The crunchy french toast is the best I have ever tasted! Awesome service!
Can't Be Beat for Breakfast or Brunch. I can't overstate my pleasure with Rise & Dine. Typically only open breakfast and lunch hours (and Wednesday evenings last time I was there), but it's more than worth it to get up early.
I've never had the slightest dissatisfaction with anything I've ever ordered here: it has all been, to put it simply, delicious. The coconut-encrusted french toast, above all else. I could elaborate on other items, but it's safe to say, whatever you order, it's probably gonna be great.
Furthermore, I've never seen a more friendly or cheerful staff in my life. The service is so consistently wonderful and welcoming, the more pessimistic might wonder if it's a put-upon, but it all seems so genuine that even that is hard to believe. And even more importantly, it's all done fast and accurately, remarkable given how busy it always seems to be here (understandably.)
Rise & Dine has much more in common with Grandma's Iowa farm cooking than it does with any IHOP or similar pancake house. I couldn't recommend it more.
Delicious breakfast and excellent service!
I wish we lived a little closer to this place because it would be a part of my morning routine. So why not 5 stars?
This is what I didn't like: Indoor seating area was freezing. Restrooms we're clean but old.
Outdoor chairs were the metal armchairs which were not comfortable.
Here is what they did right: They specialize in breakfast and lunch food so they cook it well.
We we're seated quickly and server was friendly and attentive. Our food arrived quickly and correctly as ordered. The food tasted really good. I had the Johnnycake Benedict. It was a corncake pancake with avacado and poached eggs. I ordered with hashbrowns- which were very good-but I wish I would have had the side of fruit, just to have a sweet with the salty taste. Overall I was impressed. My husband had the Cornbeef Hash. He also said that he was pleased with the taste.
Two other things that were noteworthy are the fact that they had flavored creamer for coffee and a wide variety of jellies for bread.
