They have the biggest, best tasting scones I have ever had! The service is always great and so is the food!

We were visiting Venice and looking for a place to have a good coffee. We stopped at this bakery and saw they were quite busy. We explained that we just wanted a coffee with a scone, and they offered us a table. The latte and scones were HUGE, and also were delicious. The clotted cream was decadent. As large as... More

Met some family here for lunch. The entrance of the cafe is a congested bottleneck with people waiting to be seated and others purchasing desserts to go. They offer a good selection of lunch items. The food was average; we tried some desserts that were all very sweet with large portions. We tried what the server called scones from a... More

Called in on our way through with the family - looking for somewhere to have some morning coffee and some cakes. Inside is a "shabby chic" kind of affair. Cakes were really good - we had a selection of magic cookies, fudge brownies and macaroons and all tasted great - coffee was really good as well. Well worth a visit... More

Had brunch with friends and all were pleased with the food, decor and service. Rave reviews for the Monte Cristo sandwich from Mr. Fussy,..."better than those I used to get in California." Our quiches (ham and cheese/vegetable) were great and my Hawaiian chicken salad was delicious. PS to Trip Advisor: You have this listed as serving dinner, it is only... More

I love walking downtown Venice and I love sitting sown and enjoying breakfast or lunch at one of the outside cafés when I'm there. This is my favorite place for coffee and something home baked from the class counter. I learned my lesson about waiting to be served tho. I now just get it to go and sit somewhere else... More

I used to work in the neighbourhood and I would get lunch here anytime I could. Their sandwiches and salads were amazing and their desserts were fantastic. There was nothing that I did not love. Very busy and bustling.

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.
