We stopped here after lunch for some sweet treats and they didn't disappoint!! Cookies, cakes, muffins, focaccia, salads, smoothies, and the list goes on. Staff will as friendly and accommodating. I wanted to give the highest rating, but for some reason, my phone wouldn't allow me to select it. This happened with several reviews.

From a tourists's perspective, this is more of a specialty shop specializing in artisanal breads and pastries with a cooler of some nice-looking take-out lunches & salads. There's not really much in the way of seating, though there is a table (maybe two) available for use. The breads, brownies, pastries - everything, really - is truly exceptional and I highly... More

Much more than a bakery. They offer sandwiches, soups , salads and even casseroles that you can take home to cook for dinner. The best cinnamon rolls you'll ever eat, plus awesome cookies, pastries, muffins and wonderful breads.

For great pastries and coffee this is place to go in Martinsville. Often go on Saturday mornings. Tucked in a strip shopping center it is easy to locate parking.

Try anything and everything - but don't miss out on the Cranberry walnut loaf! This local business is well worth our support.

You have to stop by this bakery/cafe and try there breads, fresh no preservatives. As all there baked goodies are. I like there take home homemade dinners to take home and cook.

I have had the best and worst experiences ever from Rising Sun. Generally their bread is pretty good but eat it quickly, there are no preservatives! I've had lunch several times but stopped eating lunch there when I got a Reuben that was charcoal black when I returned to my office with it. Make sure you have some extra time... More

Rising Sun Bakery is more than a bakery. It is a restaurant/café and also sells meals to take home to cook. The owner uses healthy, organic grains and sells honey and other items. The food is delicious. I eat here at least once a week and take home meals for later. The menu has some staples, but the owner tries... More
