First time in Venice. We shared a breakfast bowl. It was excellent and just the right amount for us. Great coffee. Beautiful tea pot and cup. And the blueberry scone was warm out of the oven, with Devonshire cream it was to die for.

This small restaurant/café, which serves lunch as well, is a little gem, decorated in a mix of country living/Alice in Wonderland/Versailles. We were looking for a place to have brunch, and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the presentation was a pleasure to the eyes. Don't visit Venice without stopping at this place!

This a very cute place with friendly service. But the food leaves something to be desired. The crab cakes Benedict were only "ok." The English muffin was really hard to cut and chewy and the eggs were over cooked. The chocolate chip pancakes were ok but not anymore impressive than any other. The bacon...well, bacon is great. It's hard to... More

This place is a real bakery with cafe meals. The bakery goods are homemade, giant and delicious. They are take away or sit down. The cafe fare is just what you hope it would be, light and pretty, room for dessert. Great tea and coffee. My favorite cake sells out early.

So glad that we found this wonderful eatery. The service from Linda was excellent as were our chai tea lattes and cappuccino. Our sandwiches were delicious and the scones with Devonshire cream outstanding. We will be back.

We stumbled upon this cafe by chance. Being English we are used to small tearooms with delicious cakes, we were transported home in this fantastic eatery. Great Cream teas, fantastic service. It's a long way from home but next time we are here we will definitely call in.

After going to the chalk festival happened to drop in at Upper Crust Bakery, so glad we did. First we shared the two fish tacos which were good sized and very tasty. Grilled Mahi Mahi with slaw and mango salsa in a warm slightly crusted tortilla. Then we ordered a slice of coconut cake to share. Largest slice of cake... More

My MIL and I had lunch at upper crust and it was perfect. I ordered the spinach salad and a chai tea latte. My drink was WONDERFUL. 10x better than Starbucks. ;) and the croissant that came with my salad was fresh, buttery and flaky- perfect. Our service was superb- our waitress was very attentive. I enjoyed the overall atmosphere... More
