Delicious breakfast place!

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!

We came here for dinner after not being here for a year. The daily specials are always interesting. We ordered a cup of beef barley soup which was hearty and tasty. We also ordered the chicken enchilada which was served atop of a bed of lettuce and garnished with candied almonds, fresh tropical fruit pieces & a light dressing. This... More

My friends and I waited in line for seating, but when we got up by the hostess we discovered people were putting their names down before getting in line. Being new to the area....how were we to know, thus many people in line behind us were seated before us. Not a good system and we were very aggravated.. The lunch... More

Love the scones and lemon bars!! Hear they have awesome coconut cake. Stop in for a coffee and sweet. Not many seats so go early or you could have a wait. Take away is a good option. Be aware that they close early..3pm....

We have never sit down and eaten inside because it is always too busy and the lines are very long. We like to stop in and get their scones. Best since Ireland. They generally have four different types along with many other types of baked goods and pastries.

Excellent bakery and a really nice place to have brunch or lunch. You can eat in or outside. I also like their desserts...squares, pies, cakes etc. All very good with excellent service. The only problem is that it is very popular so sometimes there is a wait for a table, and no real place to wait.

Downtown Venice is a delightful and very pretty eating and shopping area in coastal Florida. The Upper Crust is an absolutely perfect spot to have breakfast or lunch. I had a delicious pastry and my friend had a banana French toast meal. Both were delicious. The atmosphere is charming, the service was great, the menu varied, the prices reasonable.
