I visited this establishment last Saturday, during the st. Patrick day celebration. I thought they would put their best foot forward with the lunch time special - Rueben with a side of beer cheese soup. I was wrong The soup (imagine yellow disk water) was not good. It was yellow in color but was void of any taste and literally... More

This place is wonderful. Very homey feel, super nice staff, and the food was all wonderful. The pizza was a huge hit, as were the cookies :). My kids loved it. We will absolutely be going back. If you're in Roanoke- definitely go here!

Stopped in during the "Lighting of the Square" event for a sandwich and some soup and it was wonderful. The service was fast and the food was excellent. I had the Muffaletta and it was a bit spicy, but tasted great on a cold night. My wife got the Turkey Brie and it was fabulous. Well recommended.

Stopped here for breakfast. It's a great place to grab a bagel, muffin, scone, or delicious brownie. We had ordered takeout sandwiches to eat during a hike, but they ended up being pretty tough to eat due to the bread choice. The restaurant is in centrally located and a great place to stroll the arts and crafts market after having... More

On our way home from Nashville to Baltimore we spend the night in Roanoke. We really enjoyed visiting the downtown. We got sandwiches to go for the ride home on the Blue Ridge Pkwy at On the Rise. The service was great, nice little restaurant that not only looked cool but smelled delicious. There is nothing better than fresh baked... More

Located in the center of the Historic Roanoke City Market downtown, the "On the Rise Cafe" was a refreshing stop. They are a bakery, sandwich shop and everything in between. We really enjoyed our sandwiches and the neat, quaint atmosphere. Pizza was great. Service was quick, efficient, and friendly. Definitely would return.

Soup, salad, or sandwich. It's good and the service is friendly. We particularly enjoyed the bread.Suggest as a lunch destination rather than for dinner.

I love their baked goods. Specifically the oatmeal fudge bars. They are the perfect treat after hiking! :)
