I've been getting treats here since I was a teen, and my best friend worked here..it's only improved with age! The flourless chocolate torte an coconut lemon bars are to die for, seriously. . Go, and go often!

One of my favorites! Not only is Upper Crust the only gourmet pastry business in town, but it's a stand alone. Any business that attempted to open a comparative business, would have to close it's doors, because they would not be able to complete. Upper Crust has been in business in Chico for as long as I can remember. Sit... More

The bakery goods and food at Upper Crust are fabulous. Everything is beautifully presented. The gluten free alternatives are some of the best in town, and the owner was one of the first to offer that choice. I have not been in a long time because of health issues, and because parking and walking downtown is not disabled friendly. I... More

Wonderful, giant birthday cakes. Love the Whipped Cream Strawberry and Black Forest the best! Croissants (plain and chocolate) are amazing, too.

My favorite place to grab something in the glass case, whether it's quiche or pastry like, along with my favorite chai, tea, or other beverage. Great atmosphere, art gallery displays, and some of the best cakes for special occasions.

The bakery items are simply delicious. Every single one I've tried is eye-rollingly yummy. For family dinners I always pick up,dessert here because mine are just not as good nor will they ever be. Pre-order AND pre-pay to,avoid long lines and disappointment on the holidays.

a semi-fast food self-service option to the pedestrian options available downtown. Wonderfully creative baked goods (pies, cakes, cookies), and their salads are meals in themselves. But a filling lunch can be had with just a bowl of soup or black bean chili with sour cream and pesto with corn muffin--filling, easy, and inexpensive. Its order at the counter and seat... More

A long time Chico favorite - soups, coffees, teas, and goodies. Try the mini carrot cakes and any of the cookies. Their art shows local art.

My friend and I were looking to satisfy our sugar cravings after a tour at Bidwell Mansion and just happened upon this place. We felt like we struck gold!! We walked through the front doors and knew immediately we were going to have a problem...How do you choose what to get? Everything looked so decadent and delicious. And, it's not... More
