The Upper Crust Cakery was a bakery and coffeehouse run as a joint venture by Glen Edith Coffee Roasters and the former Upper Crust. It was located in the Neighborhood of the Arts (behind 34 Elton Street) and serves cookies, cupcakes, custom and specialty cakes, and Glen Edith coffee.
In December 2016 they announced they were officially closed via the following Facebook post:
"Because of the partnership failure I experienced this past May, and the consequential financial losses incurred, I have been forced to make the difficult decision to close the bakery permanently. It has been such a privilege to work with each of your families, to celebrate all kinds of important milestones during the last 15 years. We have experienced such tremendous support from the Rochester community, especially beginning from our deep roots in Penfield, something I will always treasure and remember fondly. It's been a great ride, and I thank you for your part in helping Upper Crust to thrive and succeed. I will truly miss making you and the kids smile, but if I ever reopen some day, I know you'll be waiting." - Julie McOrmond, Owner
"Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning."
EDIT: As difficult as this decision was for me, it was not made lightly or hastily, and in spite of feeling like I have "lost" everything, I actually still HAVE "everything", because of the great God I trust with my life and my future. The bakery was always His, and if its time is over, then there is a greater purpose. From one of my life psalms (#42): "Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God." For those of you trudging through your own dark night, you are not alone, and there is Hope.
Glen Edith still occupies the space.
