A few words from Doug Lawellin and Steve Rohlin, the owners of The Upper Crust ...

We are proud to announce that The Upper Crust, located across the street from the Gardens on El Paseo, just celebrated its 30th anniversary and we really want to thank all of you, our loyal customers! We couldn't be prouder that you continue to enjoy our selection of special and private label gourmet foods and really appreciate that you think of The Upper Crust first when you need a hostess gift or something very special for a wedding, birthday or anniversary gift.

We intend to carry on the tradition of this wonderful store by introducing new products such as Match pewter from Italy, the Viking cutlery and cookware lines and the original Caplan’s Fresh and Light dressings under the Upper Crust private label. These dressings have been popular for over 30 years but have never been available in the Coachella Valley. The citrose mustard vinaigrette, ranch, thousand island, sesame ginger and blue cheese offerings are simply fabulous!

We invite you to drop in, meet our personable and knowledgable staff, browse through our many fine departments and sample some of our gourmet foods at the sample bar.

You, our customers, are our most important asset and we look forward to providing you with the highest quality and most unique products, and the best customer service available anywhere.

Our new web store will always be open, every day, all year! You can shop online to find the products and gourmet foods you desire. Even during our summer close, when we search out new products to offer and freshen up our retail store, online orders will be filled daily. We even offer store pickup as an option during summer close. If you have any questions we welcome you to call or drop by.
