At Upper Crust Bakery, oven masters churn out fresh European-inspired breads and pastries daily without mixing in preservatives or additives, grabbing press attention for their signature challah. Patrons fill breadbaskets with challah or a cranberry-walnut loaf, which rolls out of the oven steaming fresh and as soft as a cloud in a silk bathrobe. Banana-nut teacake and chocolate-marble pound cake accompany pastry cohorts such as chocolate, raisin, or raspberry rugulah, which flakes apart to reveal a gooey center. Finally, bakers top off baskets with two cappuccino-kissed brownies or raspberry linzer bars, stacking them into lean-tos that provide shelter for lost gingerbread men.
Some menu items may contain nuts. Upper Crust Bakery is closed on Mondays.
