Have a bagel and coffee with friends while your kids play in our safe and fun children's area

Located in Downtown Darien, Upper Crust Bakery and Cafe (UCBC) has been a local favorite since it opened in 1997. UCBC serves breakfast and lunch daily with a full menu including bagels and muffins, specialty sandwiches and salads, and a wide selection of beverages – from coffee and hot chocolate to juices, sodas and iced tea products. UCBC bagels are so good, that they have earned “Best of the Gold Coast” ever since the award was created in 2004.

Upper Crust always uses the freshest ingredients, offering a variety of choices, and providing customers with a clean and pleasing environment along with friendly and courteous service. The shop serves the needs of individuals, families and area businesses for walk-in (and eat-in) business as well as special breakfast and lunch platters that are available for delivery.

Upper Crust also believes that being a local business, it is important to give back. Therefore, the store has been a strong supporter of the Darien community – from sponsoring Pop Warner and Little League teams to donating food to area schools, organizations and fundraisers. A walk through UCBC and anyone can see the dozens of thank-you notes and family photos that line the walls.

Upper Crust Bakery and Cafe is open seven days a week, from 6:30-4:00 Monday-Sunday. Located at 980 Post Road, customers can park right on the Post Road or behind the store in the public lot. For more information, call (203) 655-7566.
