The sleek, bright interior of On the Rise bakery contradicts the old-world charm of the delicious baked goods it produces. The breads have deep, phenomenal flavors, and the pastries are melt-in-your-mouth good. The chocolate croissants are not to be missed. There’s usually something available for sampling, which is a good way to decide what to buy next. The charming counter staff greet customers with a warm smile, which is a very nice way to start a morning.
