I have been in Savannah for two years, and I have disappointed in the lack of breakfast places and bakeries downtown. Now that has changed with the opening of Rise Biscuits and Donuts. Rise started in Durham, North Carolina and now it is about six cities in the Southeast. The Savannah location is the first one in Georgia. If you work downtown, you will be happy to know that Rise opens early at 7AM. It is located at 10 West Broughton Street.
Yesterday I stopped by for the ribbon cutting, and I enjoyed a bacon egg and cheese biscuit as well as a chocolate doughnut and a Cheerwine doughnut. The Cheerwine one has an icing that tastes like the North Carolina’s favorite soda, Cheerwine. I highly recommend Rise and I like that they also give back to the local community. 10% of the sales on their opening day July 1st will go to the Low Country Down Syndrome Society.
