Stopped in for a loaf of bread because my daughter [whom we were visiting] said it was fantastic. She wasn't lying. Walked out with cookies, another kind of cake square, scone, and a loaf of bread! Went back before we left to bring some bread home on the plane! We were sorry we didn't buy a fruit tart with vanilla... More

I picked up a loaf of chocolate bread under the recommendation of a friend that is made a great French toast. The bread itself was fine, appropriately chewy and crunchy. However, the hype over this place didn't strike me the same way it does others. I think it's just fine, but I wouldn't call it a must.

Great bakery with amazing rye bread. Best thing has to be the vanilla bourbon scones with frosting. Also occassionally have wine tastings.

My wife and I love food. We moved away from Gainesville about a year ago, and this is really the one place we miss above all else. We spent a couple of amazing weeks in Paris and even though we've traveled around the U.S. a little bit, we've never found a French bakery better than this one. Everything is amazing,... More

There must be something about people in Gainesville that makes them rate things on price, not value. Upper Crust, which has been around for a long time, is not a good French pastry shop. In fact, it is not very French. The staff were not familiar with the French names of various of their items for sale, and did not... More

We had a hard time choosing from the lovely assortment of quality pastries and breads. The cream puffs were wonderful! We look forward to going back whenever we are in the area.

I have been going to Upper Crust since the 80's. It is fabulous! Not only are the pastries tasty and melt in your mouth, they are so pretty to look at. Their cakes are delicious and gorgeous as well. I have never been to France so can't compare, but I can not imagine anything in France being better. Besides food,... More

This place is amazing, they have so much good stuff it is hard to choose just what you want, I could spend a lot in here ... they have it all and the service is very good. We had gotten a gift certificate and decided to try it and see what it was about. I had seen ads on TV... More

Wide assortment of specialty items. Probably the best in town and a very popular spot. Outside tables for having coffee and pastry is a nice addition. The place is always busy so they are obviously doing something right. As Rhonda said so many items to choice from can be overwhelming. Delicious breads, always fresh.
