Perfect!!! Our breakfast was unbelievably delicious! The Lemon Poppyseed scones are amazing. Staff was very friendly, fast and helpful. On a side note...it was also very easy to park! Highly recommend! If I could give it a five star I would!!!

Just stopped in with my wife and daughter for a spot of tea and something from the bakery. Everything in the refrigerator case looked scrumptious. We chose a variety of scones and all were delicious accompanied by cups of hot tea served in fine china--a nice touch! Service was attentive and polite.

This is absolutely the best scone you will ever devour! Baked from scratch daily and a wide variety to choose from. Their breakfast and lunch menu is extensive and well priced. Stop by soon for a meal or a scone.

If you like scones - you will LOVE the scones at the Upper Crust Cafe & Bakery. They are absolutely the best ever especially with the Devonshire cream. It doesn't matter what variety of scones you get - they are all great!!

Parking not always easy, but lunch was excellent, service outstanding. Looks like a little bakery from outside but small dining room serves breakfast and lunch on a surprising menu. Make it a point to stop in at least once every trip down. Even if not ready for a meal, they have the best scones, coconut cake and variety of coffee... More

We split a delicious scone and followed it with Benedict and a quiche! Yummy! The coffees and lattes are good, too. We come here every time we're in Venice. Can't wait to come back!

We were shopping in Venice, Florida and stopped in for tea and scones. Oh my! I'm so glad I didn't eat breakfast that morning because this scone with cream was plenty. I had the blackberry scone which I highly recommend. I loved that they bring you out tea in a teapot. It was by far the best scone I've ever... More

Charming inside seating, sidewalk seating outside. Fast, attentive service. Nice breakfast options. Blueberry pancakes were wonderful. Bakery case was popular with people lined up out the door for their morning treats. Cherry turnovers were flaky, with a generous filling.

This place has been downtown Venice for years and they have the nicest staff. All of their food is prepared fresh in the back room and they don't cheat on the ingredients used. Their bakery draws you in and the brownies are the best around. Also, the coconut macaroons melt in your mouth. Grab a scone or two because they... More
