“Vanilla Bourbon Scone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Great bakery with amazing rye bread. Best thing has to be the vanilla bourbon scones with frosting. Also occassionally have wine tastings.

“Just Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

My wife and I love food. We moved away from Gainesville about a year ago, and this is really the one place we miss above all else. We spent a couple of amazing weeks in Paris and even though we've traveled around the U.S. a little bit, we've never found a French bakery better than this one. Everything is amazing, from the cookies and croissants to the French roses. I can't say enough about this place.

Oh, and this is a real bakery, so what they have in stock will vary depending on when you go there. If you always want the exact same selection, try the candy bar aisle of a gas station :)

“Phony French”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

There must be something about people in Gainesville that makes them rate things on price, not value. Upper Crust, which has been around for a long time, is not a good French pastry shop. In fact, it is not very French. The staff were not familiar with the French names of various of their items for sale, and did not know much about French pastry in general. Some of the items are tasty (we have tried a wide range over the years), but all pastries and other sweets are grotesquely over-sized. And some are just bland and without character. Perhaps this is the result of Gainesville being a college town, full of starving students, but the sheer size of some of the sweets and savories is off-putting. Who needs a croissant the size of a dinner plate? They lose a star because of this, and another because of the pretentiousness of the entire approach. They have some good cheese, but a better selection can be found down the street at Dorn's liquor store, and an even better selection downtown at Wine and Cheese.

“Delectable goodies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

We had a hard time choosing from the lovely assortment of quality pastries and breads. The cream puffs were wonderful! We look forward to going back whenever we are in the area.
