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.

The Gateau Marisa cake and Carrot cake are fantastic. Best carrot cake that I have ever had and the Gateau Marisa cake is a wonderful experience all its own. The bakery has a good bit of seating to enjoy and outside seating as well. Parking is a bit of an issue but it is on a busy corner. I drive... More

The coffee was good. The brownie was made with to much coco. The coconut cream pie had a chocolate layer on the bottom, not good...the filling was awesome except for that.

The pastry selection was good but was not too excited about what I got. I had not been in a while so maybe the luck of the draw. No more free coffee refills; I guess inflation is tough on everybody.

The bakery is wonderful. So many things to choose from although I only bought the carrot cake - it was wonderful and not too sweet or too orange - just right. But the biggest surprise was their lunch. I had no idea they served food here, but they do and it's worth a visit. Not in a business lunch sort... More

I've travelled and lived in Texas for 35 years and have yet to find another bakery with the same quality and variety of baked goods. The prices are reasonable.
