Donuts are delicious, elephant ears are as tasty as they are ginormous, and they really do know how to make a great cake (both from a taste and presentation/design standpoint). The best part is that they are open until the evening on weekends!! Bay village pizza followed by an elephant ear for dessert? Win!!

Elephant ears are a must - flaky, gooey, cinnamon & sugar. Love when the sugar gets sticky. Always get extra napkins. Also, the powdered cream donut. I did like pudding cream but they also have buttercream which is a big hit. Both are super rich but oh so good.

Go here every morning when we vacation on LBI. Their sticky buns are some of the best we've ever tasted. Oh yeah and don't forget to have their incredible crumb/coffee cake as well. Amazing!

This bakery is known for it's sticky buns and cinnamon buns. Despite my vow to not overindulge, I had to try the buns. One day I got the cinnamon buns and the next day I went back for the stocky bun. Both types were excellent and I had to leave quickly before I started ordering the many other wonderful looking... More

I have been a fan of the Crust and Crumb Elephant Ear for too many years to admit. I have raved about them to just about anyone who will listen to me. This summer, however, I have found them to be disappointing. They just aren't as sticky, crisp or flaky as usual. I'm guessing that economics have changed the recipe... More

I am glad this place doesn't exist where I live or I would be 500 lbs! But the crumb cake and cinnamon buns are delish! We also got some bagels from here, good as well. There was a line outside waiting for them to open at 7:30.

Fresh donuts that make you want to eat more than one. Wish they opened earlier in the morning. Busy place so you know they're good.
