Our croissants are completely revolutionary in the world of gluten-free baking and stand out as our customers' most popular item.

We have a variety of gluten-free croissant options from sweet (chocolate and almond) to savory (ham and cheese). Our croissants RISE!

Because we eat gluten-free ourselves, the staff at Rise Bakery knows how hard it is to find quality, consistent gluten-free bread. We've tasted it all, from breads that are hard and dense; others with huge air bubbles and no bounce; to those that are dry and fall apart when you look at them. Our bread is truly different. Consistent with our name, our bread actually rises! If you touch it, the bread compresses and expands back to its original form. The texture is perfect and the taste is even better. We're confident our bread will be the highlight of your sandwich.
