Not only are the doughnuts amazing, but the biscuits will make you reassess your entire biscuit grading system, if you happen to have such a thing! This doesn't even take into account that they have a "Wisconsin" biscuit, so basically, you simply can't lose!

We had breakfast biscuits which were perfect southern egg and sausage biscuits. And we had some donuts. Specifically, apple fritter, lemon classic, banana foster, carrot cake and the surprise deliciousness of the pineapple basil with pistachios on top. SUPER nice staff and great visit. Thanks!

We visited Rise for the first time and the line was out the door. A small space, and it sounded like a LOT of the customers were frequent repeat visitors. They have a lot of options, including those for vegetarians like my husband and I....More
