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.

Shopping on Venice Avenue and we had to stop at this cafe and bakery when we saw the beautiful scones in their window. They were delicious! We tried a few different kinds and all were great - and were served with Devonshire cream. Also had coffee and tea. The tea was served in a pretty little teapot. We ate at... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch and it was delicious. They were busy but a table soon became available. There seemed to be some mix-up in the outside tables as people were seating themselves and then the waitress was also trying to take people out there. Service at table was fast and efficient. I had egg salad on a... More

I mostly go for the fresh scones they make daily, but the other bakery items i have tried were also delicious. Good breakfast too. They have a few outside tables which fill up fast during breakfast time.
