we ofter go here for coffee and lumber jack cake. The cake is scummy and we usually share as it's so filling. Queues of people for the specialty bread. Lovely place for coffee for us at the weekend.

One review described Uprising as 'slow', and often that is the case, particularly for a simple coffee. However the quality of the bread and pastries, the innovative food offering does in some way, far outweigh it's shortcomings. Uprising is worth it, just have a coffee...More
