My fav! Lots of options and the baked goods are fabulous. Cafe food is definitely over priced and not really anything special, but so worth it to eliminate the stress of worrying about CC. One of the very few options for safe, fast gf food in this area. Super inclusive space and staff as well!

Amazing options, great coffee and my breakfast sandwich was amazing. The biscuit was fluffy and light and the eggs were so good. I also got a donut and an eclair which were both amazing! Highly recommend

I think I’m one of few who thinks their food is dry and doesn’t taste great. At both locations I’ve been to the staff has been very flat and mildly helpful. If this is your standard for “good” gf baked goods, I need to open a shop because blech. Like I was so excited due to the hype that I bought multiple things, early in their day, from both shops— no sir. My guess is mass hysteria???

The chocolate croissant was the best gf croissant I’ve had outside Europe. The ham and cheese croissant was also delicious, as were the eclairs and the peanut butter bars.

I cannot recommend the cinnamon bun; it was dry. But perhaps I just caught it on an off day?

Overall, terrific food and a wonderful safe haven in DC!!

Rise is always delicious. I love their pastries and the staff is super friendly. The whole menu is gf so you don’t even need to ask. They also have vegan and dairy free options! Pastry menu changes daily and the lunch options are always the same but yummy. Personal favorites include the danish, key lime pie, and tuna melt sandwich. Not a big fan of the cupcakes but other than that it makes being a celiac much more tolerable as I can enjoy an occasional pastry that’s not dry or crummy. :)

The cookies are good. I love that they are very allergy friendly and everything is gluten-free. Several breads are quite dense but my kids like them still. I’ve had better gluten free cupcakes but that’s okay. It’s great to eat worry free!

This was gluten free and did not make me sick, but was not worth the visit. We came an hour after opening for a late breakfast and got two different bagel sandwiches. Both were rubbery and tough, with nothing special considering the price. Try a different bakery if you’re looking for something besides cupcakes.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars, this place is absolutely incredible. Everything is gluten free, and even though the pastries themselves would be enough to warrant a perfect review, they also have breakfast sandwiches, paninis, and pizza with a real crust! Thanks to the wonderful people at Rise I got to have a cinnamon roll and a bagel breakfast sandwich for the first time in over 5 years. This is officially my absolute favorite place, and worth it every single time. My non-gluten free family and friends love it too!

Everything on the menu is labeled — and the entire kitchen is dedicated gluten-free. I had a donut for the first time in YEARS, and it was so good! I also got a toasted bagel with cream cheese and some bacon. The only thing I’d say to be aware of is there is no inside seating right now due to Covid-19. However, I was able to sit at a table right outside!

I am gluten sensitive and skeptical of gf products. I am usually very disappointed. My husband who has no gluten issues said we should go in and take a look. Wow! We got the cheddar jalapeño bread and the challa. I have only tried the cheddar jalapeño but I am a fan. Toasted it and it tasted just like I remember bread tasting. The mouth feel was not at all gummy. Thank you for creating a great product.
