Great donuts. Never too long of a wait and the staff is very friendly.
Update 6/16/19: the wait times have gotten ridiculous. The food is still great, but unless you want to wait in an overly crowded hallway, this isn't worth the wait. Off-peak times are probably a lot better.

Great local food. Unique menu. Friend green tomato biscuit with pimento is incredible!

Been going here since it first opened. Their donuts are good, but I really go for the biscuits (bacon, egg, cheese) which are truly amazing.
I do like the outdoor seating...kinda wish they had more space on the inside for those rainy days.
Also, the key to survival is do not go on Saturday or Sunday morning :) By that, I mean, the lines can be crazy, I would avoid going there between 8-10am on those days if you can resist.

Updated: Jan 2019. Since Rise had been expanding to new locations their quality at all locations including here at the original has severely dropped. They don't put as much topping on their biscuits as they used to, using significantly less bacon which is not cooked well. They're donuts are no longer that good, and they no longer have rotating specials. They have switched coffee beans to a worse company. Overall I no longer recommended Rise.
Best biscuits in town! I'm not a big donuts/sweets person, but theirs are delicious! Love the rotating specials and donuts to keep things fresh. While not the best coffee it has gotten better... But really, who's going there for the coffee?

Exceeded my expectations! We had the chicken biscuit, the tree hugger, and an applewood bacon. My husband put jelly on his egg, bacon, and cheese, for which I condemned him, but I stand corrected. Adding jelly somehow worked... like Joey "custard, good. Jam, good. Beef, good!"
