Rise and shine!

There is a new breakfast place in Durham and it is awesome!  

Rise, just opened a month ago in the Renaissance Village shopping center beside the Super Target near South Point Mall.
Don't be daunted by the long line.  Just take a number and wait.  It is totally worth it!

They specialize in biscuits and donuts and even offer a gluten-free donut (it is fried in the same oil though).  The biscuits are just the right combo of fluffy, cheesy, and crispy.  Yum!  The combinations are perfect and even include pimento cheese.

The donuts are unique and decadent.  I tried the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, The Maple Bacon Roll, The Pineapple Glaze, and the Gluten-free Chocolate Pistachio.  My favorite was the Pineapple Glaze which is filled with basil whip cream and topped with pistachios and a light pineapple glaze, then the Maple Bacon Roll which was topped with a maple glaze and a large slice of bacon, yum!

I love that the place was packed and feels more suited for the downtown area.  But I am thankful that south Durham gets to experience the unique flavor of Rise.
