Great gluten-free choices for breakfast which is very rare around here. We go there in the morning on the way to work. Sometimes the service is not great. For some reason, they only keep one person at the register getting drinks while others are doing work in the kitchen area (or talking). One of them should step up when it's busy. But the variety of choices and the chai tea latte is the best in the area. In the summer, the small porch in the back is great. Good place for family but not super comfortable.

I have only tried it once and came at the end of the day, so I may have been there at an off moment. When walking in on Saturday at 255pm (they close at 3pm), a worker outside said "the register is closed" as she passed us in the doorway. We noticed other people ordering coffee and paying so we ordered some cookies to go (10 maple buttons=$15). Someone came up to the counter after us and ordered more food so they clearly had not "closed the register". Then, the same person who said the register was closed announced to the completely full dining room that the front door was now locked and everyone would have to leave through the side door. We left immediately after paying and exited through the side door. There was a metal shelf by the sidewalk that leads back to the parking lot and we had to squeeze through a small opening between this shelf and some bush with thorns that snagged our coats. Some people behind us stopped and seemed to contemplate turning around at the near impasse, but then squeezed through reluctantly. Cookies were good. I'll definitely try it again, but will likely go earlier when the front door is still open and the staff is still fresh.

On the snowy day of the Richmond Country Fair complete with wagon rides, crafts and goodies for sale, my hot lunch that I got at On The Rise just hit the spot. Great tasting original recipe soup and bread.

Okay spot for lunch and the outdoor gardens are nice. I've had soups, sandwiches and smoothies. They were all okay but not good eough to keep me coming back...except that there aren't a lot of alternatives up here.

Have tried a few times and always have fair to poor service, staff acts like they are annoyed, bakery items are just ok. Better options close by
