Had to go back, not once...but twice!

Found them on TripAdvisor, and so glad we did! Had lunch there there separate times. And guys - don't let the tea-room look fool you - they have some great hearty fare as well.

The breakfast is so good here people wait outside for a table. Do not miss the Devonshire Cream and Scone! You can even have it with strawberries! It is a must. The coffee is great and you can enjoy breakfast and lunch.

The title should say it all. We did a large breakfast one day and coffee and pastries another. The scones are out of this world, not dry like some scones can be. The pecan sweet roll was also a tasty treat. We got that one to go and had dessert. It is vacation after all!

This bakery has been downtown Venice for years now and these gals that run it make thee best homemade baked goods. Absolutely everything that I have tried there is amazing. Just looking into their display case is a mouth watering experience. Everything tastes so fresh. Go indulge!!

We were visiting family in Venice, they wanted to take us to breakfast. The Upper Crust was wonderful. Many desserts to choose from. The french toast was amazing! When we come back to Venice, we will be sure to come back to Upper Crust. Our service was great as well.

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
