I'm a big fan of Rise. The biscuits and donuts are delicious. If we lived any closer, we'd be fat people from visiting so often. Their biscuit breakfast sandwiches are very tasty. We've had the fried chicken, different pork ones and beef ones, all very flavorful. The biscuits are a good balance of soft and flaky, and they are a good size for breakfast. It's worth it to try the specials. We always go for the apple fritter also when we visit. It's a pretty big and rich donut. I refuse to buy donuts anywhere else in town.
The staff are welcoming people. Guests typically get through the line quickly.
Another plus is that they're open earlier than most breakfast places. We're early birds, so we appreciate places that open before 8am.
The shop is rather small, so eating there is pretty much restricted to the outside tables. We often bring the food home. On the weekends, there are many runners that show up together.
I recommend Rise to everyone I know.
