One of Austin’s most well known bakeries, the Upper Crust, certainly lives up to its fame. Don’t be fooled by simple decor of this European style bakery located on the corner of Burnet and 45th st. Their food is anything but plain; just sample some of their decadent cheesecake or savory coconut cream pie. Don’t have a sweet tooth? They also serve delectable lunch fare; try an avocado sandwich with some soup, a chicken salad, or the classic turkey croissant. Meander along the seemingly endless display cases of almost every type of treat and pastry you can imagine.

Unlike some bakeries who order their food from outside and repackage the contents, everything is fresh and homemade daily at the Upper Crust. Not only do their baked goods taste delightful, but their presentation is always impeccable and show worthy. Whether stopping by to have lunch with a friend or picking up treats for a party, you won’t be disappointed with this little Austin gem.
