Called in on our way through with the family - looking for somewhere to have some morning coffee and some cakes. Inside is a "shabby chic" kind of affair. Cakes were really good - we had a selection of magic cookies, fudge brownies and macaroons and all tasted great - coffee was really good as well. Well worth a visit... More

The scones are out of this world!! My favorite is the raspberry scones they are so fresh and moist. Go visit Tracey ask for the scones you won't be disappointed.

Had brunch with friends and all were pleased with the food, decor and service. Rave reviews for the Monte Cristo sandwich from Mr. Fussy,..."better than those I used to get in California." Our quiches (ham and cheese/vegetable) were great and my Hawaiian chicken salad was delicious. PS to Trip Advisor: You have this listed as serving dinner, it is only... More

I love walking downtown Venice and I love sitting sown and enjoying breakfast or lunch at one of the outside cafés when I'm there. This is my favorite place for coffee and something home baked from the class counter. I learned my lesson about waiting to be served tho. I now just get it to go and sit somewhere else... More

I used to work in the neighbourhood and I would get lunch here anytime I could. Their sandwiches and salads were amazing and their desserts were fantastic. There was nothing that I did not love. Very busy and bustling.

The Upper Crust Café is my favorite place for scones, and iced-coffee. The macaroons, crumb coffee cake and lemon wedges are mighty good too! The Upper Crust is a nice place to start the day with the food drink and wonderful wait staff. Looking forward to coming back.

I was at Upper Crust with family recently and sat outside after going inside and being directed outside. It was very warm that day, and with the cars parking right next to where the outside tables are, it was quite toasty. It took a while to be served. We had to go inside to ask for more iced tea and...
