Fluffy, mouth watering, flavorful orange cranberry scone. Really generous in size, too. You will not be disappointed. Stroll down the shops of Venice, FL and have a treat!

Found them on TripAdvisor, and so glad we did! Had lunch there there separate times. And guys - don't let the tea-room look fool you - they have some great hearty fare as well. Try the roast beef with amazing horseradish sauce and sweet potato fries - you'll see what I mean. The desserts are wonderful - very fresh, and... More

The breakfast is so good here people wait outside for a table. Do not miss the Devonshire Cream and Scone! You can even have it with strawberries! It is a must. The coffee is great and you can enjoy breakfast and lunch.

The title should say it all. We did a large breakfast one day and coffee and pastries another. The scones are out of this world, not dry like some scones can be. The pecan sweet roll was also a tasty treat. We got that one to go and had dessert. It is vacation after all!

This bakery has been downtown Venice for years now and these gals that run it make thee best homemade baked goods. Absolutely everything that I have tried there is amazing. Just looking into their display case is a mouth watering experience. Everything tastes so fresh. Go indulge!!

We were visiting family in Venice, they wanted to take us to breakfast. The Upper Crust was wonderful. Many desserts to choose from. The french toast was amazing! When we come back to Venice, we will be sure to come back to Upper Crust. Our service was great as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed this quaint spot for breakfast. Had Eggs Benedict with crab - it was fantastic! Didn't have a chance to taste the scones, but heard they are to die for. Nice atmosphere and great coffee!
