Very Simply: The Best Bakery in Gainesville

There isn't much to say about Uppercrust except it's the best in Gainesville... hands down, no question, no discussion. It's one of the best bakeries we have ever visited, and we've gone to a lot. The things we frequent most are the Butter Loaf, the pain au chocolat, the chocolate/raspberry pastry... read more

Went to the fish store next door this morning, and when I saw the line out the door, had to see what all the fuss was about. They have a wonderful assortment of breakfast items including huge flaky flavored croissants, an extensive selection of wines and champagnes, plus traditional breads. Don't let its location in a little strip mall throw... More

Located in a strip mall, this came recommended by a local and Uppercrust has outstanding croissants. I haven't had a chance to try anything else yet, but everything in the pastry cases looked good, and they had a nice array of some great looking breads. I checked out their menu online to get a clue before I got there and... More

Excellent breads and the best Croissants! Fantastic collection of Wines from France, Spain, South America (Chile & Argentina) as well as California wines. Complimentary wine tasting every Saturday 12 - 4PM, providing excellent selection and variety of wines. Don't forget to also check the refrigerators with wonderful selection of cheeses, and other goodies.

I went there with high expectations which were immediately deflated by soggy pastries. Not only were they of poor quality and at least a day old but the prices were ridiculous. It is pastry after all. They had a nice selection of overpriced French wine but in Gainesville there isn't much of a election anywhere else either. This could be... More

Everything from Uppercrust is fantastic. I especially love their butterscotch chocolate chip scones, with frosting. I make trips just for the scones but always end up buying fresh bread and other treats. You can't go wrong by going to Uppercrust!!

I am a regular customer and I never had a bad product, everything I buy is great! The rosemary bread, butter rolls, tea cakes, chocolate cake, all breakfast pastries and they also have a great wine selection in the back with other goodies to tempt you. This bakery is a must go to.
