Rise Gourmet Good and Bake Shop
926 Harden St
Columbia, SC 29205
Started by NYC patisserie master Sarah Simmons, Rise is a French bake shop with a southern twist. In a tastefully decorated shop colored with Tiffany blue and caramel, the ambitious operation prepares sandwiches, whips infused creams like burnt cinnamon and spiced pumpkin, and bakes and one-of-a-kind baked goods like a citrus, brioche-based muffin and a blondie called a Take 6 -- Simmons' take on the popular candy bar. And to fully utilize every inch of the space, the menu also features savory dishes like soups, sandwiches, and salads.
