My husband likes to stop here on the way to the beach and orders a couple scones with Devonshire cream and coffee to go. Always a special treat. We've tried all their scones since they sell out quickly and have enjoyed every kind !
We go for breakfast and lunch when the tourists aren't in town.

We are snowbirds, who live in Venice all winter. We rave about the scones to everyone we know-here and up north. We dream about the scones all summer and try to find replacements up north. We flew down for a couple weeks, the other day and my husband went down to Upper Crust early Thursday to pick up a couple of blueberry scones. When he got there, he was told there were only a couple of cinnamon and raspberry, and the blueberry scones would be out in 1/2 hour. He said Ok, went back to the car, walked the street, came back in, after a half hour, was told a few more minutes. went back to read the real estate listings in the window next door, walked back--saw some fresh scones in the window, came in and asked for the 2 blueberry scones. The same girl said "oh, I only had 4 blueberry scones and just sold them to that lady that just left." WHAT??? So he bought raspberry ones but was really upset. What kind of customer service is this? And why was there only 4 blueberry scones???? It's really left a bad taste in our mouths--we are extremely disappointed in this treatment.

Had Sunday brunch recently on a girls weekend to Venice. Seemed to be the only place open since tourist season is over and the town is on the quiet side. Luckily, Upper Crust turned out to be a gem! Everything we ordered was superb. Don't miss the banana bread french toast or the warm scones with Devonshire creme! Decor was adorble with antique mirrors on the walls and chandeliers hanging all around. Place is quiet so don't expect bottomless mimosas or a loud crowd. Waitstaff was very welcoming and friendly. Will totally be back any time I'm in Venice!

You have to try the banana pancakes! They are the most delicious, moist and flavorful pancakes ever!! I always opt for the plain pancakes, but decided to give them a try. They will melt in your mouth. You will not be disappointed with any of their homemade pastries.
