We've enjoyed several lunches at the Upper Crust. The vegetable quiche is delicious, although the portion could be a bit larger. The scones with Devonshire cream are to die for! Why only 4 stars? The quiche (other dishes as well) are accompanied by fruit. Just a handful of pieces of fruit. Frankly, it's an insult at these prices. When we... More

Stopped here for lunce but almost passed it by because the sidewalk tables that were unoccupied were all covered with dirty dishes. Spoke to the person inside and she sent someone out to bus a table for us. His attitude was that he was doing us a favor not his job. On the plus side the Cobb Salad and Bacon,... More

Our local friend took us there for lunch. We might have walked past the unassuming front. I ordered my go to test meal, a Reuben sandwich. It was excellent, with home made chips on the side. All of our choices were excellent. Plus our server quickly recognized our table, had our drinks to us quickly and was timely with the... More

Get there before they open at 8am and get in line, that's how popular the pastries and scones are here. I really like the Cinnamon Toffee scones. The Crumb Cake is great and the Almond Croissants are ridiculously good. Don't leave Venice without a stop here!

We love the scones and were disappointed that this visit they were out and there was a 30 minute wait. So we had to pass. The croissants are perfectly cooked, always fresh, and delicious. Also love their muffins and other pastries. Staff was not overly friendly. Did not offer napkins with to-go items.

The place is decorated and looks clean. They seem to offer a good variety of lunch options. I ordered a crab cake sandwich which was decent. My wife ordered a Greek salad which nothing special. I would given one more star if it wasn't for the questionable food service. My mother-in-law ordered a vegetable quesadilla as she is a strict... More
