The energy of Rising Roll Gourmet Café greets you as you walk in the door of this truly unique restaurant. Innovative thinking is behind every one of the made from scratch recipes, gourmet sandwiches, breakfast items, and baked goods.

When the first Rising Roll Gourmet Café opened in 1999 under the name “Uptown Gourmet” the focus was on quality and variety, serving only lunch and lunch catering.
