Great friendly and welcoming staff. The food is outstanding. If you like banana bread try the banana bread french toast. You will love it. I put just butter on mine and it's unbelievable. My husband loves the blueberry pancakes. The scones are by far the...More

The quiche is great and so are the pastries. And have a latte too! Beautiful, whimsical artwork decorates the intimate spot. Try it!

Recommended by a local, Upper Crust serves the best scones I've ever tasted. Full breakfast was also Molto Bene!

Fresh scones daily plus a nice menu. The scones are to our liking because they are crisp/crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Favorite is the cinninmun. Try it with the cloted cream. Delicious!

I had the Eggs Benedict. I've had this dish in other restaurants, but this was by far the best. Everything was very fresh. The hollandaise was excellent. The portion included a side of fresh fruit and was filling. Service was great - never had to...More

Didn't see any gluten free but it is a very large menu, so a phone call to them could be worthwhile.

Absolutely! The entry has a solid slope from sidewalk to inside the cafe with ample room inside around each table to accommodate a wheelchair. Or you can dine out front on the sidewalk where there are 4 or 5 tables.
