I haven’t posted on this blog in forever (wonder why?), but since life as a parent seems to involve weekly runs to Target, I felt that it was only right to acknowledge one major side benefit to this new lifestyle. A couple of months ago, a breakfast spot opened next to Target called Rise Biscuits & Donuts. Turns out, even though the waits are insanely long, if you make your husband stand in line while you run across the parking lot to pick up a few things, upon your return, you might just find the best biscuit ever waiting for you.
One major bonus for me is that I’m partial to eggs that are a bit runny, and that’s a topping option. You can go creative with rotating specials like their Huevos Rancheros, Chicken Fried Steak, Califlower, or Mac & Cheese varieties, but the basic menu is more than good enough. And, if you want some sweet to go with your savory, you can really pig out courtesy of their decadent donut case. Most of their varieties seemed a too little over-the-top and gimmicky to me (reminiscent of Voodoo Donuts in Portland), but then I tried their creme brulee and chocolate pudding options….and, well, I’m in trouble!
I took my sister here for her first NC meal post-Ethiopia and she agreed that the waits are worth it – although according to their Facebook postings, sounds like they’re taking some steps to speed up the ordering. Enjoy – and don’t say I didn’t warn you!
