When our grandchildren visit form Boston area, Grandma loves to take them to the Upper Crust for scones and tea. Sometimes they try some other items, Crepes, but the scones are just too fabulous to miss. Eating there is always a pleasure, great service and you are not rushed even "in season" when the snowbirds are visiting. My favorite thing to do while eating there is to order a half dozen scones to bring home with us. Everyone enjoys a second helping the next morning. It is a bit pricey but the quality is worth it.

The staff here is so-so but the baked goods are awesome! I won't eat a scone anywhere else but here. I've been going to Upper Crust since they first opened and, uh, I haven't gotten past the scones (8 or so varieties) and a good, strong cup of coffee :-)

Busy place with the best scones and lattes around! Friendly waitresses, gorgeous pastries. Shabby chic decor...feels like you're in a darling European spot. Classy! A little pricier than other restaurants on the island.

Perfect for Mothers/fathers day!
The atmosphere couldn't be better, the service was great, the scones can't be described beyond delight. Crepes, yes.

If you want a nice classy breakfast on Venice Island, Upper Crust is your spot. Although not the greatest of service, as the ladies are kind of slow, no one is really in a hurry on Venice Island, so it works.

The food is a bit overprices, such as the $3.25 scones (its flour and water and bisquick!) But is a nice place to go for a Sunday family breakfast.

Cute gals will serve you, and keep asking for coffee refills!

Enjoy Downtown Venice after your brekafast! Its well located to walk off your eggs benedict!
