The owners of Crumbs in Dolphin Lane, Boston will be celebrating 10 years of business tomorrow (Saturday).

Sunday will be the official milestone for the Dolphin Lane business owned by Carol Rate and Debbie Watts and the business – which is closed on Sundays – will celebrate the occasion this Saturday.

To help their customers celebrate the business has teamed up with the Boston Standard to offer a free drink – any drink off the menu – to readers, on production of the coupon in this week’s Standard.

Carol and Debbie believe the business has gone from ‘strength to strength’ over the past 10 years, starting life as a basic take-away offering 30 seats and evolving over time to a fully fledged eat-in café offering 74 seats.

Debbie said: “The time has flown by. We are very proud of Crumbs, it’s gone from strength to strength and we’re proud to be associated with it.”

Carol added: “The staff we have are also proud to be associated with the business.”

She said: “A lot has changed over the last 10 years, it’s doubled in size, the windows have been done, we did the air conditioning, added an extraction fan, the friers and more.

“The majority of our service is now sit-ins.”

The cafe has even recently started advertising on boards at Boston Town.

The pair said they’ve probably fed every business on Dolphin Lane in the past decade.

They added they were hoping to carry on and continue strengthening in the future.

Crumbs, which is open from 7.30am-2.30pm, serves a variety of tasty meals and snacks, including specially-made triple-decker sandwiches and a choice of salad.

They offer a huge tea-room menu including a £3.50 all-day breakfast which includes two eggs, two sausages, bacon, tomatoes, beans, chips and two rounds of toast, served on a 14in platter.

The staff at Crumbs are friendly and highly trained and all the food is locally-sourced, with the cafe reaching top marks in health and safety ratings from Boston Borough Council for the past two years.
