If you love biscuits and donuts this is the place for you. I love the chicken, cheeses and fried egg bisquit to everyone. I look foward to getting one every time I get down in the area. The donuts are delicious and I am not a donut eater. The donuts are not sickly sweet, line Krispy Kreme, and cone in... More

I went to their new location on 401 Forster but it is not listed yet in Trip Advisor. Decided to skip the Marriott breakfast and get something local. Just 2 blocks away, this place has incredible donuts. Had a tasty biscuit as well. Only downside is no place to sit. Wish they had a place to sit and eat without... More

Personally go for the scrambled egg biscuit and a must to add a donut. Easy serve yourself ipad to order with. Need an app to enhance this one to speed up the wait.

We had breakfast biscuits which were perfect southern egg and sausage biscuits. And we had some donuts. Specifically, apple fritter, lemon classic, banana foster, carrot cake and the surprise deliciousness of the pineapple basil with pistachios on top. SUPER nice staff and great visit. Thanks!

We visited Rise for the first time and the line was out the door. A small space, and it sounded like a LOT of the customers were frequent repeat visitors. They have a lot of options, including those for vegetarians like my husband and I. We both got a biscuit with egg, cheese, and eggplant "bacon," and a hash brown... More

We went to the downtown Durham location the morning after a night out at the DPAC. We live out of town, and searched for breakfast nearby our hotel. What a find!! The most delicious chicken biscuit I've ever had. And the donuts we to die for. Simple menu, as the name suggests, but they do it right! We need one... More

If you are staying in the area, this is a must stop place for breakfast on the go. If you eat there, it is only outdoor seating. Everything is great!

I have eaten here so many times. Everything I have eaten here has been great. More expensive than grocery store donuts? Yes, but SO good, and I am a cheapskate. Try the Maple Bacon Bar, or the Guava filled donut if they are available. For a simple southern biscuit, go with the sausage and egg with pimento cheese.

We enjoyed our biscuits and it was nice to have free donut holes while waiting. I liked seeing the credit card order kiosk.
