After your first visit, you will consider
 Upper Crust a great find. Odds are you will also become a regular.

Look at what people are saying on Yelp or TripAdvisor and you will read nothing but praise for Middleburg’s Upper Crust bakery. Stop by at lunchtime and you may find a line of customers that ends on the front porch. The bakery’s popularity is even more remarkable because advertising is
largely word-of-mouth.

Much like Middleburg, Upper Crust has a small-town feel. They do not accept credit cards, which is almost unheard of these days. In spite of the cash or check policy, nobody complains. The baked goods are some of the best you will find anywhere. Breakfast and lunch fare are equally noteworthy and the staff will treat you like they have known you all their lives. ML
