When the moon first tasted the thin buttery layers of a croissant, it was so inspired that it changed from a quadrangle into a slivery crescent. Today's Groupon makes like the moon with $15 worth of pastries, desserts, and espressos at Upper Crust Bakery for $7. Tell your tired morning toes that there's a reason to get out of bed and the reason both smells and tastes delicious.
Upper Crust Bakery doesn't bore its customers with the flim-flam of machine-made, plastic-packaged sweet treats. The bakery relies on the mixing and folding power of real human hands to pound love into every pastry that passes through the oven. Only fresh quality ingredients make up the genetics of an Upper Crust brioche, a not-so-dormant chocolate volcano cake, fruit tarts, and a newly born loaf of Black Forest bread. Preservatives, trans-fats, and processed sweeteners don't bother taking their shoes off at the bakery door because they're not invited in the first place. Start your day on a premium foot with a kick from an espresso ($1.75-$3.75) and a scone, Danish, or cinnamon roll ($1.75-$3) ripe for the dunking.
Those who seek a supplemented bread experience will enjoy any of Upper Crust's deli sandwiches, such as the Spring veggie with hummus and a classic ham and swiss. Or feel the joy of bringing home an oven-fresh challah (served on Fridays), whole wheat, or baguette (served daily) for grilling and cheesing (all breads $3 to $4.50). Return to the days when bakery items exuded handcrafted affection and curl up with an old read, like My Feet Are Made of Applesauce, and the pleasing comfort of a well-treated belly.
