It all started in 1978 when Raul Quintero moved his family from Pompano Beach to Lake Worth, Florida with a dream for a future. He bought an old cake shop located on Dixie Highway and there it all began.
After many years of hard work and determination Raul passed the reins over to his son, Rudy, who has been baking pies ever since.Some would ask, “How does a bakery that ONLY makes pies last for so long?”
The answer is consistency. Rudy always uses quality ingredients, never anything canned. Our pies are 9 inch deep dish and have the flakiest crusts you will ever taste.After many years of making quality pies and distributing them throughout other retail outlets as well as the shop on Dixie Hwy, the Upper Crust is now a Palm Beach County icon. Mention the name The Upper Crust to anyone and you will surely hear, “Oh they have the best pies!”, or “I love their pies!”, or even “They make pies better than my grandmother!”
The Upper Crust Key Lime Pie was voted the Best in Palm Beach County by the readers of the Palm Beach Post. We have also been voted a winner for having the best pies in the “Best of Boca & Beyond ” edition of Boca Raton Magazine. We’ve been mentioned in papers such as the Wall Street Journal, The Palm Beach Post, and Sun Sentinel additionally have been featured in many local news stories on WPTV Channel 5 and WPBF Channel 25.
