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

Walked about a mile daily to get their coffee when we were in town. Breakfast sandwich was huge and delicious- as was their cookies and turnovers.

While visiting friends in Venice FL, we had breakfast at Upper Crust. Several of our party had the scones which received raves. I had a waffle which was outstanding. Mimosas were a great addition also. The atmosphere is perfect for a perfect little beach town like Venice. The icing on the cake has to be the service which is friendly,... More

The array of baked goods in the window only tell part of Upper Crust's story. It is a popular place for breakfast and lunch with a very large menu. Staff are pleasant and orders appear very quickly but the sheer range of offerings leads to a slight 'production line' feel to the food.

Have eaten here twice and have been pleased both times. This time had the Triple Salad, Chicken, Tuna and Egg. Best was the Hawaiian Chicken Salad was the best. Great place to sit outside and watch people walk Venice's Main Street. Came back the next morning and picked up fantastic scones for breakfast.

Cute cafe on Venice Ave. we stopped by for a quick lunch. I had a grilled chicken wrap with fresh fruit and my husband had a turkey sandwich with chips. The food and service were both very good. The only downside was we didn't save room for dessert. The bakery items looked delicious.

Had typical egg breakfast - fried eggs with bacon and a ham and cheese omelette. Both came with small serving of fresh fruit and choice of bread. We chose English muffins which were very soft and fresh. We had coffee to drink which was very good. Had a couple scones from here earlier in the month and they were very... More

Right in the heart of downtown Venice and with a flare of distinction this is a wonderful little spot. Dine outside with your favorite pet, or inside surrounded by crystal chandeliers and teapots! Excellent tea room that serves up some very scrumptious fare. Be sure to try the scones, and the front entry bakery case displays the offerings you can... More
