The best desserts in town!

This place not only has great desserts, but great home made sandwiches. Good selection of drink items, too. This is a regular Sunday brunch kinda place for me. Store front windows - great views, lots of sunshine!

Charming. True to Austin as is was before. Beautiful pastries, breads, and aromas. Wonderful place to spend a weekend morning. Fresh soups and sandwiches. Very relaxed. This is an Austin experience not to be missed. Bring your newspaper or latest read. Employees obviously love it. You will, too. I recommend the cinnamon rolls. Eat them with your fingers, unrolling the... More

Went to Upper Crust Bakery on advice from my wife while visiting Austin. The line for pastries was out the door but moved at a steady pace. The cinnamon rolls were awesome! Not too sweet or sticky but just plain tasty.

I have yet to find anything here that I didn't like. Everything is so fresh and you can taste it. The Italian stew and Cheese soup are both amazing. And I've gotten use to the 1/2-sandwich lunch that comes with soup, chips and a great salsa, as well as a cookie. My go to in the morning is there lemon... More

The Upper Crust is a very popular place on Burnet. We went in when there was a lull and were able to get a good look of their large variety of breads and pastries. We settle on some of their large flaky croissants that are moist and buttery but still with a breadlike quality to them. They are a popular... More

The Upper Crust has a huge variety of freshly baked goods. The cafe offers to go orders, as well as small tables to sip delicious coffee and pastries or their yummy quiche. Highly recommend

A trip to this awesome bakery started the thoughts that if we moved to Austin we would have to live within walking distance of this bakery. They were busy and friendly and more than an ample selection of yummy goodness to satisfy your hunger. The portions were good and even though you got full you were left wanting more. The... More

My husband made a purchase at Upper Crust Bakery, using a Visa card that he very rarely uses. Twenty-four hours later, Wells Fargo contacts him with respect to an attempted fraudulent purchase in the amount of $500 from a Walgreen's some 100 miles away. He immediately contacted the management/owner at Upper Crust to let them know someone at their business... More

I stumbled upon the Upper Crust and boy am I glad I did!!!....At first I did not know "what!" to order. I actually wanted a whole Italian Cream Cake BUT that was not reasonable....so I enjoyed a delicious coffee, cookie and chicken salad sandwich...not in that order of course but I would have gladly (without apology) started with dessert first....fresh-made,...

The casual atmosphere might make you think the food would be average, but the meal I had was fresh and tasty. It is so nice to get greens that have some snap, tomatoes that are red and juicy and soups that have more than a trace of veggies included. Very good food in a casual, comfortable atmosphere.
