Good food

Lots of vegan options amongst good healthy homemade food. Really tasty and fresh. The choice was good and all based on a healthy life style with a few naughty treats.

Pros: Good choice, Nice coffee, Helpful staff

Vegan sweets

I was first confused about this place, as when I passed I only saw the sign advertising vegan coffee, and thought it was a bit of a joke. When we came back later we found out that they have many vegan savory and sweet pastries. We had a filled whole grain sandwich which was a bit dry and not so tasty. We also tried the Ferreros and a cream filled cake that reminded me a bit of "Kinder Pinguin" both was quite tasty. We came back later and tried the Snickers and Lila Pause bar. The Lila Pause bar was really delicious😄

Love this place!

So much delicious vegan food (sweet and savoury) and the staff are also lovely! I’ve been here nearly every day on my trip to Crete and tried a selection of the food. The ice cream is delicious and the cakes are Devine. Definitely recommend trying this place.

Vegan ice cream

5 stars for the vegan ice cream. It was great. I tried several flavors over a few different days. All except one are vegan and many others are gluten free (as of 10/08/22. I’m not sure if they rotate flavors). I also tried the vegan snickers bar, but it wasn’t very good. All the baked goods are clearly labeled if they’re vegan (as well as several other labels including gluten free)

Pros: Vegan ice cream , Vegan options , Gluten free options

Sugar free everything is unnecessary

I had planned to go to crumb for dinner as I noticed they are open late but unfortunately they don’t prepare fresh food for the evenings so it was only a few leftover sandwiches. I went for dinner somewhere else and came back for some ice cream. There were 7 vegan ice cream flavours, I chose Ferraro.

It’s sugar free which impacted the texture of the ice cream and made it quite hard and icy. I would have preferred regular ice cream. I’m a dietitian and sweeteners are not necessarily any healthier than sugar- carbs aren’t bad for you! I looked at the ingredients and they use a lot of maltitol which may be a problem for IBS sufferers.

I had also asked to try the rum and raisin flavour as I was thinking of getting it but the lady wouldn’t let me try before buying.

Many vegan options!

In fact so many that it was hard to choose. Went with the lemon pie and the bounty bar. The pie filling was delicious but the crust and the bounty bar were unfortunately very dry, could be because they were glutenfree ans sugarfree? Didn’t make me go back, but it was definitely nice to see so many vegan cakes in the middle of the city.

Yummy pancakes

My wife and I went there for breakfast, she had the pancakes and I had the avocado toast.
The pancakes were very good with a delicious chocolate cream! However I didn’t enjoy the avocado toast, it lacked flavour.
Many other options looked nice though, so I would go there again.

I love this bakery! All items are clearly marked with their ingredients, so this is the perfect place to come and get something sweet with your tea or coffee.

I had the peanut butter snickers bar and it was delicious.

Large variety of delicious in-house vegan treats

Wide selection of delicious in-house made vegan treats. Several kinds of vegan hot chocolate. Friendly staff, vegan and vegetarian items clearly marked with a little icon (I believe the same for paleo, gluten free, kid friendly, etc).

Disastrously - Beware!

We ordered two Iced Matcha Lattes with almond milk and they served us them with cows milk! I explicitly mentioned almond milk when I placed the order.
I also wanted a vegan bowl and they were out of stock of produce. After this further disappointment, I wanted to make my own bowl and only after taking my order from the waitress did she tell me this was not possible! I could hardly believe it! Actually, we should have pulled the rip cord at this point. But I ordered a falafel sandwich because I was so hungry. This came and was also a huge disappointment! I can't recommend this place, if you are looking for a proper vegan food place in Heraklion, go further!

Cons: Inattentive staff, Quickly overwhelmed, Not suitable for vegans

Would give 5 stars if I could!

Crumb is located on Heraklion‘s main square, close to the lion fountain, so it really is a prime location and a great place to do some people watching. How nice to discover a place offering vegan options in such a great spot!
Unfortunately it is not a veggie place, but there are so many vegan choices! It was seriously hard to choose what to take.
In the end we opted for a pastry filled with a cream of hazelnuts, almonds and peanuts and the homemade ginger lemonade. We shared the pastry since it was huge.
We also took away a baclava to share in the evening.
Both dishes were really nice - very sweet, but worth a try!
The staff at Crumb were so friendly and helpful and explained all the vegan options to us. It was a great place to sit, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
I wish this was closer to our hotel so that we could go each day and explore all the vegan treats they offer!

Wonderful choices

We love this place! Yes it’s not totally vegan, but their vegan choices are lovely. Right in the middle of Heraklion, next to the lions fountain is this cafe. We went three times. Our favourites are the cheese pie, spinach pie, sugar-free paste cake and the ice cream. Super tasty!! A couple of the cakes and the sandwiches were a little dry so we stuck to the mousse type cakes and pastries. We would definitely recommend. A minutes walk from here is a little play area to eat at too.

Pros: Vegan pastries, Olive oil ice cream

Perfect for vegan desserts

I was so impressed with crumb it seems that there are more vegan options than not. All but one of the ice cream flavours are vegan, and there’s various other sweets to choose from.
They even give you a complimentary vegan coffee cake with any sit down order (I bought some more to go too).
The staff are so friendly and helpful! I came in the evening after food service had stopped, but they showed me the menu which included vegan breakfasts, pancakes and a burger. Such a good atmosphere here too, would seriously recommend!!

Pros: So much vegan pud!! , Helpful staff , Cheap ice-cream!

Great Café with lots of vegan options

Great cake and vegan cappuccino/Café freddo.
Only negative point: my lemon/ginger/oat milk drink tasted just like banana milkshake.
