending my summer vacations at LBI and it's a place that has so many great memories. The Crust and Crumb bakery was always a delicious part of those summer memories. It's been almost 20 years since I've been on the island and...I just had to have a taste of those delicious elephant ears so I called hoping they could be mailed to Va. I have to say everyone there was helpful and they arrived, tasty as ever. I loved introducing my son to them as well and he too is now hooked. This bakery has been making these for as long as I can remember and they are as good today as they were 30 years ago. Worth the trip to try them!!More

In the nearly 35 years I’ve been going to the Crust &Crumb the only things I’ve ever gotten are the elephant ears (about 10 inch around flat, flakey and crisp pastries swirled a glaze and cinnamon sugar). Importantly, my vegetarian daughter can eat them. It...is impossible to convey in print just how good they are, but even in years when we vacation elsewhere we will find one day each summer to drive 2 hours to LBI, and we are aleays sure to stop in and but half a dozen eats we can freze (they freeze well). I’ve not had anything else though it all looks impressive on displayMore

Best bakery on LBI. Awesome cronuts and some of the best crumb cake anywhere. Get there early because the line backs up quickly and you don’t want to miss the best products!!

We selected a variety of pastries from Crust & Crumb and found them all to be very good, fresh and tasty. We had heard from several people about the elephant ears and they were as good as they were described to us. The bakery had...a line to the door, but the salespeople kept it moving. Easy parking here.More

This is a must when ever we go to Bay Village. They have many delicious treats but their elephant ears are the best!

Everything I have had from this bakery has been great but the absolutely huge elephant ears are the best I have had anywhere.

Last day at the beach we figured we grab some quick donuts to have at the house while packing up. Donuts tasted good but one complaint is the the frosting was still wet at 8:30 in the morning. Made the donuts very hard to eat...especially for young kids Nice staff but pricey $16 for a dozen messy donuts is a little highMore

Stopped in when by the shopping area of Beach Haven and discovered Elephant Ears and Cronuts - yum! This is clearly a local spot and the variety of items all look phenomenal and what we tasted was top notch. I’d highly recommend the baked goods...from here.More
