You will most definitely rise and shine if you’re planning a visit to Rise and Shine!
I stumbled upon Rise and Shine after a 6am cycle class down the street, and obviously the name caught my eye. So I googled it, and all I had to see was biscuits and I was in! Its in a small stand alone shop in the SloHi neighborhood. (which is apparently a neighborhood now) Be aware there is an open parking lot to the west of the building inviting you to park there but unfortunately it’s not their parking lot, but there is plenty of street parking around the block.
So a little back story the guy who started this place is a native of North Carolina, where classic buttermilk biscuits are a staple to breakfast…and to life for that matter. So upon surveying the Denver scene and finding no good biscuits like the ones back home, Rise and Shine was born. For a more in depth version of the story check out their about page and FAQ (You’ll chuckle at the FAQ I guarantee it) Now the thing that makes you really feel like you took a trip to the south is the hospitality. The staff is so friendly, true southern hospitality style. I felt welcomed, and invited to make myself at home. They offer couch seating for meet ups with friends or table and high top bar seating to sharing a biscuit, a book, or some work.
They feature a biscuit of the day, and you can find the list of upcoming biscuits here. They also serve local coffee roaster Pablo’s coffee. The best part is their menu is simple and you can choose from 6 of their biscuit sandwiches named after North Carolina cities, or create your own sandwich. And to hit that sweet spot they offer a Hatteras, which is a cinnamon roll biscuit…..yes, a freakin’ cinnamon roll biscuit!!
Don’t even get me started on the price, because it’s beyond reasonable! A single biscuit will cost you a whopping $1.35, additional toppings will cost between 50 cents to $1.50. And a sandwich off the menu will cost under $5 (All the thumbs up emojis)
I personally love getting a classic buttermilk biscuit with sausage, egg, and cheese. Picture a McDonald’s sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit but on steroids…and MUCH fresher.
If you’re looking for a simple and delicious breakfast spot, Rise and Shine is the place. I cycle at High Ride Cycle down the street so when I get a good workout in, I feel like I deserve a biscuit! #TreatYoSelf
I recommend Rise and Shine for any occasion!
