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.

We go to upper crust about once a week. The food, atmosphere and staff are exceptional. Visitors always look forward to a visit here for breakfast or brunch.

Wonderful scones, wonderful and cute environment. Great place to go and relax for the afternoon. I love the Hawaiian chicken crescents.

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...

I ate breakfast there this morning. I have been to this place several other times over several years but do not live in Venice. I tried a different type item, crab cakes benedict. Actually it was pretty good. The crab cakes were good, the eggs were cooked nicely, and I enjoyed the frest fruit side. My coffee cup was kept... More

A visiting friend and I dined in on a Friday afternoon and we both had the caramelized onion flatbread which was very tasty and quite a large portion for an appetizer. The restaurant is quaint and surrounded with tidbits of old English atmosphere. The wait staff was very attentive and did not rush our meal. I asked them when they... More

My friend and I had been there recently for lunch, she ordered the superb pineapple chicken and I had the egg salad sandwich. Delicious! To end the meal I ordered the strawberry shortcake- OMG! it was built for... More

We just went this morning and not only was the service not the best, the food was disappointing. I expected better based on the reviews but was down on my luck because the mushrooms in the omelet were bad, the crab cake Benedict was bland. Irritated since I am on vacation and wanted a yummy breakfast. Oh well, I'll Never... More

I have really tried to like this place but time after time I have been disappointed by the poor service, the poor attitude of the servers, and the scones, which are dry and tasteless. Given the high price of the items, one should expect better. The setting is lovely, and the bakery items look oh, so good but this place... More
