Crumbs coming to Los Feliz
Is dessert recession-proof? Expanding New York-based cupcake chain Crumbs is betting that even with the economy in shambles, consumers will pony up $3 for cupcakes.*
With a store in Beverly Hills and one in Larchmont Village, the company will open its newest outpost at 1856 N. Vermont Ave., former home of Los Feliz Lock & Key Services (now around the corner at 4647 Russell Ave.) and half a block north of Skylight Books. Opening date hasn't been finalized; might be as early as mid-November or as late as January. More details to come.
