Completely gluten free, most food is free from at least 1 or 2 other allergens.

Some things outstanding, like the mini keylime pie, flourless chocolate cake, and some sandwiches. Some are ok like the cinnamon roll. But there are options. So many options.

I've had several kinds of sandwiches, pizza, a dozen kinds of pastries. The first time I visited, I think ordered almost $100 worth of food.

Everything is gluten free which is great. Problem is that the products don’t have the best texture. The bagel is super rubbery and tough to eat. The chocolate croissant was dry and too buttery. The chocolate eclair was dense and lacked sufficient filling.

I’ve been to Rise Bakery numerous times and I’ve never been disappointed. My husband who isn’t gluten free loves their food too! In fact, we drive a whole state away to come visit!! Their breakfast sandwiches are delicious, they have the best soft pretzel, and their pastries are phenomenal! I cannot say enough good things about this place! (FYI I have a gluten allergy so a dedicated restaurant is the absolute best)

This place is 100% gluten free and truly SO good!! I have a big sweet tooth that has been really hard to please since being diagnosed with celiacs, but this place really hit the spot and had so many delicious options. My husband who typically doesn’t like gluten free things said he couldn’t even tell and loved it. Definitely recommend!

A whole GF bakery, what a relief for a celiac! However, I found that their labelling of lunch items (sandwiches etc) was insufficient and staff gave really confused statements when we enquired which lunch items we dairy-free. Please label all your options and train your staff better! I liked the sweet options they had, but was quite disappointed in their bread and bagels. Considering the quality, it is also really expensive.

I got the vegan chocolate chip cookies and the dairy free chocolate cake and they were absolutely amazing. Even my picky brother loved them. Any celiac wanting some baked goods should definitely go here. The only thing I got a stomach ache from was eating too much. The only down side was not having many different options for the baked goods, but I got what I wanted so I’m happy.

The bagel sandwiches (egg and bacon) were yummy but not exceptional. My daughter really liked her grilled cheese. Don’t get your hopes up about the croissants. In no way does it taste or flake like a traditional croissants, it’s more like a dense sweet roll. The cinnamon roll was better but also dense and dry. I always appreciate a 100% GF bakery and seek them out- but I wouldn’t bother going here again.

We went to Rise during our visit to DC and we’re excited to bring our kids to a dedicated GF bakery. The food was pretty good. We tried the grilled cheese, turkey pesto, and BLT sandwiches. The cinnamon rolls were a bit dense, but still had good flavor. Unfortunately, I’m giving them 2 stars because the service wasn’t great and the prices are high even for a GF restaurant. The person who took our order seemed very unhappy to be there. Also, we took our order to go and by the time we realized they forgot one of our sandwiches (which cost $10.95 btw), instead of offering to make it so we could drive by to pick it up they defaulted to refunding the money. Showed no interest in helping us out even though we offered to drive by again. Not sure we’d visit again.
