Rise seems to be taking the market by storm. And while I’ve never had anything bad at Rise, don’t believe the hype that says they invented either biscuits or doughnuts. Definitely not bad, but a bit pricey. If you think a biscuit, a doughnut, and...More

I know most people come here for the donuts, which are indeed tasty, but their bacon egg and cheese biscuits are heaven.

So this sound odd, but we love the simple glazed donuts. They are by far the best item on their menu. They are light, not too sweet and a hint of citrus. The donut with sprinkles are very good as well. The more complex donuts...More

Always stop here when in Chapel Hill for a biscuit and a donut. Both are yummy. This is a quick serve type place with limited inside seating. Well worth a trip. Glad to see they’re expanding to many other locations. Yummy.

Stopped in for a coffee and an apple fritter. Fritter was $3.00. I found it to be too greasy. I've had much better fritters. The coffee was fresh and robust. Small place, order at a counter. Few stools against a wall inside, tables on the...More

Lots of fun and interesting flavors to try from if you're bold, but plenty of classics as well! Always a hit.

I wish I could give this 6 stars. This was, hands down, the best chicken biscuit of my life. The chicken was moist and seasoned to perfection. It came with plenty of "free" add-ons (I just chose honey), as well as small add-ons (I added...More
