“We love Upper Crust's many salads or sandwiches for lunch and quiche and baked goods for breakfast. Need a cake last minute? Drive downtown and pick one up - you can't go wrong with any cake in their case! ”

“You can't go wrong downtown with Tres Hombres' shrimp tacos or anything else on the menu. If there's a wait, ask to sit at the taco bar. The children's park is across the street if you need to entertain little one's while waiting.”
