The restaurant has been one of our gems, we have been going there for years about every 4-6 weeks, well not anymore! Not sure what has happened? New owners? Cheaper ingredients? New chef? My favorite meal was replaced with rubber chicken, it's was either frozen, microwaved or both. The sauce not creamy, just very watery and worst of all this... More

Great restaurant that is obviously popular based on the size of the restaurant - and the fact that at lunch, every table was occupied! Once I enjoyed their "quiche special of the day" I understood why. Great food, great service, great menu. Food was served quickly and hot, and yet never felt rushed in any way. Our waitress was excellent,... More

Upper Crust are great if you're looking for cozy atmosphere and some comfort food staples. They've got a great selection for vegetarians and I've always really enjoyed the rainbow trout. Also a nice quiet spot for a hot beverage and a book. Lots of University crowd there, all the charms of a lot of other cafes and restaurants in the... More

Always lunch here when in the area, hasn't disappointed yet. Have to try dinner sometime. Service occasionally feels a bit scattered, but not a big deal. Reasonable prices for excellent meals. Try it!

We had lunch and dinner catered through them. Portion sizes were great, the food was delicious and everything came as ordered. I would definitely use them again!

Right off the bat, I must say out of all the times I've eaten at the upper crust I've always been super pleased with the food. This time around the whole atmosphere was off. The waitress didn't introduce herself, didn't ask if we wanted anything other than water to drink and made a few comments that were not appropriate to... More

We have been here twice now on the weekends for brunch. Always very fresh and tasty food. Love the omelette. Service was better the second time. It is always busy but they always seem to have tables available and there is always street parking nearby. So its very convenient not having to make a reservation. Will continue going back!

Located near the U of A, this busy, casual restaurant has been dishing out well-prepared food for over 30 years. The pan-fried chicken with rice, carrot, red pepper and mushrooms (15.25) did not disappoint. Ditto the side salad (3.25) and lemon meringue pie (7.75). Go early, street parking is limited.
