Best French baked goods anywhere

Great array of breads, croissants, soups; excellent coffee. Most courteous, gracious and helpful staff anywhere. If you eat at one of the tables on the sidewalk outside (you're in a strip-mall parking lot, but it's all worth it), remember to feed the birds, who on a good day seem to dance a... read more

Having lived in and visited France a number of times I can confidently say that the Uppercrust has pastries and breads that are as good if not better than many bakeries (boulangeries and patisseries) in Paris/France. Prices are higher than you will get in most other bakeries in Florida and certainly higher than the local super market BUT the difference... More

With sidewalk tables the Uppercut provides the ambiance of something special. There is wine and all things french. For me, the reason to drop by is for the bread. - It's fresh, crispy and delicious. Buy a croissant and a coffee take a seat at a table and remind yourself that your are in Gainesville not in Paris.

I purchased a ficelle and two croissants. The food transported me back a time when I visited a friend in France. Simply amazing!

If you want a real, mouth-watering croissant or a perfect French batard,the Uppercrust is THE place to go. Choose from an assortment of sweet croissants (chocolate, peach, almond, apricot), or savory ( ham&cheese, spinach and feta),choose from a wide selection of wines and cheeses. Great gifts for food lovers may be found here. Their breads are superb, from baguettes to... More

Nice place to purchase items for a special gathering, a small dinner for two, or just a simple splurge for lunch and/or dessert.

The best bakery in town for desserts in particular. Breads are also good (although there is also another excellent bread bakery, Vine). Definitely try the apricot croissant. Also gourmet items to take out and a few cafe tables on the sidewalk.

I can't believe I finally found a bakery that would rival some of Europe's best. This was my first visit and I bought a loaf of their rosemary bread for $6. I didn't purchase any pastries because of the cost $3.50-4.50 each on average which affects my glycemic index in addition to my sense of values. The bread was fantastic... More
