"Rise & Shine was started by Seth Rubin after he decided working for others was a bad idea. He combined his love of great coffee and good, old-fashioned, Southern-style biscuits to create the concept of a biscuit kitchen and cafe."
According to its Facebook page, that's the back-story behind Rise & Shine Biscuit Kitchen and Cafe, which opened earlier this month at 330 Holly Street, in the same space that occupies Basil Doc's Pizza. The small chalkboard menu hustles plain biscuits (all of which are baked in house), breakfast biscuits and biscuit sandwiches, alongside jolts of java. Hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
