“Amazing breakfast - Best in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I visited Upper Crust with my Mother In Law for the first time and LOVED it. Everything is so fresh, amazing and homemade. We started with blueberry scones with sweet cream which were delicious, then I ordered the quiche of the day which was fantastic. They have cute, quaint decor which is perfect for a girls' outing. We ordered tea to share in old fashioned tea kettles which were so cute. I can't wait to go back!

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We discovered this place 5 years ago when we lived in Gainesville and since then we have made our way back there several times when "in the area". We are always willing to drive extra miles to make it fit in our travels. I had the Tuscan soup, it was absolutely delicious, creamy and flavorful (sausage, bacon, potato) and grilled cheese sandwich, not your average grill cheese. My husband had the crab cake sandwich and was very happy with it. We then had our favorites, the strawberry shortcake and he had a cinnamon roll. We left happy with the meal, feeling lucky for that day we found that place just wondering around trying to find a nice place for breakfast and thinking when it will be "on the way" again. Can't wait to go back!

“Scones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Don't miss the scones at Upper Crust. Great breakfasts, too. Omelets are amazing, but even if you just pop in to get a scone it's worth it.

“Magic Bar=Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great pastries. The magic bar is really good! Espresso wasn't great according to my husband, but he is super picky. Overall, very charming place.
