I got a chance to visit Crust and Crumb early Christmas Eve morning. This is a new place downtown and it is going to be a great addition to the businesses there. Located beside 20/20 Optical on Bruce Street, the Crust and Crumb is bringing New York style sandwiches, an Italian bakery, and gourmet coffee to downtown.
Crust and Crumb has a location in Gatlinburg and opened the Sevierville business last Wednesday. Only in business a few days, I think that they are off to a great start.
They make all their own pastries. I wanted one of each.
You may recognize Jackie Diaz because she sells bagels and other delights during the summers at the Sevierville Downtown Farmer’s Market. They most often sell out so I expect bagels to be an ‘in demand item’ at Crust and Crumb.
I arrived just after 7:00 a.m. and opening time for the Crust and Crumb so I got a quick glimpse of kitchen creations. Tony Diaz was icing a Red Velvet cake and Jackie Diaz was creating some Black Forest Brownies.
I can’t wait to try one of these some day!
I regretted not buying a Cannoli on my last trip to New York City. Now, we can get them in Sevierville! Unbelievable.
There is a beautiful espresso machine to make specialty coffees. My skim latte was superb!
Brittany is an excellent barista and can create your favorite caffeine delight.
In addition, there are some ‘grab and go’ cafe Americano coffees as well. They were good blends too. I know these things….
Tony Diaz with the finished Red Velvet cake, beautifully finished. I think that you can buy a cake or buy a slice.
Downtown workers and visitors can grab a coffee and a newspaper to-go at the Crust and Crumb.
Those looking for lunch can order New York style sandwiches piled high with Boar’s Head meat. Specialties will be corned beef, Ruebens, and the High Rise sandwich piled with one pound of roast beef on rye.
There is a nice assortment of beverages for breakfast and for lunch.
Tony Diaz said that after 4 months of work, the business is open and things are going well. He said, ” The community has been very welcoming and we appreciate it.” After things settle down, they plan to offer home made breads and possibly a delivery service downtown. Free Wi-Fi is also on the list.
The New York artwork on the walls adds to the charm and will transport you to the Empire State.
I have a feeling that the Crust and Crumb will become a popular addition to downtown Sevierville. Certainly, the food and coffees will provide a taste of New York that we don’t get a lot of in our town. This is an exciting addition to our breakfast and lunch scene and I can’t wait to return with friends. It adds another great place to be out and about in Sevierville.
