The food is displayed well. Service excellent. Dessert, sandwich, salad, soup, quiche. Vegetarian option as well as meat. Gluten-free option some days. At lunch, many college students studying while they eat. Pictures (by local artists) on the walls change frequently. Very clean. Some outside tables as well as inside ones. Place your order at the counter and it's delivered to... More

The made-to-order lunch sandwiches are much better than those in the deli case, but if you get there past the made-to-order time the pre-made sandwiches will do in a pinch. Except for the stale baby lettuce that they put in those sandwiches. I think they do not realize the very short freshness timeframe of those lettuce leaves. I'd recommend that... More

Visiting Chico over night, staying in a downtown hotel, and, hoping for an early morning morning latte and treat - here is nirvana!!! Lattes are excellent, baked good s are phenomenol! If I were a resident, I'd need an intervention. Looking around, all I saw were locals, that says all I needed. Prices were very reasonable.

Voted the best bakery in Chico for more years than you can count, you can't not go here!! I love their pastries and the chili and fresh soups are amazing. This is the place to order your cake or pie for a special occasion too. My favorites are the tuxedo and carrot cakes. Sinful and perfect every time!! They have... More

This is one of my all-time favorite spots to grab a delicious lunch (soups, sandwiches, quiche, salads) and a cup of coffee. Also a fantastic bakery, by the way. A good place to meet with friends, or sit alone reading a book. Centrally located in the heart of Chico's vibrant downtown, and just two blocks from the campus of Chico... More

I've been getting treats here since I was a teen, and my best friend worked here..it's only improved with age! The flourless chocolate torte an coconut lemon bars are to die for, seriously. . Go, and go often!

One of my favorites! Not only is Upper Crust the only gourmet pastry business in town, but it's a stand alone. Any business that attempted to open a comparative business, would have to close it's doors, because they would not be able to complete. Upper Crust has been in business in Chico for as long as I can remember. Sit... More

The bakery goods and food at Upper Crust are fabulous. Everything is beautifully presented. The gluten free alternatives are some of the best in town, and the owner was one of the first to offer that choice. I have not been in a long time because of health issues, and because parking and walking downtown is not disabled friendly. I... More
