    Finally...got to visit this lil gem on our east coast trip. Worth the drive. If you want breakfast type items be there earlier. Even at nearly 6pm there were still some great choices! Chocolate chip cookies are big, soft and full of chips. Yummy! Everything is GF. Some vegan options too.

    The entire bakery is gf. They’ve got two tables that each seat two. Their lunch menu has two sandwich options that were both delicious. A BLT and a turkey & cheddar. Both served on THE BEST gf rolls I’ve ever had. Moist and flavorful. We got several goodies to go.

    Dedicated celiac bakery! I had a breakfast biscuit, very tasty! My boyfriend who does not have celiac had the BLT, as they ran out of turkey for the turkey sandwich he had ordered. They were very apologetic about it and gave us a free menu item of our choice. We shared a cheesecake, which was our favorite dessert, as well as a carrot cupcake and a Nutella brownie.

    The BLT and the turkey cheese sandwich with bacon were both quite tasty as was the Nutella brownie! The staff were friendly and gracious and helped us quickly as we were in a time crunch. Many other dessert and bakery items looked fresh and I definitely plan to return when I’m back in town.

    Although celiac friendly, the pastries we tried (cinnamon roll, eclair) were terrible. We cannot believe how many positive reviews they have. Also basically no seating.

    Wow a gem! After our first visit we had to return before our vacation was over. Gluten free croissants, chocolate eclairs were amazing and did taste gluten free. My daughter was over the moon with her choices! My sons loved the egg sandwiches in bagels. They do ship and we may be ordering!

    I love it when you find a local gem while on vacation. I knew the moment I read that they had GF croissants we would be going there. The croissants were delicious!! And were also brought home bagels, bread, biscuits and cookies - I can't wait to try them all. Plus, the bakery ships so I will be placing orders in the very near future. This bakery is 100% Gluten Free

    Amazing! Delicious! Entirely gluten free (many items also available dairy, egg, nut &/or soy free). Two tables inside to eat at, fantastic coffee too. Cute neighborhood, come visit; you’ll not be disappointed here. It’s safe and it’s spectacular!

    Well worth the 40 min walk I just took to get here. The cinnamon roll is so good and the ham and cheese sandwich had the best gluten free bread I’ve ever tried. The red velvet cupcake was eh but over all I’m happy :)

    Wonderful breads! Easy walk from my conference hotel meant I could have a real breakfast every day! Coffee was great. Can get an egg sandwich in the morning! Gf croissants were the best I’ve had in a long time. Wish I could fill my suitcase with goodies to come home with!

    Incredible baked goods, and 100% celiac friendly. Had a croissant for the first time in 10 years, and it was absolutely delicious! Everything I tried had amazing texture and tasted just like the real thing. Will go back to Rise again and again.

    I stop in here periodically when I'm craving a safe, gluten free treat. The shop is 100% GF and they also take into account various food allergies when making their treats. Everything I've tried has been good but I especially love the bagel breakfast Sammie. So delicious!

    Both the food and the service were fantastic! Because my friend and I were visiting from out of town they agreed to make sandwiches for us even though we got there after their normal lunch service (I went for the eclairs and had forgotten they make sandwiches). I got a simple ham and cheese sandwich and loved it. the bread was light and fluffy and slightly sweet. My friend's breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel smelled really good, too. And my eclair was totally worth the trip! I haven't had an eclair in at least 5 years and I am so glad I visited this bakery! I also got a croissant, a raspberry bar, and a couple doughnuts while I was there. I haven't tried them yet, but I'm really looking forward to breakfast tomorrow!

    Meh. We were in DC for a day trip and decided to stop here on the way home. We have a local GF bakery that we love and I am a decent baker. We went at the end of the day Sunday, so selection was low but I'm not really impressed with the flavor or texture of the things we ordered. We will try another GF place next visit.

    Celiac heaven!!! First croissant I've ever found gluten free. Plain, ham and cheese, or chocolate. Or there are eclairs, or cupcakes, or cake, or cookies, or breads, or bagels... worth schlepping across the country for, let alone getting across D.C. for.

    I really don't know where to start here. Rise is one of the best places I found since I got my celiac diagnosis last year. The food is amazing. Non-celiacs will love the food too - it's not boring and dry gluten free food. As someone who lived without a gluten allergy for 25 years, I know good baked goods and Rise's food is better than 99% of bakeries I've been to. Best dishes? The nutella brownies and chocolate creme pie. Also, get the superfood bread in bulk. It may look small but it packs HUGE taste and keeps forever. I get 2-3 loaves every time I go in.

    It feels good to walk into a bakery and feel normal. I had a delicious ham and cheese croissant and a frittata- and I didn't have to mention my celiac disease once, because everything there is safe! Wish I had a Rise Bakery where I live.
