Humble Crumb Bakery in Sherwood

T

The family-owned Humble Crumb Bakery in Sherwood started selling their goods in local farmers’ markets and quickly graduated into their own commercial kitchen space, albeit a tiny one. Fast forward to 2017 and a relocation to an old daycare at 110 Loop Road, which was renovated and converted into a dine-in/takeout community bakery, gift shop, and small-occasion event space. It is a beautiful space, complete with an outdoor porch.

Humble Crumb’s growth has been steady, thanks in large part to its centerpiece item that draws crowds, the wildly popular cinnamon roll. It is one of the very best you will find in Arkansas. Do not believe me? Go find out for yourself. With an ample portion of icing and a perfect balance of flavors, it is sure to delight. It is doughy and soft to the bite, with each crevice packed with a punch of cinnamon.

This cinnamon roll comes in two sizes, a manageable-for-one-person, smaller version and an overwhelmingly big offering that is nearly impossible to finish. I tend to choose the former, but I would not hold it against you for opting for the latter.

And while the Humble Crumb’s menu is fairly small, the bakery is not a one-trick, cinnamon roll pony. The fluffy, bacon-loaded quiche might be just as impressive. In fact, I challenge you to find better. The same goes for the subtly sweet Blueberry Ricotta Scone with a heavy drizzle of icing. The iced coffee is outstanding, as are the smoothies, which, thankfully, are not made overly sweet. I am also eagerly anticipating trying out the much talked about muffins, biscuit and gravy, and chicken salad on future visits. Humble Crumb even does an Iron Skillet Breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, and a biscuit with butter and jelly.

Truth be told, I am guessing there is only one thing you will not enjoy about Humble Crumb—their hours. As of this writing, they are only open on Friday (6 a.m.-noon) and Saturday (7 a.m.-noon). Scratch-made items mean attention to detail, which translates to limited days and hours for the bakery. I respect their desire to not value quantity over quality, a rare trait in this era. Be forewarned, however, the demand is strong, so larger orders need to be placed in advance. The dining room is currently closed, but Humble Crumb has mastered the drive-thru experience for the smaller, impromptu orders. My recent visit took about 5-10 minutes from start to finish.

All this talk has me planning my next visit up to Sherwood.

Those cinnamon rolls are calling my name.

Did You Know?

Humble Crumb bakes to order, so please give them advance notice of at least 2-3 hours for larger orders or more than a dozen cinnamon rolls.
