Right off the bat, I must say out of all the times I've eaten at the upper crust I've always been super pleased with the food. This time around the whole atmosphere was off. The waitress didn't introduce herself, didn't ask if we wanted anything other than water to drink and made a few comments that were not appropriate to... More

We have been here twice now on the weekends for brunch. Always very fresh and tasty food. Love the omelette. Service was better the second time. It is always busy but they always seem to have tables available and there is always street parking nearby. So its very convenient not having to make a reservation. Will continue going back!

I work at the U of A very close by and we have Upper Crust cater all of our lunches and other function. The are efficient, prompt and the food is always fresh and delicious. The sandwiches are excellent (esp the shrimp & egg), desserts to dream about. I haven't been in their restaurant but do want to go. I've... More

Located near the U of A, this busy, casual restaurant has been dishing out well-prepared food for over 30 years. The pan-fried chicken with rice, carrot, red pepper and mushrooms (15.25) did not disappoint. Ditto the side salad (3.25) and lemon meringue pie (7.75). Go early, street parking is limited.

I have dined at Upper Crust Cafe three times in the past six months. My May visit and September visit were very nice - good service and tasty food. However, my December visit was very disappointing. Service was inconsistent. Our server wanted to take our order while my guest was in the washroom and hadn't even looked at the menu... More

This is a really nice restaurant it's been around for a number of years and has always maintained its steady standard of good food and service. The menu has a very nice balance with a good emphasis on vegetarian which is my choice. I tried the Somosa with salsa. The dish was good however the inside of the somosa was... More

I love my steaks, however, I don't think that I should have to spend the Earth to get a nicely prepared cut of meat. Furthermore, I am fed up with restaurants that know how to charge but only produce food that is poor in quality and poor in service. These are the restaurants that put on airs and pretension, but...

This place has been around for decades. I was recently reintroduced to it when a friend mentioned having to pick up a few items. I went for brunch and it was excellent. I had the traditional eggs Benedict and my sister had the Florentine Benedict. We traded one of each and both were outstanding. The cafe is quite large and... More

This Garneau neighbourhood favorite is my stand-by for seasonal, well prepared, and home-style meals. Their soups alone would make any trip worthwhile! Whether for lunch or dinner, the Upper Crust will not disappoint: I have yet to visit when there weren't 4 or 5 delicious options on the menu, giving me a terribly hard decision! They prepare lamb beautifully, their... More
