REVIEWS OF On the Rise Bread Company IN Virginia

Carlo Dy

The food was okay. Coffee, especially the espresso, was not so good. I'd go there for their breads but that's about it.

The Little Gallery Virginia

Mary Vargas

So many delicious things here. Just had the sweet potato and chorizo hash breakfast pizza. Flavor was unexpected and so delightful! One of my favorite places to get breakfast downtown!

Jerry Austin

Marty Stamps

Great options; I love their salads.

Audrey Brunell

Coffee was okay, chai tea was from a concentrate and not homemade (Oregon Chai) so I was disappointed by that, and also by the fact that they don't make their own bagels (they're from Roanoke Bagel Co.). The drinks were way overpriced for how tiny they were.

Warren Carlough

This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch. The breads are great, pizza by the slice, sandwiches, the baked goods are amazing. Preacher cookies. Yes thats right. Homemade preacher cookies always fresh.

Ka Sea

The Little Gallery

Are you In the mood for the best blueberry muffins in Roanoke, Virginia? You can enjoy the cinnamon crunch topping on the moist blueberry- laden muffin. Absolutely baked by gifted hands!

Terrific place and food. Excellent breakfast pizza. They made a cake for 20+ people and did an outstanding job. Highly recommended.

Melissa Mitcham

The Marketplace salad is fabulous

Anna Lee Rossomando

Great food, good service.

Ali Weigel

Quaint place. The pastries look really really good. The sandwich and soup I got was not spectacular but good. I'd say they skimp on the meat. I do have to mention a huge pet peeve of mine is dirty tables. It didn't seem like the table I sat at had been wiped down in a long time... Possibly all day or yesterday. I don't like sticky fingers before I eat. This is my first time eating here and I'd definitely come back and try one of their other sandwiches before making a final decision.

Patricia Price

Kelsey Williams

Stephanie Morris

Great service, wonderful selection of baked goods.

Fatuma Abazinab

Best restaurant in Roanoke hands down! The pizza is what I usually get. The bread is also so good. Love the staff too!

Ashley Mullins

I love the lemon Bars and mocha coffee on ice.

Travis Gortney

The staff is friendly enough. The blueberry scone was bland and (after being warmed) had a taste of char. The almond milk latte had over steamed milk. My friend seemed to enjoy her bacon, egg, and cheese pizza, however.

joseph pritchard

The Italian and blue cheese pizza! Primo.

Danielle Harris

Undoubtedly, the best pizza in Roanoke.

Lisa Gardner

Just passing through Roanoke. I had a red eye and a cup of curried veggie soup. The soup came with a fresh baked roll. All excellent! The atmosphere is perfect, airy, open, and funky but still professional. I wish we had a place like this in Huntsville, AL. I think it goes well with the college town vibe. My only complaint is they use lots of styrofoam. I would love to see them at least use paper to go coffee cups.

Sara Yacoubian

Without question, OtR is my go-to lunch place downtown. I work nearby and frequently walk here. Their bread is always fresh. The desserts are to die for. The staff is friendly. The specials are creative and rotate. It is a little sad to see specials never resurface, like the pimento grilled cheese. So good. Their tomato cheddar soup is perfect. Their pizza is fluffy and fat. Their cakes are sweet, fresh, and flavorful. I can't think of any beef about this place besides the fact that they close at 4. I'd love to have dinner somewhere this cozy and casual. Forget Panera. On the Rise all day.

Cheryle Jordan

There were 3 people working and no one was working the front. I stood there for 3 minutes and no one ever came up. I could see them in the back and I know they could see me. They lost my business

Elizabeth OConnor

This is the only place in Roanoke to get authentic french bread. All their food is excellent. And the staff are friendly and efficient.

Vegetarian sandwich was great, fresh ingredients. Great and friendly service.


I love this place! Everything is delicious. They made my wedding cake, and even came out on a Sunday at set it up. It was beautiful and very tasty.

Henry Whelchel

On The Rise Bread Company has the best airy pizza crust in memory. All of their breads are delicious, and the staff is warm and helpful. Highly recommended.

Wonderfully warm atmosphere. The smell of fresh baked bread instantly reminds you of being at Grandma's while she was baking. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is extremely nice. You can instantly tell that everything baked here is made with love and pride. This is the best place in Roanoke to get amazing fresh baked bread.

We FINALLY got a chance to stop by this wonderful bakery in Roanoke. We visited the downtown location at about 11:30 am and while we were gawking at all the food options, several people walked in behind us and lined up to be served. So... this place is pretty popular, even though it is relatively small and tucked away in the city market area of downtown. That let us know right away that the food here must be great. The atmosphere is lovely and cozy. The people are kind and helpful and the food we saw looked amazing. We took some treats to go for later in the day and were not disappointed. The lunch options include cold and hot sandwiches, soup and pizza - with many bakery items for sale. We got the feeling that they make a limited amount every day and when it's gone... it's gone. So if you find a favorite item, stop by early to grab it or you might be out of luck. Everything we had was fresh and prepared very well. It's hard to find a really good local bakery that knows their stuff. Stop by and support this business. Your tongue will thank you!

Pizza was okay. Gave me minor stomach cramps a few hours later.

July 16th, 2015 I have visited On the Rise in the past years and have always been very satisified with the service and food. I was looking forward to a dessert today and took along a friend. One costumer was being waited on at the register. After the staff finished the transaction she never moved away to help me, another staff member came from the back and walked down behind the counter, never spoke. I had to ask her directly to help me. She handed the bag to the staff at the register. I was asked for the money, she handed me my change. I had to reach across 3/4 of the width of the counter to pick up my purchase. I've never written a review before , but I just can't ignore this behavior by a business to a customer. I would think the owners would like to know how their employees are treating customers. The one star is for the service not the excellent scone:)

Charles Vtipilson



Pizza was amazing the scone was spicy yet not hot and the muffins are the most and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and beautiful. I'm so glad we made time to eat here

Lauren Gilley

Peggy Cleary

No decaf espresso for the espresso drinks, though they did tell us which place could serve us some. Great (off too large)baked goods-brownies, cookies, etc. Also cakes + breads to take away.


Superb service, attention to detail. Customization of offered meals was not frowned upon. Espresso was firmly acidic, robust. Highly recommended.
