I've eaten here a few times. The breakfast is good but nothing out of this world. Where this place shines is their baked goods, especially their scones. I absolutely love their blueberry and cranberry/orange scones.

Left the husband home and went to downtown Venice for the farmers' market on a sunny Saturday morning. After walking around, I decided to stop at Upper Crust for a late breakfast. It's sometimes difficult to find a place that is happy to seat a lone diner. No problem here! After looking at the menu, I decided on Eggs Benedict.... More

Great on island walk to breakfast or lunch spot. Lots of good pastry to indulge yourself with . Good service inside or outside. The desert offerings will test your willpower.

Called in this little cafe during a visit to a Car Show held on the car park across the road. Only had a coffee and coke as not hungry. Went back a few days later to visit Venice again and decided to try breakfast, sat on the pavement (sorry sidewalk ;-) ), beautiful morning, had our usual eggs-bacon-ham etc. Couldn't... More

A small and very friendly breakfast and lunch eatery, specializing in a variety of scones. I recommend ordering the egg or waffle dishes for breakfast and then taking home a few scones for later in the day.

I went with 3 friends for lunch. The waitress was friendly and took our drink order immediately. We all ordered salads- which were all delicious. I had the Chopped Cobb Salad- loaded with Blue cheese veggies, hard boiled egg and bacon! Very crunchy with fabulous Balsamic dressing! I suggest that you get there before Noon, or you'll likely have to... More

We had lunch with friends at the Upper Crust and thoroughly enjoyed a non-rushed lunch. Our waiter was excellent, checking back with us often. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Oh, and save room for dessert - a number of wonderful tasty ones.

Every time I visit Venice I make the Upper Crust a must for breakfast. Their regular breakfast fare (eggs, omelettes, home fries, pancakes, Belgian waffles) are all very good, but I'm a sucker for their scones. They have at least 8 different kinds. I had the orange cranberry. My sister in law had the blueberry. It was full of blueberries... More

Locals recommended the little cafe Upper crust in downtown Venice. All we wanted coffee which was good, with free refills. The food looked very good but we had just had a picnic. The young lady who served us was very attentive. You could sit inside or out.The locals said that the scones were good too!
