Breakfast with a Twist

RISE! a breakfast place is the newest creation from Chefs David & Gay Daggett. The Daggetts bring their passion and creativity for food to the breakfast table. RISE! opened its doors on June 17 2014 bringing a casual fun creative twist to the “most important meal of the day”. The Daggetts philosophy has always been to offer fresh wholesome foods prepared from scratch in a warm inviting atmosphere.

RISE! continues that philosophy featuring local cage free eggs, natural meats and plates such as Organic Scrapple with Granny Smith Apple Butter, Gluten Free Corn Cakes with House Berkshire Chorizo Sausage with Roasted Poblano Jam, Banana Pancake with Peanut Butter Maple Butter just to name a few!

RISE! also features a full liquor license specializing in Artisan Breakfast and Lunch Cocktails. The eclectic dining room showcases local artists, a custom re-purposed pine and beetle kill bar, and a beautiful patio to enjoy Colorado’s many days of sunshine! RISE! is vegetarian, gluten free, and kid friendly. We welcome you to come on in say hi and let us help you start your day with much happiness!
